My reporting last week on the Veer Local Music Awards missed a few choice categories, ones that were included in the print edition of the Feb. 15 edition of the alternative paper. Most significant was the Ferguson Center's victory in the Best Performing Arts Center category.
Veer readers voted the Ferguson Center in Newport News over the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach, Chrysler Hall in Norfolk, the Attucks Theatre in Norfolk and the American Theatre in Hampton.
Rounding out the list of winners were:
Best Jazz -- Justin Kauflin
Best R&B -- House and Sinnett
Best Classical Music Performance -- Virginia Symphony Orchestra with Joshua Bell, Tchaikovsky's violin concerto
Best Instrument Retailer -- Alpha Music
