PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION



Million Dollar Quartet



Inspired by the electrifying true story from December 4, 1956, the Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet brings to life one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll jam sessions in history. This auspicious twist of fate brought together four young musicians – Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley, for a one-and-only-time recording session at the legendary Sun Records in Memphis. “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Hound Dog,” “I Walk the Line,” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On,” are just a few of the unforgettable numbers familiar to every generation. Come experience what the Memphis Press-Scimitar dubbed “a barrel-house of fun.”




Tickets:

$45, $40 for Seniors and Students



Plan to arrive early to help us kick-off our 30th Anniversary Season on the Marcon Platz (located between Schaeffer Auditorium and the Sharadin Arts buildings).

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION



Rio Mira



Taking its name from the river that runs between their two countries, Rio Mira specializes in crafting contemporary music using traditional sounds. Fronted by Ecuadorian singer Karla Kanora and Colombian marimba master Esteban Copete, Rio Mira is an exciting collaboration that has become a socially conscious symbol of Afro-Pacific identity. The story of marimba is closely intertwined with rebel slaves, known as maroons, who made the region their home from the early 16th century onward. Come discover why UNESCO declared the marimba music of South Pacific Colombia and Esmeraldas Province, Ecuador to be an Intangible Cultural Heritage.



Tickets:

$25, $22 for Seniors and Students



This performance is part of the Celebrate Marimba Festival. See the Center for Mallet Percussion Research at Kutztown University for more information.



This engagement of Rio Mira is funded through Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America, a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.

Arturo Sandoval



Protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Arturo Sandoval is one of the most dynamic live performers. Among his many accolades, he has won 10 Grammys®, 6 Billboards®, an Emmy®, and he is also recipient of the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom. His virtuosic technical ability on the trumpet, and playing Latin jazz, is not all that he’s known for. Sandoval is just as renowned for his straight ahead jazz, classical, lyrically improvised ballads on the piano, and taking to the microphone to sing a pop standard. The diversity of his music, through his compositions and playing, is what many recognize Arturo Sandoval for being one of the most brilliant, multifaceted and renowned musicians of our time.
