Upcoming Events

October 18

Dream Theater performs their widely acclaimed double concept album “The Astonishing” in immersive and interactive settings for a unique and unparalleled live experience.

“The Astonishing” debuted atop Billboard’s Rock and Hard Rock album charts, marking the group’s third No. 1 Hard Rock album following “Black Clouds & Silver Linings” and 2013’s self-titled LP. “Even for a group that has blazed new trails consistently, there’s never been anything to compare to ‘The Astonishing’, the full-blown rock-opera, jumbo-size concept album. Put simply, the new release lives up to its title in every way imaginable,” exclaimed Rolling Stone.

Brian O'Donovan

December 20

Brian O’Donovan’s A Celtic Sojourn has thrilled radio audiences for twenty-eight years. For the last fourteen, the Christmas-time live version of the show has drawn on Celtic, Pagan, and Christian traditions to celebrate the music of the season. First launched in 2003, A Christmas Celtic Sojourn reflects the compelling and diverse offerings of the weekly national radio program.

With legends of music, song, and dance from the Celtic world and beyond poised to take the stage together, this year’s show again promises to build its reputation as one of the chestnuts of live holiday music in the region.
