Welcome, We are delighted you are here! If this past year has taught us anything, it is how vital connection, community, and creativity are in everyday life. The Center is eternally grateful for the outpouring of support from patrons, our donor family, corporations, foundations, and grants during the pandemic. Because of this generosity, we were able to present limited capacity concerts, where 45 artists stepped on stage for their first performances since the shutdown. It was an honor to be able to cultivate joy through shared experiences in the arts during such a difficult time.

Jill O’Neill Executive Director

This season is packed with incredibly talented artists eager to get back on stage and perform for you. We have returning favorites such as the unforgettable a cappella sounds of Naturally 7, Sinatra stylings of Michael Feinstein, breathtaking classics by the Vienna Boys Choir, and the biggest "little orchestra," Pink Martini, joined by China Forbes. Many world-renowned artists will make their Northern Michigan debut this season. In July, comedy fans should be sure to experience the hilarious family friendly Ryan Hamilton; the elegant, multifaceted Vanessa Williams graces the stage with a powerful vocal performance; and Chicago-born Grammy Award-winning jazz artist Kurt Elling brings his unmatched talent. In August, the stage transforms into the Grand Ole Opry for a Centerproduced musical, Always...Patsy Cline, with a Broadway caliber cast. Looking to the fall, we welcome the popular country duo Thompson Square and the legendary B.B. King Blues Band joined by Claudette King and The Voice's Michael Lee. 

Kathy Oswald Board Chair

Michael M. Kaiser Artistic Director

With something for everyone, whatever inspires you this season, we hope you experience joy and connection. The Center could not continue to carry out its mission without the unwavering support of our patrons, donors, volunteers, board and committee members, and staff – thank you all. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the event. 231.439.2610
