In 2013 East North Carolina met West Michigan to form a new music group, Frederic and Ronza. This husband and wife duo are singers, songwriters, and musicians who perform with passion and skill and span many genres to reach a wide audience. With a soulful sound that ranges from Rhythm and Blues to Country, their unique style touches hearts, and the lyrics come to life in a remarkable way.
Some of their influences include: Marvin Gaye and Tammie Terrell, Lady Antebellum, John Legend, and the Carpenters. Frederic and Ronza also create songs of their own, and in 2013 they were finalists in the Acorn Theatre singer-songwriter contest.
This is what fans say: "Love the strong harmonies”; “Refreshing talent”; “Great performers”; “Incredibly moving and special performance".
In addition to Frederic and Ronza, the audience will be treated to an opening performance by Livia Gazzolo, a very talented young singer from Southwest Michigan. Livia has the voice of an angel and a repertoire that includes pop, jazz, and show tunes. Livia will be accompanied by Tim Giessner, an outstanding young local pianist.
