Derik Nelson & Family
Fri, July 12 @ 8:00 pm
Smooth Family Harmonies
On genuine, passionate interpretations of original and cover songs, Derik Nelson with his siblings, Riana and Dalten, offer a rare opportunity to hear the perfectly blended harmonies only a family can deliver. Derik appeared regularly as lead guitarist on “Glee,” and both Riana and Dalten pursued performance careers, before the three joined together as a group. Now their acoustic jazz and folk infused sound, combined with stunning video displays, creates an irresistible aural and visual journey that appeals to all ages. One of just 15 groups named US Cultural Ambassadors in 2018, Derik, Riana and Dalten shared their engaging sound with audiences in Moldova and Albania last fall.
In the week leading up to the concert on July 12, Derik, Riana and Dalten will work with local students in a workshop format, offering a priceless opportunity to expand their musical skills. The weeklong workshop will focus on developing singing, songwriting and performance techniques. At the end of the week, students will showcase their talents in a performance for family and friends. Registration for the workshop will open in the spring. Space is limited.
