at Providence ~ Ernie Bruce
Baptist Church, Ashmun Street, Monrovia, Liberia.
Sunday, July 18, 2010
Bruce, a classical and jazz singer, performing
at the first live classical show of it's kind
since the end of the civil conflict, pulled
in a who's who of classical lovers in Monrovia.
Well attende and highly lauded, the show took
place this past Sunday at the Providence Baptist
Church on Ashmun Street. It was a class act
that ended in a tribute to his father William
G. Bruce and his first mentor from childhood,
Marilyn Robertson. Ernie's strong performance
along with his flawless accompanist, Samson
Tarpeh, earned him a standing ovation and an
"Encore". Shadrene Howard, Ernie's
production manager was on point when she said
"The time is right!" Indeed it was!
