VINCENNES, Ind. - Now in its 67th season, the Vincennes University Alumni Community Series continues its commitment to provide quality entertainment for patrons and friends at the Red Skelton Performing Arts Center on the Vincennes Campus. 

Produced by the VU Alumni and Foundation Office, the lineup for the 2018-19 Community Series will feature six outstanding acts that will entertain and create lasting memories.

Kicking off the season on September 7 will be “Divas3,” three powerhouse vocalists presenting the best of the divas that they admire.  They will feature the songs of Celine Dion, Cher, Aretha Franklin and many others.

On October 5 “The Texas Tenors” will return for their fourth visit to the Skelton Center.  These “America’s Got Talent” alumni will feature their new PBS show “Rise.”  Audiences just love these three talented performers not only for their voices, but also for their electric personalities.

“Live and Let Die, A Tribute to Sir Paul McCartney,” will be featured on November 5.  Singer and recording artist Tony Kishman presents a full multimedia experience celebrating the music of Paul McCartney. 

A celebration of the Christmas season will be featured on November 30 with a “Christmas with the Celts.”  This rollicking show is filled with music and dancing in the Celtic tradition.

The March 8 show, “In the Mood,” is a large-scale 1940’s musical revue featuring a full orchestra.  You don’t want to miss this lively show that is full of nostalgia.

“The Bellamy Brothers” will appear on April 5.  This American pop and country duo has been on the charts for four decades with hits “Let Your Love Flow” and “If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me.”

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. EDT with the exception of the “The Texas Tenors” which is at 8:00 p.m.
