Around Cape Ann: A weekend of choices

This weekend is brimming with cultural events from several public art opening receptions, from Rocky Neck to Boston.

And music lovers have their choices as well, with an abundant array of concerts featuring some of Cape Ann’s finest talent as well as visiting artists. Read on for a sampling:

New Orleans benefit concert

Grammy winner Charles Neville joins Henri Smith and his band for a Mardi Gras style benefit concert at the historic Larcom Theatre in Beverly Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

This concert was originally scheduled for Feb. 8, but was postponed due to that weekend’s Blizzard of 2013, which struck Feb. 8-9.

All tickets for the February date will be honored. Half of the proceeds go to the YMCA service program, in which Cape Ann teens will join other teens on a service-learning trip to help rebuild the Katrina-ravaged Gulf Coast city.

General Admission tickets are $20 in advance ($15 for people over 65 or under 18) and $25 at the door for all ages. Tickets are at many North Shore YMCA offices and on-line at: http://www.gimmelive.tv/.

There are a limited number of VIP packages (premium reserved seating, meet & greet, exclusive pre-show party, Cajun inspired buffet catered by Chianti’s of Beverly and more) by calling 978-525-9093.

Captain Phil’s art show

Cape Ann artist Capt. Phil Cusumano will hold an art show and sale at the Gloucester House Restaurant on Friday and Saturday, April 6 from noon to 8 p.m.

To make room for his new works, he is offering his complete inventory in this two-day event.

Captain Phil Cusumano is a signature member of A.S.M.A., I.S.M.P., Marblehead Art Assoc. and Newburyport Art Assoc. Phil’s artistic style is one that envelops the viewer into the mood of a canvas moment.
