Songs for a New World @ Milligan College Gregory Center, McGlothlin-Street Theatre
Oct 24 @ 7:30 pm

Songs for a New World is a collection of independent scene-songs that are unified by the theme of choice.

“It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice… or take a stand… or turn around and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Bridges of Madison County), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.” As we hear from the captain of a ship in 1492, to the flag maker who has suffered loss, to a mother deciding to create a new life, or a man choosing to take his basketball future into his own hands and get out of the ghetto, this musical explores faith, love, community, and how ordinary people survive extraordinary circumstances.

Tickets will be available at the door and beginning September 26th online and during selected hours at the box office. Beginning this year, all seats will be reserved. All seats $10.

A Musical Zoo @ Milligan College Seeger Chapel, Mary B. Martin Auditorium
Nov 2 @ 7:30 pm

Milligan OrchestraThe Milligan Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Kellie Brown, will take you on a zoological journey through centuries of great music that has used the amazing animal kingdom as its inspiration.  No matter how “serious” a composer’s output, it seemed that there has always been time to bring their creativity to the task of depicting the animals they loved. Featured repertoire for the program will include the Overture from “The Thieving Magpie” by Rossini, “The Waltzing Cat” by Leroy Anderson, “The Red Pony” by Aaron Copland, and the “Speckled Hen Overture by Hofeldt as well as excerpts from “Carnival of the Animals” by Saint-Saens and Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf.” This program will also include an educational outreach to several elementary schools in our region. Students in these schools will be invited to create art pieces of the animals depicted on the orchestra’s concert. All artwork will be on display in the lobby.
