STAFF REPORT :::

The Griffin Area Concert Association has announced its lineup of performers for the 2017-18 concert season.

The upcoming season will consist of four concerts featuring internationally acclaimed performers in a variety of genres. All concerts will be held at the Griffin Auditorium located at 234 E. Taylor Street.

Back by popular demand and leading off the season will be the dynamic “Greek God of the Guitar,” Pavlo. “Pavlo’s initial performance in 2008 was so outstanding that many of our patrons have asked us to bring Pavlo and his group back to Griffin”, said Art Hammond, president of GACA.

A true world artist, Pavlo brings audiences to their feet with his unique style and Mediterranean flavor. Joined on Greek bouzouki, bass and percussion, Pavlo blends Greek, flamenco, Latin and Balkan flavors. A true international guitar sensation. Pavlo takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 10.

The 96-piece all wind symphonic orchestra Tara Winds takes the stage on Sunday, Nov. 12, for a special Sunday matinee at 4 p.m.

Recognized nationwide as one of the finest adult ensembles of its kind, Tara Winds has performed at prestigious venues and festivals throughout the U.S. Composed of musicians from throughout Georgia, Tara Winds provides a concert experience for the whole family.

On Jan. 23, 2018, the dynamic bluegrass group Monroe Crossing will return to the Griffin stage. This bluegrass supergroup dazzles audiences with its electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel and heartfelt originals.

Their airtight harmonies, razor sharp arrangements and on-stage rapport make them audience favorites across the United States and Canada. The Monroe Crossing concert begins at 7:30 p.m.

Closing out the season at 7:30 p.m. April 19, 2018, will be Broadway and TV superstar Kevin Spirtas.

This 30-year veteran of performing is celebrated as one of the true, rare, tour-de-force performers in entertainment who has trilled audiences in every medium. Most recognized around the world for his portrayal of Dr. Craig Wesley for 7 years on NBC’s daytime drama Days of Our Lives, Spirtas has appeared around the world in film, television and on stage.

“Performing familiar Broadway songs, Kevin’s high-energy performance and dazzling personality will capture the hearts of the audience,” Hammond said.

Season tickets for all four concerts are just $50 if purchased by Sept. 1, 2017, and $60 after that date. Individual concert prices remain just $20, and all children under the age of 18 are admitted free with a paid adult.
