Community concert season tickets on sale
A slate of six concerts is on tap for the Morgan City Community Concert Association in 2012-13.
“This will be another fantastic Community Concert season and the membership drive is under way,” secretary and subscription chairman Floyd Cloutier said.
Concert-lovers are invited to join the community concert season, while regular members are reminded to renew. “We truly have a season of broad entertainment with something for everyone,” he said.
The six-concert season will open in September with “Redhead Express,” an American Roots Show with tight family harmonies, hard driving instrumentals, and a ton of fun, featuring country, bluegrass, gospel, even ’50s and ’60s done acoustically.
“Tap” will follow in October, wrapped in dazzling costumes and fueled by a non-stop explosion of rhythmic energy. This cast of eight award-winning dancers and two singers travel over decades of styles from Broadway and Big Band to world music and pop/rock.
November offers “A Far Cry of Boston,” a ground-breaking, self-conducted string orchestra that explores the traditional boundaries of classical music, experimenting with ways it is prepared, performed, and experienced.
Motown lovers won’t want to miss the January concert, “Masters of Motown,” called the most entertaining history lesson every performed. This show authentically reproduces the look, choreography, style and sound made famous by a record label that went on to profoundly influence the history of popular music.
“Ricky Remembered” in March, with Matthew and Gunner Nelson, continue the inspiring story of a most remarkable show business family. By popular demand, they have worked some Rick Nelson classics into their set, in addition to their songs that transcend time.
Closing out the season in May, “4 2 Five,” unlike any musical experience around, recreates an entire instrumental band with nothing but their five voices. Drawing on funk, rock, jazz, and blues, this award-winning a cappella quintet takes you on a musical journey covering familiar favorites from the ’60s to today.
Because of a generous grant, adult season tickets are $45 each, and student season tickets are $10 for elementary, junior high and high school students.
“If you attend just one concert, you have your money’s worth. The rest is just lagniappe,” commented CCA president Marlene Hendrix.
The Bronze Patron plan with four tickets is $150, Silver Patron plan with 10 tickets is $350, and Gold Patron plan of 20 tickets is $600.
Subscription forms may be obtained at Regions Bank on David Drive; Everett Street Gallery at 201 Everett St., downtown Morgan City; or from any CCA board member.
