What’s on this tour?
Private tours at these historical places:
The Liberty Theater– We’ll go behind the scenes for this once thriving center for blues and jazz. Musicians such as Ma Rainey, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Lena Horne and many others performed at this historical theater.
The Ma Rainey House – Ma Rainey was The Mother of the Blues. Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and has a commemorative U.S. Postage stamp. She wrote over 45 songs, despite being illiterate.
Stops at these music-producing establishments:
The Loft Recording Studio – Visitors get to see behind the scenes look at a professional recording studio. If I’m not mistaken, this is currently Columbus’ longest running recording studio. There are some smaller studios but mostly in “basements.” (We’ll take our tour break here.)
Damcaster by Georgia Quarter – They build guitars using the wood taken from the breached local dams that made way for the free flowing Chattahoochee River.
The Rivercenter for the Performing Arts w/ Columbus Symphony Orchestra- The center of Columbus’ music and live performances. The CSO is the second organized orchestra in the U.S.
