They share a special relationship with the Wheeling Symphony since they have returned to play with the orchestra twice since their first performance early in their career. Hear, see and be swept up in the force of their contagious energy as they play everything from bluegrass and folk tunes to mash-ups of hits by the Beatles, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and others. “Simply put, they’re a knockout! Time for Three is the future of music.” – Sir Simon Rattle.
John Mellencamp Resumes Critically Acclaimed Plain Spoken Tour Carlene Carter Returns to Support All Dates New York, NY (Jan. 25, 2016) – “A triumphant, career-spanning show (Hollywood Reporter)”, “superb performance…still full of fiery defiance (Boston Globe)” and “as a performer, he delivered on every level (Dallas Morning News)” are just a few of the vivid descriptions attributed to John Mellencamp’s 80-date Plain Spoken Tour of 2015. On the strength of critical praise and high fan demand, the multiple Grammy Award winner and Rock and Roll hall of famer is set to resume the renowned tour with support artist Carlene Carter starting on April 1 at the Brady Theater in Tulsa, OK. The tour will see Mellencamp hitting 13 all-new cities and performing songs from 2015’s Plain Spoken, his 22nd studio album and one of the most lauded in his 40-year career, as well as his catalog of fan favorites. Praised as “stark, soul-baring (Billboard)” and drawing comparison to Bob Dylan’s Grammy-winning album ‘Blood on the Tracks,’ Plain Spoken draws on timely themes including political and social injustice, further cementing Mellencamp’s status as “arguably the most important roots rocker of his generation (Billboard).” Carlene Carter, daughter of June Carter Cash, opens the show each evening.
“It was the end of the world…” Willkommen to Berlin! American writer, Cliff Bradshaw, arrives in Berlin in 1929, on the eve of a new year and a new regime in Germany. Centered in the deliciously raunchy and seedy nightclub, the Kit Kat Klub, Cabaret follows Cliff and the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles, navigating their relationship, their dreams and their limitations in a world permeated by politics, economics, and sexuality. It also follows the doomed romance between boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her suitor, Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor, which cannot seem to survive in the impending colder, terrifying Germany. The Emcee oversees the action as the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub as well as the parallel journey as Nazi Germany rises to power. Based on John Van Druten’s play I Am a Camera and Christopher Isherwood’s Goodbye to Berlin, with lyrics by Fred Ebb and music by John Kander and book by Joe Masteroff. Cabaret is intended for mature audiences. The Performing Arts Series is made possible in part by the generous financial support of the WJU Student Government Association.
Celtic Woman is an all-female Irish musical ensemble conceived and created by David Kavanagh, Sharon Browne and David Downes, a former musical director of the Irish stage show Riverdance. In 2004, he recruited five Irish female musicians who had not previously performed together: vocalists Chloë Agnew, Órla Fallon, Lisa Kelly and Méav Ní Mhaolchatha, and fiddler Máiréad Nesbitt, and shaped them into the first line-up of the group that he named "Celtic Woman." Downes chose a repertoire that ranged from traditional Celtic tunes to modern songs.
