Maritzaida was born and raised in the small coastal town of Isabela where she developed a deep love for the arts and her native country of Puerto Rico. Maritzaida's professional music career began in 2012 while singing for U.S. Air Force Bands and touring internationally alongside her husband and guitarist, Aaron Weibe.

Her debut albums, Boleros Clásicos Volumen Uno and Volumen Dos, resurrect the classic style of traditional bolero music with the authenticity of past generations, bringing it to a global audience in the modern age. As a Puerto Rican singer who learned this music in the home of her abuelos in Isabela, Maritzaida delivers a stunning performance that showcases her vocal prowess and emotional depth.

Through her soulful interpretations and heartfelt delivery, Maritzaida takes listeners on a journey through the rich musical heritage of Latin America. Her exquisite voice, accompanied by lush arrangements and an ensemble of fine instrumentalists including a guitar, cuatro puertorriqueño, and double bass, transports listeners to a bygone era of romance and longing.

Greg Hyslop was born in West Virginia but has been a resident of Greensboro since 1957 and has been a long-standing member of the piedmont jazz community. He graduated from Berklee College of Music (Boston) in 1977 and returned to his hometown to settle down and raise a family. A recording artist in his own right, for this performance, he will be joined by Matt Kosma on the saxophone/flute, and Lowell Ringel on the double bass.

While masks are still recommended, they are not required, and social distancing is encouraged when possible.

The Crown at the Carolina, located on the third floor, started its life as the 1927 vaudeville theatre’s original sign shop, churning out iconic posters and ads for early touring shows and movies. After spending the decades that followed as a storage area, the space underwent its first phase of renovation to open to the public as The Crown in September 2013.

Now a high-tech, flexible performance space, The Crown is celebrated for its delicate acoustics, inviting ambiance, intimate setting, as well as its accessibility to the Triad’s performing arts community. Warm, exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and huge lead-paned windows (original to the building) bring the room its natural, historic, up-cycled “cool” factor.
