Relative Pitch series begins SundayDURHAM – Triangle-based singers Rissi Palmer and Kim Arrington have started The Relative Pitch, a monthly open mic for youths. The opening night is Sunday at The Broad Street Café, 1116 Broad St. from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcomed.
Palmer is a Billboard-charting, country singer-songwriter whose new children’s CD, “Best Day Ever,” will be released this year. Palmer had the idea to start The Relative Pitch from voice students she teaches at The Grace Note Music Studio in Raleigh.
Palmer approached Arrington, a well-known teaching artist and singer who has toured internationally, to help organize The Relative Pitch. Arrington, who will be releasing a new CD, “Getting II Yes” in 2013, said she wants to nurture the next wave of local talent.
The Relative Pitch will be presented at The Broad Street Café Nov. 11 and Dec. 9 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. More dates will be announced for 2013.
