Steinberg in concert

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. — A limited-seating concert with Amy Steinberg will be held on March 8, 7 p.m., at MCC Sacred Journey, 135 Sugarloaf Rd., 2nd Floor.

Steinberg, a singer, songwriter and storyteller brings a show to audiences that is uplifting, enlightening and humorous with a bit of sass. The main thrust of her work comes from marrying the sacred and profane and fusing the dreamlike nature of spirit with the rooted realness of sexuality and humor. She plays the piano and guitar with her own swingy rhythmic bounce, injecting shades of jazz, rock, hip hop and poetry, all with a theatrical flair.

When not touring, Steinberg serves as musical director at the Spiritual Living Center of Charlotte, which meets on Sundays at the Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte, 650 E. Stonewall St. She also leads the One Love Choir there.

Only 100 seats are available for the evening’s concert, so early purchases are encouraged. Tickets are $15 and may be obtained for cash at the church or through Stella’s Place online at
