    18/01/2020 Duración: 21min

    Arts Weekly—a podcast about Arts and Entertainment in Augusta GA and the River Region. This week Brenda Durant took a minute to reflect on the life of Ellis Johnson. Mr. Johnson died this week leaving a legacy of support for the arts especially the Jessye Norman School who named their Gallery after Ellis and his wife Ann. Ellis was on the Board of the Arts Council when I was hired in 1997, he was president a few years later, hosting the staff for regular lunches to catch up on what we were working on and where we were going. I loved when he would talk about himself- the premier tenor in Augusta in the 50’s and 60’s later supporting the Augusta Chorale, The Arts Council, The Jessye Norman School for the Arts and numerous arts events- always escorted by his elegant wife. Coco Rubio shared a photo of Ann and Ellis walking into the Miller Theatre on opening night; they were first thru the doors. The perfect couple to be the first to greet this downtown jewel. In the next segments I covered events for this
