YC opens new performance season

Join Yavapai College Performance Hall this fall and winter as it welcomes a wide range of musicians and performers from the United States and around the world to its stage. This array of musicians and performers promises something special for everyone.

Three unique and diverse performers – Samite, Terrance Simien and Bill Miller – open the season in late September and into October with African beats, Zydeco rhythms, and Native American narratives.

October ends with a bang as Quebec's Cirque Eloize wows audiences with acrobatics and thrills in Nomade.

Popular television star John Davidson kicks off November with an intimate concert of popular favorites, followed that month by the delicate and surprising South American harpist Alfredo Rolando Ortiz.

November excitement continues with Broadway's swashbuckling "The Scarlet Pimpernel" and the zany prop comedy of Carrot Top, who returns to Prescott by popular demand.

The season is only half over as 2002 comes to a close with three holiday-inspired shows – Michael Martin Murphey in a home-spun Cowboy Christmas, the San Diego Ballet and a cast of over 50 local children in Tchaikovsky's classic "The Nutcracker," and "Christmas Time in Ireland 2002" with Tony Kenny and his exciting troupe of Irish entertainers.

Group discounts are available for purchases of 10 or more tickets to each event. The college suggests early purchase of tickets for this season's events. Most seating is reserved unless specified.

Tickets are available in the Community Events Office in the art gallery of the Yavapai Performance Hall, 1100 E. Sheldon St., from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday though Saturday, or at the door prior to each performance. To order tickets by phone, call 776-2033.
