After the semester ends over on the Maryville College campus, that doesn’t mean the newly opened Clayton Center for the Arts will be shuttered for the summer. In addition to the Acoustic Concert Series that’ll be held in conjunction with Steve Kaufman’s Acoustic Kamps, the venue’s website shows that a “Friday Night Music Series” will begin next month. No word yet on ticket prices; but the shows will take place at 8 p.m. in the facility’s Lambert Recital Hall. Here’s what’s on the calendar so far:
- May 21: classical guitarist Ben Bolt
- May 28: Will Tate and 6ix Mile Express (mucho-talented; saw the group perform at the Grand Opening Gala)
- June 4: jazz by Barry Roseman and Friends
- June 11: jazz by the Bill Swann Trio
In addition, Clayton Center Marketing Director John Cherry told me recently, the venue will roll out its 2010-2011 lineup of entertainment in the next few weeks. Stay tuned.
