KCPA 2007-08 schedule full of entertainment opportunities
It's never too early to plan for fall, and patrons of the Kirtland Center for the Performing Arts will be able to do exactly that with the recent release of the 2007-08 KCPA schedule.
KCPA Director Don Wray said the 2007-08 season will feature many well-known performers and a variety of entertainment genres that are sure to provide several opportunities for avid concert-goers.
The season begins with Triple Gold - the Three Tenors of Pop on Sept. 15. The group features the combined talents of Jim Yester of the Association, Bruce Belland of The Four Preps and David Sommerville of The Diamonds. These original lead singers reprise their classics with hit titles of "Cherish," "Never My Love," "Windy," "Along Comes Mary," "26 Miles," "Big Man," "Lazy Summer Night," "Down By The Station," "Little Darlin," "The Stroll," "Silhouettes," "Why Do Fools Fall In Love," and many more.
Other performances include: the acappella singing group, InPulse, on Oct. 20; "An Evening with Jeff Daniels" on Nov. 17; The Osmond Brothers on Dec. 14; from Chicago, the Second City Touring Company will be showcasing their improvisational talents on Jan. 26; Latin gypsy jazz guitarist John Jorgenson and his outstanding quintet on Feb. 16; The Glengarry Bhoys will carry the Irish roots tradition to Kirtland on March 8; Suzanne LaRusch, who portrays legendary comedic performer Lucille Ball, presents "A Tribute to Lucy" on April 19; and Chasin' Steel, featuring bluegrass music, on May 10.
The finale of the 2007-08 season will feature The Gene Krupa Orchestra on June 7. The big band sound of the Gene Krupa Orchestra began in the 1930s and continues today under the direction of percussionist Michael Berkowitz. Popular with dancers and listeners, the Gene Krupa Orchestra is now winning over audiences of a new generation.
According to Wray, series ticket prices remain the same as last year at $195 for the season. Individual and "wild card" pricing is available. Child care is provided at the Children's Learning Center, located just a few hundred yards away from the performing arts center, during the night of each performance.
"Many donor incentives have been added to this year's opportunities, as well as business and employer group pricing," Wray added.
