Andrew Peterson has used his creativity as a songwriter, novelist, filmmaker, and non-profit organizer to turn fans towards eternal things. His poetic and theologically rich music is honest, sometimes painful, ever restless, ever hopeful, and ever human. Peterson’s latest album is Resurrection Letters, Vol. 1. This event is co-sponsored by SGA and the Milligan Arts Council. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The event is FREE and open to the public, but tickets are required.

The Milligan Music Department will present a short, family-friendly concert that showcases the great hit songs of the 50s, 60s, and 70s, from iconic artists such as the Beach Boys, Elvis, and The Beatles. Featured songs include “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You,” “Eleanor Rigby,” and “Good Vibrations,” performed by the Milligan’s Concert Choir, Women’s Chorale, Heritage, Heard Mentality, and Orchestra.
The Milligan College Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Kellie Brown, will present a fall concert featuring an eclectic array of string works from the Italian Baroque master Vivaldi to the classics of the British Invasion. Milligan guitar professor James West will perform Vivaldi’s Guitar Concerto in C Major, and the orchestra will showcase the timeless tunes of The Beatles, including “Yesterday” and “Eleanor Rigby.” The highlight of the evening will be a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of the iconic American composer Leonard Bernstein, which will coincide with concerts that have been dedicated to him throughout the world in 2018. The orchestra will perform excerpts from his concert works, such as “Simple Song,” “Cakewalk,” and “Danzon.” Bernstein’s beloved music from West Side Story will bring excitement through the vivacious rhythms and tunes of “Mamba,” “America,” and “Tonight.” Milligan vocal professors Dr. Carrie Klofach and Dr. Noah DeLong will join the orchestra to sing two of Bernstein’s most beautiful songs: “One Hand, One Heart” from West Side Story and “Make Our Garden Grow” from Candide.
