JONESBORO – Arkansas State University’s Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Drive, announces the lineup for its 2018-19 Riceland Distinguished Performance Series.
Themed "Americana & More," this year's series will offer a broad variety of outstanding entertainment, beginning in late August.
In 2017-18, Fowler Center recorded one of the best years in its 18-year history, attaining a 119 percent boost in ticket sales over the previous season. The ticket sales performance was the third best in the history of the visual and performing arts center.
“We were fortunate to bring such outstanding talent to the Fowler Center last year,” said Michael Bowman, who served as Fowler Center director during that time. “We really appreciate the support from the community who came out to our shows last season.”
The 2018-19 Fowler Center Series will emphasize variety and feature nationally recognized established artists along with up-and-coming performers from across several genres.
-- M-Pact, an acapella group, Thursday, Dec. 6. Imagine the smooth soul of Sam Smith, the percussive power of Stomp, the funk and groove of Bruno Mars, the sophisticated harmonies of Take 6, and the brass bite of the Michael Bublé Big Band . . . All created by the human voice alone. Hailed as "one of the best pop-jazz vocal groups in the world" by the San Francisco Chronicle, M-Pact is respected worldwide as a trailblazer in the realm of vocal music. The group will present a holiday concert at A-State.
