Now in its eleventh year, the Paramount Performing Arts Series brings professional artists from around the globe directly to Historic Downtown Goldsboro. The 2011-2012 Performing Arts Series was named the “Best Downtown Event Series” by the North Carolina Main Street Center.
In 1955, Herb Reed, David Lynch, Paul Robi, Zola Taylor and Tony Williams crashed through the racial divide in the music industry paving the way for The Platters to become the first African-American vocal group to reach international superstardom!
In keeping with the founder’s wishes, The Platters continue to evolve and entertain music fans of all ages worldwide. With a solid foundation of multiple hit songs under their belts, thanks to the founding members, The Platters today, Wayne Miller, Adele Galinda “DD” Grey Martin, Lance Bernard Bryant and Kenny Williams continue to captivate audiences under the baton of Musical Director Michael Larson.
