This weekend at the Center has a little less going on than last weekend, but we still have some really fun concerts.
Tonight we’re kicking it off with the Chandler Symphony, flamenco guitarist Chis Burton Jacome and flautist Frank Darmiento who will be playing music that reflects the culture of the Southwest and Arizona over the past 100 years. The concert is free and first come, first served. Get here early because we usually pack the house.
The “packed house” theme is going strong with out other show this weekend with Lorrie Morgan and Pam Tillis. I love listening to these ladies, and so does everyone else in Phoenix. We don’t have very many seats left, so if you’re interested in seeing them in concert tomorrow night, call our box office at 480-782-2680 and we’ll see what we can do for you.
Its one of those weekends that just seem to work here. We have good shows that people care about, and that we care about, and that makes it seem less like work and more like fun.
For me, at least.
I love showing rather than telling, and two of our shows this weekend can express themselves better than I could.
One of our patrons summed up Alpin Hong perfectly.
We’re happy that you’re happy.
And then, there was Ballroom with A Twist. I was expecting the dancers, but I didn’t know about the appearances of David Hernandez and Gina Glocksen, so I was surprised.
I took a bunch of video, but that would just take up space on the blog, so I’ve created a playlist here.
I wasn’t able to grab any video from Wyatt Earp, but I loved the show. Getting to hear about the early days of Arizona (especially as an Arizona native) made my day. If anyone has any pictures they’d like to share, throw them my way.
Phew, three shows, and that was just a weekend recap, so I’ll make this next one short. On Saturday night we’re hosting Lorrie Morgan and Pam Tillis as a part of their Grits and Glamour tour. I had not heard of Lorrie or Pam until last spring, and I’m ashamed of that. I like country as much as the next person, but there is just something about these two ladies that I can really connect to, and I enjoy listening to their music.
You can find out how to get tickets, as well as watch a video of them, here.
