A Prairie Home Companion announces the return of “Late Night” (8:30 pm) Concerts, “January Jump Start with Garrison Keillor”, three non-broadcast shows following the January 17, 24 and 31st broadcasts at the Fitzgerald Theater.

Heather Masse, Joe Newberry, The Gibson Brothers

Growing up in rural Maine, Heather Masse sang hymns and folk songs around home with her family. Now based in New York, this New England Conservatory of Music alum is a one-third of the Juno Award-winning Canadian trio The Wailin’ Jennys. Lock My Heart, her recording with piano legend Dick Hyman, came out last year on Red House Records.

Missouri native and North Carolina transplant Joe Newberry has played music most of his life. Known for his powerful banjo work, he is also a prizewinning guitarist, fiddler, and singer. He plays with the string band Big Medicine, with Bruce Molsky and Rafe Stefanini as the Jumpsteady Boys, and in a duo with mandolinist Mike Compton. Live, Joe’s 2012 recording with Compton, mines the brother duet music of the 1930s and ’40s.

In the 10 years since the Gibson Brothers, recorded their first album, siblings Eric and Leigh Gibson have been honored with the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year Award — twice! Raised on a dairy farm near Ellenburg Depot, New York, the two started playing an old banjo and guitar their father had. Soon they were performing their music in church, and these days they are tops when it comes to brother duos in bluegrass. Their latest CD is They Called It Music (Compass Records).

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, December 2nd at noon. Tickets are $25.00, $15.00, $10.00 (includes $2.50 facility fee).

John Fullbright and Robbie Fulks

It was Aunt Stella’s banjo that first caught Robbie Fulks attention. He was seven. From there, it was Aunt Mildred’s fiddle, his dad’s guitar, and any other instrument that crossed his path. Before he was out of high school, he was playing local coffeehouses. For more than 30 years, this guitarist/singer/songwriter has called Chicago home. His singular brand of music may be hard to pigeonhole, but across the board his fans agree: once you’ve heard it, you’re hooked. The most recent of his dozen-plus albums is 2013’s Gone Away Backward(Bloodshot Records).

For a small town, Okemah, Oklahoma, has produced some big talent. There’s Woody Guthrie, of course. And now singer-songwriter John Fullbright is making his mark. He was already a favorite at festival campgrounds before he was even out of high school. Then he burst upon the Southwest music scene a few years ago with a live recording called Live at the Blue Door. His debut studio album, From the Ground Up, was released this past May on Blue Dirt Records.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, December 2nd at noon. Tickets are $25.00, $15.00, $10.00 (includes $2.50 facility fee).

2 Cellos
Young Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, together known as 2CELLOS, have achieved sensational success by taking the cello to a new level. Their playing style has broken down the boundaries between different genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. 2CELLOS have no limits when it comes to performing live and are equally as impressive when playing Bach and Vivaldi as they are when rocking out AC/DC.

Aside from their huge online following where they continue to amaze with new YouTube hits, 2CELLOS main focus has always been playing live. In addition to many sold out solo tours (US, Japan, Europe) the duo have also appeared on major TV shows such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show (multiple times), Lopez Tonight, TV Total with Stefan Raab, ABC’s The Bachelor and many others. 2CELLOS were also the first instrumental act to ever perform on the hugely popular TV series GLEE, where they appeared as special guests in the Michael Jackson tribute episode, performing “Smooth Criminal”. The 2CELLOS’ arrangement of the song, which featured Naya Rivera, debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Digital Songs Chart and landed the 2CELLOS’ debut album in the Top 100.

This event is Sold Out.

The precursor to the opera will include a swinging salute to radio legend Fred Waring, “The Man Who Taught America How to Sing,” and other radio choral favorites, all on the home stage of A Prairie Home Companion.

Concert Conversations with composer Jake Heggie at 7 pm on Saturday and 3 pm on Sunday.

Choir of King's College
"I would happily sit in King's College Chapel listening to this choir sing for the rest of my days."
The Times, London

Founded in the fifteenth century, the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge is undoubtedly one of the world’s best known choral groups. While the choir exists primarily to sing the daily services in King’s College Chapel, its worldwide fame and reputation, enhanced by its many recordings, has led to invitations to perform around the globe, and to an extensive international tour schedule. King’s College Choir has been performing abroad since its first overseas invitation in 1936. More recently, tours have taken the Choir to China, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, and other countries in the Far East. On Monday, March 23rd they will be performaing at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

St. Paul's Cathedral Choir of London
There has been a choir of boys and gentlemen at St Paul's Cathedral, London for over nine centuries. The present Cathedral Choir consists of 30 choristers (boy trebles), eight probationers (who will become choristers) and 12 professional adult singers (or Vicars Choral): four altos, four tenors and four basses.

At the very heart of the Choir's being is the ancient monastic tradition of singing daily services.

In recent years the Choir has established itself as one of the major forces in British church music. The size of the choir and its mature, professional tone set it apart from any other comparable group of singers. Outside regular duties in the cathedral the Choir frequently gives concerts and broadcasts and has many notable recordings to its credit. Join them on Tuesday, April 28th at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

Tickets for MPR's Choral Series Package go on sale Thursday, September 11th at noon through the Fitzgerald Theater Box Office. Individual tickets go on sale Thursday, September 18th. Tickets are $42.50, $37.50, and $32.50. A $2.50 Facility Fee will be added to each ticket.
