Vanessa Williams Concert on the Green

Photographs of Vanessa Williams in Concert
New Haven, Connecticut July 30, 2005

Vanessa Williams performed as part of Market New Haven's Free Concerts on the Green Saturday July 30th. We arrived at 5:30 PM to find the Green packed with people - all anxious to see Vanessa Williams perform in concert. Edie & I managed to shoehorn ourselves into a small available space about 50 yards from the stage. It was a good vantage point to take photographs from. We were elbow to elbow with the people next to us who were quite gracious in making a little room for our lawn chairs. They had come to the Green at 1:30 in the afternoon to stake out their space. I didn't make any friends with the people behind us when I started setting up my tripod & camera. I assured them I wouldn't be in their way - and wasn't.
Jeremy Pelt well known and talented jazz trumpeter opened the concert at about 6:30 pm. Some time after 8 Vanessa Williams began. Vanessa Williams is a platinum-selling pop and R&B star. She has appeared on Broadway and in films. She is one talented performer and I looked forward to not only listening to her perform but also the opportunity to photograph a real concert.

She didn't disappoint! The concert was just awesome. She performed many selections from the 70's and 80's and the crowd loved it. I of course enjoyed listening and getting some good images of a bona fide star.
