(September 2009) – A holiday performance by the world-famous Vienna Boys Choir, a wide-ranging trio of musical acts and a one-person theatrical performance highlight the 2009-10 Hanover College Guest Artist Series, which marks its 57th consecutive year bringing outstanding performers to the local community.
The Philadelphia-based instrumental rock group Saxon Shore will open the series Friday, Sept. 25, with a performance in Parker Auditorium. The band’s expansive music has been featured on television shows “CSI: Miami” and HBO’s “24/7” as well as commercials for The Kentucky Derby, Sony HD and played during Major League Baseball’s all star game.
The Indiana University String Academy’s Violin Virtuosi will perform Thursday, Oct. 22, in Fitzgibbon Recital Hall, Lynn Center for Fine Arts. This select group of violinists has performed the works of such masters as Bach, Brahms and Vivaldi, as well as contemporary compositions, in the U.S., France, Spain, Italy, Sweden and Japan.
The Vienna Boys Choir will perform a once-in-a-lifetime holiday concert Monday, Nov. 23, in Parker Auditorium. The internationally-beloved choir, with a continuous history dating to 1498, features 100 choristers between the ages of 10 and 14.
The one-man theatrical production, “Runt of the Litter,” will be staged Tuesday, Jan. 19, in Parker Auditorium. Written and performed by Bo Eason, this is the story of Eason’s career as a defensive back for the Houston Oilers in the 1980s. He played safety while his brother, Tony Eason, was the quarterback who led New England to the Super Bowl in 1986. Eason will present a special, free performance for local school groups Jan. 20 at 10 a.m.
The series finale features Christian musical group, Addison Road, Thursday, March 18, in Parker Auditorium. The group has combined a unique pop-rock sound with a mission to show others how to find their hope and identity in God. Addison Road’s self-titled debut album, released in March, earned a 2009 Dove Award nomination for best new artist behind the chart success of the songs “All That Matters” and “Sticking With You.”
Season subscriptions are available for the Guest Artist Series until Sept. 24 at considerable savings over the cost of single-session tickets. Patrons can subscribe to the entire five-event series, plus all season subscribers also receive a complimentary season pass to the Hanover College Theatre’s four main-stage productions. Subscriptions cost $65 for adults and $50 for seniors (65 and over).
