The Ojai Art Center (OAC) is proud to announce an upcoming benefit concert by internationally acclaimed and Golden Globe artist Amanda McBroom with a very special guest, Roger Kellaway, a Grammy Award winner and Academy Award nominated pianist and composer. McBroom has performed to a sold out and enthusiastic crowd several years ago to raise funds for the Center, is “a local treasure.”
“I leapt at the chance to sing in my own home town again, to sing at all, after this period of long down time,” said McBroom, who then reached out to Kellaway. “
McBroom came to fame winning a Golden Globe with Bette Midler’s recorded version of her song “The Rose,” from the movie by the same name.
Her pal Kellaway, who has recorded more than 250 albums and counting, and has worked with everyone from Ellington to Elvis, Joni Mitchell to Barbra Streisand, and Quincy Jones.
It should be one heck of a concert and it’s for a good cause. After being shuttered during the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Art Center is thrilled these artists have stepped forward to help us continue to serve the arts community in Ojai.
