Nancy James on stage at The Carnegie


On Thursday, June 12, 2014 at 7:30pm, the 2013-14 Carnegie in Concert season closes with the return of Cincinnati music and television legend Nancy James to the intimate stage of the Otto M. Budig Theatre.

Nancy James: The Voices in My Head features perennial Carnegie favorite and local treasure Nancy James reminiscing in song and story on her four decade career. Nancy James will take patrons down memory lane as she recalls her experiences beginning with CCM to the Bob Braun Show and beyond, along with a little help from her friends.

Broadway star and Tony nominee Pamela Myers will join James on stage along with legendary songstress Dixie Karas. Several other friends, including Jack Rouse, former executive of the Taft Broadcasting Company and founder of Jack Rouse Associates; Dick Murgatroyd, longtime director of The Bob Braun Show turned former Kentucky politician; and Nick Clooney, host of the Nick Clooney show and local news anchor; will share their sentiments via video over the course of the evening.

Through her career Nancy James won an Emmy for her work on The Bob Braun Show on WLWT from 1974-1983. Younger audiences may recognize her voice from extensive voice over work including commercials for the Cincinnati Zoo, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, Remke/Biggs, and many other local companies. Today James continues to perform around the Tri-State for weddings, special events and with area bands.

Tickets can be purchased through The Carnegie Box Office, open Tuesday through Friday 12pm – 5pm, in person or by phone at (859) 957-1940. Tickets are also available online at www.thecarnegie.com.
