*The Newton Piano Summit, supported by the Waban Improvement Society, is pleased to present Debo Ray, Nando Michelin & Ebinho Cardoso in Concert on Saturday, May 23, at 1:00 p.m. via Facebook Live. Overflowing with talent, Debo Ray has earned international praise for her performances in everything from doo-wop, funk, R&B, and jazz, to her work in education, video production, and fashion. Ray is also well known as a featured vocalist and music director of the award-winning, critically acclaimed group, Women of the World. Nando Michelin & Ebinho Cardoso will present music from their recent CD featuring songs based on the poems by Manoel de Barros.
