Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek announces full schedule for 2010-11 winter season
The Vilar Performing Arts Center's (VPAC) 13th season will soon get under way and tickets for the entire winter 2010-11 lineup -- including shows by comedian Lewis Black, songwriter Randy Newman and local favorites Maceo Parker and Keller Williams -- go on sale at 11 a.m., MST, on Monday, Nov. 1.
“Our upcoming winter season features many exciting, well-known artists, but also some incredible hidden gems,” said VPAC Executive Director Kris Sabel. “I always say some of the best performances at the venue are the ones where you knew nothing about the artist before seeing them live and then are blown away. These shows are like my ‘hidden gems.'”
Sabel's “hidden gems” include R&B/Soul artist James Hunter on Feb. 4 as well as Christian McBride & Inside Straight on March 23.
“Hunter's music will appeal to audiences both young and old -- think Robert Cray vocals with Sam Cooke styling. This music is fun and easy to listen to,” said Sabel. “Christian McBride is one of the hottest jazz bass players in the world today. You may know him from his tenure as Sting's bass player, but he's played with all the greats. With his band Inside Straight his concert will make even the most uptight among us cool and swinging.”
Additional highlights from the VPAC's upcoming winter season include: Grammy and Emmy-winning singer/songwriter Randy Newman on March 12. The Colorado Symphony Orchestra and Chorus performing Mozart's Requiem on Jan. 31. Critically-acclaimed stand-up comedian Lewis Black on March 30. "America's Ballet Company of Firsts," Joffrey Ballet on March 15. One-man instrumental phenom Keller Williams on Jan. 13. The funky soulful sounds of Maceo Parker on Feb. 18 and fun for the whole family with the Flying Karamazov Brothers on Dec. 30.
