Grand Performances presents Young, Gifted & Nina: A Tribute to Nina Simone at the wondrous Water Court. Pre-concert cocktails and socializing at Noe, one of Downtown's premiere destinations. Please be punctual: it is unlikely that late-comers will be able to find the group.

The High Priestess of Soul Nina Simone used her remarkable talent and passionate storytelling to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, and love that coursed through her magnificent body of work. This heartwarming and feisty celebration of one of our most prolific cultural icons includes the powerful and dynamic vocals of Joi Gilliam, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Jimetta Rose, Sonja Marie, and an ensemble of L.A.’s finest musicians all led by Musical Director Dexter Story.

Seating at this free, outdoor concert is first come first served. No pets. 21 and over.

Celebrating 26 years of serving the people of Los Angeles, Grand Performances has become the foremost free concert series in L.A., presenting free performing arts that reflect the best of L.A.'s global culture.


HAPPY HOUR MEET & GREET

Before the concert join us for Happy Hour Meet & Greet at the upscale Noe. The Happy Hour menu features $5 well drinks and house wines, $3 domestic beers and $2 sliders. Noe is immediately adjacent to the Water Court. $5 valet parking with validation.

    An overall great night. Mix and mingle and a wonderful Tribute to Nina. A great idea to meet before the event and after. Nice to see everyone tonight. Rest well.

    Overall, the concert itself was fine but the venue's sound system was inferior. That said the folks I met were very nice and interesting and diverse. Also, a supersized thanks to Lionel for picking the best spot. Ideal viewing,granite block seating, very close to Omni restrooms, outdoor bar and Famina.

    I really enjoyed this concert (thanks Lionel for coordinating). I felt like 5:30p was a little early for me to meet for an 8p concert (but I'm introverted so that's a long time of talking). The bar location relative to Grand Performances venue was convenient.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
