A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN - October 10-29, 2017
Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became an iconic rock ‘n’ roll queen. Her unmistakable voice, laced with raw emotion and Southern Comfort, made her the must-see “rock mama” from Monterey to Woodstock. Fueled by a live band and psychedelic performances of her unforgettable songs like “Piece of my Heart,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” and “Cry Baby,” A Night with Janis Joplin is a powerful dramatic celebration of Janis, and her inspirations—including Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith.

JOSHUA BELL, violin - November 1, 2017
Joshua Bell is the nation’s number one violinist and one of music’s true superstars, capturing the public’s attention as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, orchestra leader, and conductor. You can’t miss him on his numerous Live From Lincoln Center specials and you’ve heard him on movie soundtracks. And since his musical outlook encompasses progressive bluegrass, rock, jazz, and every other genre you can think of, your music library is bound to include at least one of his more than 40 album releases.
