Artist Series: Straight No Chaser

Ten crystal clear a capella voices trading the lead and blending for heartbreaking harmonies are the trademark of Straight No Chaser. College friends reuniting 10 years after graduation, Straight No Chaser enjoyed a phenomenal rise with public television specials, long runs at Harrah’s Casino and best-selling albums. SNC’s music runs the gamut from “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” to a medley of Lady Gaga hits.

Artist Series: Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show

There is only one REAL Rat Pack Experience! It’s not until you indulge in Hackett Miller’s critically acclaimed production of “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” that you begin to realize why Sandy Hackett’s own personal connection to these iconic legends has allowed him to tell this story unlike any other producer or performer. Sandy’s father, legendary comedian Buddy Hackett, was the best of friends with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Joey Bishop – and together, they all made history.

Artist Series: Roots and Boots

Whether you know these guys by name or by their songs – you know them. With more than 40 top 10 hits between them, this will be a night of favorites. An intimate show filled with stories and songs…getting to the roots of country music, featuring songs like “John Deere Green,” “Kiss This,” “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful” and so many more.

Join us for a cowboy barbeque at 6 p.m. before the show!

Artist Series: The Best of Jethro Tull performed by Ian Anderson

Fronting Jethro Tull and performing simply under his own name, Ian Anderson has performed in more than 54 countries over 45 years; he is widely considered an icon of the genre and is recognized as the protagonist of the flute in rock music. With more than 60 million albums sold in its career, Tull has been characterized by Anderson’s trademark acoustic textures created with ethnic flutes and whistles together with acoustic guitar and the mandolin family of instruments. His eclectic acoustic performances are also a hit with fans of the progressive genre.

Artist Series: Beatrice Rana

Van Cliburn silver medalist Rana drew attention during the competition for her “intensely personalized music-making” (Dallas Morning News). This performance style, with its intensity and rich interpretation, also earned the Van Cliburn Audience Award, given to the competition’s audience favorite. This remarkable artist delivers a performance that is both “a virtuoso workout and an exercise in far-flung poetic expression” (Washington Times).

In a unique stage setup, the audience will experience chamber music as it's meant to be experienced. On-stage seating will be limited.

Concert talk at 6:45 p.m.

CROW Forum

Danielle McGeough, assistant professor of communication studies, will present "Pots and Purity: Performing the Domestic Goddess in the 19th Century." Faculty, staff, students and the public are welcome.

WCF Symphony Concert featuring UNI's Midwest International Piano Competition winner

An experiment in concertgoing, this program will be revealed at the performance itself. We have a few hints for you, though: a surprise (and surprising) scherzo by up-and-comer Ted Hearne, a major piano concerto with the winner of UNI’s Midwest International Piano Competition and an orchestral classic chosen by you at our April 2014 preview concert (Tchaikovsky 6, Firebird, Shostakovich 10 or Sheherazade).
