Jeanne Jolly can sing anything and sing it well, and this week will offer up a pretty great sample of her range. First, Jolly will headline a hometown album-release show Saturday at Raleigh’s Lincoln Theatre to unveil her new disc “A Place to Run” – a very fine Americana-leaning effort featuring ace studio contributions from producer Chris Boerner and those Megafaun boys, Brad and Phil Cook, among others.

Then over the holiday next week, Jolly will demonstrate her conservatory training with appearances as featured soprano soloist on a series of shows by the NC Symphony at Raleigh’s Meymandi Concert Hall – songs from the movie “Frozen” Wednesday night followed by “Thanksgiving Weekend: Holiday Pops” Nov. 27-28. Josh Moore will open Saturday’s Lincoln Theatre show, which costs $15 (lincolntheatre.com for details); and the Symphony gigs are priced at $23-$72 (ncsymphony.org).
