Following last year’s inaugural season, the Jefferson College Performing Arts and Cultural Enrichment, or PACE, event series will return for 2013-14 with numerous presentations including comedy, film, jazz, art, dance, classical music, and magic/illusion.
Sponsored by the college’s Cultural Diversity Committee, the upcoming PACE series will include a variety of guest artists such as the United States Air Force Shades of Blue Jazz Ensemble, Brandon Ridenour of the Canadian Brass, master illusionist Keith Jozsef, the Funky Butt Brass Band, the Wee Trio, and a Spring Jazz Showcase featuring Christian McBride and Peter Martin. The series will also include several student-community performances such as plays, band and choir concerts, theatre performances, and art exhibits.
The first events include The Improv Shop – September 5; USAF Shades of Blue Jazz Ensemble – September 15; The Wee Trio – September 24; and Fall Play “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” – October 10-13.
A PACE season pass, which includes admission to the entire season of events, is available for $25 per person general admission and $15 for students and senior citizens. Season passes can be purchased via cash, check or credit card at the cashier’s office in the Student Center on the Hillsboro campus. There are no refunds for unused cards/performances. Those who purchase a season pass will save $12-35 compared to single event admission for the entire series.
Individual event advance tickets are also available for $5 general admission, $2 students and senior citizens. All individual advance ticket purchases must be done in person at the cashier’s office Monday-Thursday from 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. and Friday from 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
