The Cultural Foundation of Harrison County announces that tickets are now on sale for the fourth season of its Grand Performances series. The 2019-2020 season promises not to disappoint, with an exciting and eclectic mix of popular performances.
The season launches on Sunday, October 6, 2019, with a performance by American rock and soul artist Maggie Rose. American Songwriter called Rose a “soulful show stopper.” She has shared the stage with Kelly Clarkson, Sheryl Crow, Old Crow Medicine Show, and recently, Rose has been on tour, opening for Heart and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
The 2019-2020 season of Grand Performances will also feature Broadway star and Clarksburg native Kirsten Wyatt, with a brand-new show, “Broadway Goes to the Movies,” on Sunday, December 1, 2019; the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra performs the score to “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” live as the classic film plays on the big screen on Sunday, March 29, 2020; and British singer-songwriter, dusky voiced Lucie Silvas, performs on Saturday, May 9, 2020.
All 2019-2020 season performances will take place at the Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center and will begin at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6 p.m.
Season tickets, as well as individual tickets, for all Grand Performances events are now on sale. Season tickets for all four events are $75 (plus taxes and fees), a savings over individual ticket pricing, essentially providing the season ticket holder admission to four shows for the price of three. Individual show tickets are also available for $25 (plus taxes and fees).
By purchasing a ticket, patrons are also taking an important step to support the arts in Harrison County. The Grand Performances series helps to fund The Cultural Foundation’s Community Arts Grants, which are awarded to arts organizations and art programs in the county.
Each year, The Cultural Foundation reviews available entertainment and strives to select the best quality entertainment for the community. Performances also include educational components for local students, when possible.
The Grand Performances series is funded by a generous bequest from Barbara B. Highland, who was a significant supporter of the arts. In addition to funding Grand Performances, the Barbara B. Highland Fund for the Arts also sponsors the Wheeling Symphony performance held around the 4th of July at the Clarksburg Amphitheater and other public performances.
