Don't miss your chance to see some of the best musical acts in the country during a hit-filled second half of the 2017-18 season at the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts.
“We are only about halfway through our 17-18 season, and it’s already shaping up to be one of our most memorable yet,” said
Peter Colombatto, marketing director for the School of Arts, Media, and Communications. “Kenny Loggins, Penn & Teller, and Bob Newhart all performed to sold-out crowds, and there is exciting entertainment still ahead: Wynonna & The Big Noise and Broadway Live! to the Irish Tenors,
Paul Anka, and the Glenn Miller Orchestra. Tickets for all of our events are on sale now!”
The fall season concluded with the Colors of Christmas concert on Dec. 16, featuring a set list of holiday favorites performed by R&B luminaries Jody Watley, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr., Peabo Bryson, and Ruben Studdard.
Country music’s Wynonna Judd will be in concert at 8 p.m. on Jan. 27. She rose to super stardom in the ‘80s in the mother-daughter act The Judds and has been a mainstay in country music since. Now, she is back with her new band, The Big Noise. It will perform some of her older favorites and songs from the band’s new album.
Broadway LIVE! will perform at 8 p.m. on Feb. 24. This show brings together acclaimed Broadway performers to perform songs from Guys and Dolls, The Sound of Music, West Side Story, A Chorus Line, Fiddler on the Roof, Wicked, Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera, and more.
The Irish Tenors will help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at 8 p.m. on March 17. The trio, consisting of Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan, debuted on PBS in 1999 and have performed thousands of shows since, lending their powerful voices to the classic Irish tunes and to a selection of other classics as well.
Paul Anka has enjoyed a 60-year career in music with decade-spanning hits like “Put Your Head on My Shoulder,“ "(You’re) Having My Baby" and many more. He will bring his crowd-pleasing show at 8 p.m. on May 12.
The season wraps up at 8 p.m. on May 27 with The world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, which returns Lindenwood Theater stage. The 18-member ensemble is possibly the best-known big band in the world. It continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements and some more modern selections performed in the Miller style and sound.
