Adalia Tara in Living Room Music Series at CPL Sedona
The Center for Positive Living Sedona (aka CPL Sedona), located in the Village of Oak Creek at 45 Castle Rock Road, has created a concert series that they call, The Living Room Music Series at CPL Sedona.
CPL Sedona's seating is limited to 40 comfortable chairs, with a stage platform and excellent sound system. These concerts are allowing for an intimate, up close and personal showcase with some of the finest performing artists in Sedona and the Verde Valley every Wednesday from 7 to 8:15 p.m. Unlike any music venues in Sedona, audience members will have the opportunity to learn about the artists by asking questions of them during their concert.
This week the Living Room at CPL Sedona presents singer songwriter musician, Adalia Tara who will enchant the audience with her songs and stories behind her music as she bares her whole heart when she performs. Her style is distinct and versatile, from resonating, deep, bluesy lows to sweet, ethereal highs, her voice commands the space. Her evocative lyrics are at the center of her soulful sound, offering insight into her personal truths and aspirations. She hopes to bring benefit to others, to inspire, to encourage positive change, and to convey messages of hope and compassion. Music is her heart and offering. It's how she gives back. For Adalia Tara, it is a part of her spiritual path that is ever unfolding.
Singer-songwriter Adalia Tara grew up outside of Washington DC, in Rockville, Maryland. As a child she always enjoyed singing, but not until she moved with her family to Sedona, Arizona when she was 12 years old did her passion for music really start to blossom. At fourteen she started writing and recording her own original music, focusing on the message and intention behind her words. In 2005, she won the Sedona Centerpolooza award for Best Singer-Songwriter
CPL Sedona's Music Director, Shondra Jepperson (known as half of the popular entertainment duo "Tom & Shondra," is the founder of the Living Room Music Series. Shondra commented, "Last week Gary Simpkins was terrific and everyone was raving about how awesome he was in concert as well as the space we're providing for this on-going Wed. night concerts. Our music series is definitely building in popularity." She continued we'll be taking Thanksgiving Day week off and by popular demand, we've decided to add the 1st three Wednesdays in Dec. After Christmas week, we'll return again on Jan. 5th." Shondra added, "What makes The Living Room concerts so unique is it offers single artists and duos a comfortable yet professional space where they can perform their music and share their personal stories about themselves, experiences, the music they play and their compositions. Most of the time, audiences never have the opportunity to ask artists questions and learn about the performer's personal stories." CPL Sedona also offers on-going Sunday celebrations at 10 a.m. with inspirational talks and music. For more information visit CplSedona.org.
This week, Wednesday, Nov. 20, The Living Room presents one of Sedona's finest musician, singer, entertainers, pianist Steve Sandner who will be performing many genres of music from Standards to Blues.
Every Wednesday, the doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for tea and coffee with the concerts starting promptly at 7 p.m. Admission is $10 cash only and because seating is limited it is highly recommended to arrive early since tickets are available only at the door the night of the concerts.
