Community Concert Association announces next season’s lineup
Six outstanding concerts are in store for members of our 2013-14 Community Concert Association season, according to Floyd Cloutier, president.
As a bonus, new subscribers will be admitted to the 42Five concert on Tuesday free of charge, he stated.
Opening the season on Sept. 17 is “Exile,” classic rockers turned country rebels, with six No. 1 hits on the country charts. From “Kiss You All Over,” to “She’s Too Good To Be True, they’re riding the country wave, infusing their pop and southern rock sounds into their newly recharged lyrics.
Back by popular demand, “Pavlo,” the Greek God of the Guitar, performs on Oct. 22. A sizzling composer, guitarist, and singer with a unique style and Mediterranean flavor, he is blazing a quick path toward international superstardom with television and film credits, commissioned works, and an invitation to perform for His Royal Highness, Prince Charles.
Also in the fall is the “Goddess of Soul,” Jane L. Powell, on Nov. 29. She has a voice that bursts with spiritual energy and uplifts audiences to a musical dreamland packed with sass and zeal. She has worked with or opened for Lou Rawls, B.J. Thomas, The Crusaders, and “stole the night from a legend when she opened for Ray Charles.”
Incorporating an arsenal of audio-visual inventions, AudioBody’s performance on Feb. 20, 2014, is an electronic journey into an unknown realm of seriously spectacular entertainment. The 17-year veteran physical comedy team added a masterful blend of humorous acts and futuristic sounds and has been featured on several TV shows.
Classic rock ’n roll, that’s what The Diamonds are bringing on March 25, 2014. Their instant million-selling hit, “Little Darlin,” has sold approximately 20 million copies to date, and they have learned the durability of classic rock and roll music is as much about the future as it is about the past. They have performed in Europe, South America and Asia.
Closing out the season will be “An Evening with Hal Linden,” backed by a seven-piece band, and spicing up the stage with a dose of nostalgia and a dash of legendary star quality. Performing in more than 20 Broadway and off-Broadway productions, the incomparable Linden has starred on the hit TV series Barney Miller, for which he earned multiple Golden Globe and Emmy nominations. He is truly a star with staying power.
All concerts are performed in the Schreier Theatre of the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium and begin at 7:30 p.m. Season subscriptions are $45 for adults, and $10 for students, K-12. Prices are very reasonable due to large donor and patron contributions. Patron Plan subscriptions for Bronze level are $150 for four tickets; Silver level, $350 for 10 tickets; and Gold level, $600 for 20 tickets.
“Businesses, corporations, organizations, and other groups can utilize any of the patron plans, while supporting quality live entertainment on stage for our area,” stated Cloutier.
