We’re Wrapping Up 2016 With Musical Treats


Before the holiday season gets into full swing, treat yourself to an evening of wonderful music and storytelling. Join us this Saturday, November 19, at 8 PM, as guitarist Chase Padgett presents the journeys of six musicians as only he can portray them. Hailed by the Austin Post as “A great piece of musical performance as good as anything Austin City Limits had to offer,” 6 Guitars is a pitch perfect blend of music, comedy and characters. Chase Padgett delivers a virtuosic performance as he deftly alternates between blues, jazz, rock, classical, folk and country.

You also can take a walk down memory lane with We’ve Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered, on Saturday, Deccarpentersremembered-vertember 10. Bring the entire family out for an evening of pop music that celebrates the music of one of the most successful recording acts of all time.  Led by Michelle Berting Brett and accompanied by a live, seven-piece Nashville band, this show re-creates the Carpenters’ original sound. So sit back, close your eyes and remember the music of the Carpenters.
