Pippin

PIPPIN is a high-flying, death-defying hit Broadway musical! Full of extraordinary acrobatics, wondrous magical feats and soaring songs from the composer of Wicked, PIPPIN will lift you up and leave you smiling. This unforgettable new production is the winner of four 2013 Tony Awards® including Best Musical Revival. Hailed as "an eye-popping, jaw-dropping extravaganza" (NY1), it's unlike anything you have ever seen! Come experience PIPPIN, one young man's journey to be extraordinary.

Calmus

A perfect blend of sound, precision and wit – this classical a capella group is stunning.  All graduates of Leipzig‘s renowned St. Thomas Church Choir School, Calmus offers the unique combination of a pure soprano voice with four male voices ranging from bass to countertenor.  The seamless blend of these five voices lends itself to an almost limitless range of music. Calmus conveys everything it performs with great respect and also with a sense of joy in singing that is obvious to the listener.

Uncommon Sense

People on the Autism spectrum are our brothers, fathers, sisters and mothers.  Integrated into our schools, workplaces, churches and families they confront us with a new and broader understanding of what is “normal” or typical.  For the first time the Gallagher Bluedorn has commissioned and is premiering an original play created by the Tectonic Theater Project, Uncommon Sense, a project rooted in Iowa stories about Iowa families and communities affected by life on the spectrum.  This three-year collaboration began with interviews of Iowans and captures our stories and the people of Iowa in the narrative of the play.  Uncommon Sense introduces us to special members of our Iowa family and does so with a sense of humor, love and understanding.

Theatre is a bridge builder, a powerful tool in the creation of empathy and a support for our understanding of the lives and truths of others.  Come and join us on this journey of inclusion and community.  Help us create a place of acceptance and understanding. 

What’s a commission?

A commissioning is a coming together of organizations and artists for shared work.  In its simplest form, it is a financial investment with the express purpose of creating new art – in this case a new play that explores the nature and breadth of being human.  This commissioning was born from an earlier collaboration with Tectonic on a residency and presentation of their award-winning play “The Laramie Project.” Because of Gallagher Bluedorn’s investment, the Tectonic Theater Project will tour the nation next year building community and understanding.  One of the things that excites us the most about this work and this tour is that it will be channeling Iowa stories, and Iowa voices, as well as voices from around the world through the work.

Support for Uncommon Sense provided by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Kenny G Live In Concert

Kenny G plays a mix of his greatest hits and your Christmas favorites. Since the early ‘80s, his combination of unparalleled instrumental chops and indelible melodies has resulted in sales of more than 75 million records worldwide (45 million in the U.S. alone) and more than a dozen climbs to the top of Billboard’s contemporary jazz chart. Ring the holiday season in with the astounding playing ability of Kenny G in this entertaining show.

Sandi Patty

As one of the most highly acclaimed performers of our time, Sandi Patty is simply known as The Voice. With a vocal talent that was too big for any one genre, Sandi sang as a soloist with the great American orchestras, mastered the American song book and sang Broadway standards to rave reviews.  In her heart though, Sandi remained a Christian singer and this last Christmas tour offers us the opportunity to hear her in all her glory. 

Canadian Brass

Classic Christmas – Your favorite Christmas music played like you’ve never heard it.

If you said Canadian Brass represented the "gold standard" among brass quintets, you'd be right on the mark. Aside from performing on 24K gold-plated instruments, the group, led by its avuncular tuba master (and sole original member) Chuck Daellenbach, essentially put the idea of the brass quintet on the map. Renowned for genre-bending versatility, joyous performances and gentle humor, the award-winning Brass is almost single-handedly responsible for elevating the art of the brass quintet to what it is today. 

Foreigner The Hits Unplugged

Foreigner is not an 80s band. The music of Foreigner spans generations, their hits continue to be embedded in film, prime time television and video games. Hits like Hot BloodedCold As Ice and Juke Box Hero have driven Foreigner’s modern-day renaissance, solidifying their status as one of the most popular acts in the world. So dig out those concert tees, download the flickering lighter app and join us for Foreigner The Hits Unplugged!
