The Vredenburg Performing Series for 2014-15 – brought to you by the Lucas County Arts Council

October 16, 2014 – “SIMPLY THREE”

Hailed by the Boston Philharmonic, “They’ve got what it takes” says it all for this new and invigorating string trio. Their captivating style has created a renewed excitement for instrumental music. Their innovative programming includes original songs by Adele, Coldplay, Gotye, and Puccini. In addition to fusing classical and pop music, they dazzle their audiences with high-energy fiddle music, music of the opera, and original compositions.

December 4, 2014 – “Ball in the House”
7:00 p.m. Johnson Auditorium

Following in the path of classic harmony groups like Boyz II Men, The Temptations, and Take 6, while incorporating the pop and neo-soul influence of artists like Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, and Pharrell Williams, the five member band, Ball in the House, will move audiences and make the audiences move. Individual tickets at the door $15.

February 12, 2015 – “Cinderella”

“Cinderella” is a perfect show for children and families. Gioachino Rossini’s version of the classic fairy tale is a vocal and comedic romp! A wise magician takes the place of the fairy godmother and the girl’s father rants and raves instead of a wicked stepmother, but the nasty stepsisters, Prince Charming,. and a glass slipper prove beyond all question that this is the fairy tale we all know and love. And when it is combined with hilarious characters and situations and set to some of Rossini’s finest music, it becomes comic opera at its most exhilarating best.

April 16, 2015 – “Ballyhood Foxtrot Orchestra”

The Ballyhood Foxtrot Orchestra is a vintage ensemble dedicated to recreating the jazz and popular music of the 1910’s and 1920’s. The eight-piece ensemble employs an instrumentation that enables the group to perform a wide variety of musical genres from the period, including foxtrots, Dixieland jazz, blues, novelty songs, waltzes, tangos, cabaret, patriotic songs, and light classical music.
