Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.
Ticket Prices: $42 / $37 / $32 / $27

The Tallis Scholars were founded in 1973 by their director, Peter Phillips. Through their recordings and concert performances (Royal Albert Hall, Lincoln Center, the Sistine Chapel) they have established themselves as the leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music throughout the world. Phillips has worked with the ensemble to create, through good tuning and blend, the purity and clarity of sound which he feels best serve the Renaissance repertoire, allowing every detail of the musical lines to be heard. It is the resulting beauty of sound for which The Tallis Scholars have become so widely renowned, earning wide acclaim for their supple clarity and tone of their vocal lines.

Ronnie Milsap Hits & Christmas

Saturday, December 13, 2014 at 8 p.m.

Ticket Prices: $59 / $49 / $44 / $37

Ronnie Milsap ranks as the pre-eminent country soul singer of his generation. He also represents much more than any two-word definition can convey: a humble, overtly friendly fellow with a talent as vast and multi-dimensional as the American South. Milsap provided country music with one of its most important voices, as the genre was moving beyond its rural roots into the mainstream of modern entertainment. Country music couldn’t have found a man more suited to lead the charge. Even as he mastered Beethoven and Mozart, his heart belonged to hardcore country and rhythm-and-blues — music he heard beamed from Nashville radio stations. Those earthy sounds about life and love provided a young, impoverished blind boy with a connection to a world beyond the harsh reality of his daily existence.

Music & Theatre Hall
Ticket Price: $47

Zap Mama and Antibalas bring the Afrobeat world-music sound to the Ferguson Center in a concert like you’ve never heard or felt before! Known to her fans as Zap Mama, Marie Daulne began as the leader and founder of a female vocal polyphonic quintet that succeeded worldwide and has since evolved into a variety of configurations approaching Urban, Jazz, American Soul and Afro-Pop music styles. Using the organic tone of the human voice, Zap Mama has developed her sound for over 20 years, inspiring diverse audiences around the world.

Antibalas was originally conceived by founder and baritone saxophonist Martín Perna. It started as a cross between the New York City, Latin-funk grooves of Eddie Palmieri, Harvey Averne and Mandrill, and the jams of the late Fela Kuti. Over time the music gradually shifted toward the Fela side of the equation. They are routinely considered Afrobeat’s premier second-wave ensemble.

In college basketball, the name Bob Knight is synonymous with greatness and winning. Coach Knight is among the youngest in his field to have won 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700 and 800 career games. He was the first men’s college basketball coach to have reached 900 wins and until recently was the only member of this exclusive club. Bob Knight is his own man, one who represents high principles, expectations and demands for his players, his coaching staff and, most of all, himself. No other coach can cite NCAA and NIT championships and Olympic and Pan American gold medals among his achievements, and only two have won more than the three national championships he has. In 1991 he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, and in 2011 was voted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.

We got talked into it…” Since then, the reaction to Creedence Clearwater Revisited’s concerts has been astounding, and driven in part by a generation of kids who, as Cosmo says, “weren’t even born when the music came out.”
