destination and we thank you for your continued friendship and support. Our season kicks off with two performances of the brand new Broadway national tour of CATS. For the first time ever, a Broadway touring company will be using the Gallo Center to tech and rehearse their exciting new production before it hits the road and our audiences will be the first to see it. Downtown Modesto will be full of felines for two weeks in September! In addition to the very best of Broadway, this special anniversary season marks the return of some of the most popular names in our fifteen-year history, including George Lopez, Kristin Chenoweth and Itzhak Perlman, PLUS a long list of artists making their Gallo Center debuts, among them Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, Belinda Carlisle and Black Violin. Dance is back in a big way with five of the world’s finest dance companies, including BODYTRAFFIC, Complexions and Pilobolus celebrating their 50th Anniversary. We’re also proud to continue our new collaboration with Central West Ballet by offering free Balcony Talks before every dance performance. Reaffirming our commitment to supporting local artists, our free summertime Brown Bag Concert Series at the Modesto Rotary Music Garden is also returning with an expanded lineup of great local talent!

PICKS! Every season, a few hidden gems emerge that take patrons by surprise with their charm, creativity, and unconventionality.

them—naturally—Chad’s Picks. These innovative, soul-stirring performances are intended to inspire you to take a chance and think outside the box. You might surprise yourself, but you definitely won’t be disappointed.

Los Angeles-based, Grammy-winning Mexican-American rock band La Santa Cecilia draws inspiration from all over the world, utilizing Pan-American rhythms including cumbia, bossa-nova, rumba, bolero, tango, R&B, jazz and klezmer music. Named after the patron saint of music, La Santa Cecilia sings with a captivating voice about love, loss, and everyday struggles in both English and Spanish. The band has become the voice of a new bicultural generation in the U.S. and Mexico, fully immersed in modern music, but always close to their Latin American influences and Mexican heritage.

THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 2023, 7:30 PM TICKETS: $39/49/69/79

Black Violin is led by classically trained string players Wil B. (viola) and Kev Marcus (violin). Joining them onstage are DJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes. The band uses their unique blend of classical and hip-hop music, often described as “classical boom,” to overcome stereotypes and encourage people of all ages, races, and economic backgrounds to join together to break down cultural barriers. Black Violin released their latest studio album, Take the Stairs, in 2019. It dominated a variety of record charts: Classical, Classical Crossover, Top New Artist, Hip Hop and R&B. NPR praised the album and the band, saying “their music will keep classical music alive for the next generation.” Some of their creative collaborations include Kanye West, Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean, Lil Wayne, and Alicia Keys.

Pablo Sáinz-Villegas has been acclaimed by the international press as the successor of Andrés Segovia and an ambassador of Spanish culture in the world. His “virtuosic playing characterized by irresistible exuberance” (The New York Times) makes him one of the most acclaimed soloists by prestigious conductors, orchestras and festivals. He is known for his passionate, emotive and open-hearted playing, whether he is performing at intimate recital halls, or playing to an audience of over 85,000 at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid with beloved tenor Plácido Domingo. Mr. Sáinz-Villegas’s performance will be a solo recital.
