ROCK OF AGES 2011-2012 Brown Mercedes Benz Broadway in Charlottesville Series

Dec 4, 2011 7pm

John Paul Jones Arena
ROCK OF AGES is the "insanely fun" (New York Times) worldwide smash-hit musical that features a raucous mix of 28 eyebrow-scorching tunes including "Don't Stop Believin'," "We Built This City," "The Final Countdown," "Wanted Dead or Alive," "Here I Go Again," "Can't Fight This Feeling," and "I Want To Know What Love Is."

Set in LA's infamous Sunset Strip in 1987, ROCK OF AGES tells the story of Drew, a boy from South Detroit, and Sherrie, a small town girl, both in LA to chase their dreams of making it big and falling in love. ROCK OF AGES takes you back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair!

Flory Jagoda in Concert

Jan 22, 2011 6:30pm

Congregation Beth Israel, 301 East Jefferson, Charlottesville, VA 22902
Flory Jagoda and Susan Gaeta in Concert

Saturday, January 22, Reception in O'Mansky Hall at 6:30 p.m., Concert in Main Sanctuary at 7:00 p.m. CBI Members: $10 Non-Members: $15.

Ticket proceeds will benefit the Flory Jagoda Sephardic Music Fund. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the CBI office.

Flory Jagoda, a 2002-2003 Master Artist in the Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Program, was a 2002 recipient of the National Heritage Award, the highest honor given to a traditional artist in the United States. Susan Gaeta served as her apprentice and is herself a gifted singer and performer.

Flory was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia, a member of the musical Altaras family within the Sephardic Jewish community. Through her grandmother, Jagoda learned songs that had been passed down in her family in the generations since Sephardic Jews were forced into exile from Spain and Portugal in the 15th century. These songs are sung in Ladino, or "Judezmo", the traditional language of the Jews of the Ottoman Empire. Escaping with her parents from the destruction of most of Bosnia's Jewish community during World War II, Flory is now recognized as the "keeper of the flame" of the Sephardic musical tradition in the United States and internationally, as well as for her new compositions and arrangements of traditional Sephardic songs.

Flory has passed this legacy along to her children, musicians themselves, and has worked with many students now performing Ladino music. Together, Flory Jagoda and Susan Gaeta will present an entertaining and enlightening evening of Sephardic song and story.

Please note: Tickets may also be purchased at www.virginiafolklife.org, however, to receive the CBI Members ticket price of $10, you must be a CBI member and the tickets must be purchased in the CBI office.

George Strait Tour with Reba McEntire

Jan 30, 2010 TBA

John Paul Jones Arena
Seventeen-time CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee George Strait will make a tour stop in Charlottesville early next year, and he’s bringing along one very special lady, Reba McEntire. The two will perform in Charlottesville at the John Paul Jones Arena on January 30, 2010.

The superstar acts performed together for the first time in many years for a sold-out crowd at the Cowboy’s Stadium inaugural event in Dallas. The show sold out out in less than an hour.

With 57 number one hits, 33 multi-platinum albums and countless sold-out shows year after year, Strait who holds the record for the most CMA wins and a record 17 CMA Entertainer of the Year nominations, is known for giving fans exactly what they want and expect.

“I can’t wait to get back out there and perform some of my new favorites from Twang along with hits the fans already love,” says Strait. “And with my friend Reba, we will make it a really spectacular night.”

At last year’s CMA Awards, George became the artist with the most CMA Awards in history with Album of the Year for Troubadour and Single of the Year for “I Saw God Today.” He adds 4 nominations this year with nods for “Entertainer of the Year,” “Male Vocalist of the Year,” “Video of the Year” for “Troubadour” and “Vocal Event of the Year” for “Everything But Quits” with LeeAnn Womack.

His platinum-selling Troubadour was named “Best Country Album” at the 51st Grammy Awards and in April, Strait was the fifth artist ever to receive the Academy of Country Music's Artist of the Decade honor. Strait has won 19 Academy of Country Music Awards including "Entertainer of the Year."

One of the most successful female recording artists in history, Reba has sold over 55 million albums worldwide, earned 33 #1 singles and was recently recognized as the biggest female hit-maker in country music history by “Billboard,” “Mediabase” and “Country Aircheck.” She is the winner of 15 American Music Awards, 12 Academy of Country Music Awards, 9 People’s Choice Awards, 7 Country Music Awards and 2 GRAMMY Awards.

Reba’s new album, Keep On Loving You, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart – her first solo studio album to do so. With 11 #1 albums, Reba holds the record as the female artist with the most #1 albums in the history of the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. The superstar also recently scored her third consecutive Top 10 single of 2009, as her new song “Consider Me Gone” jumped into the Top 10 this week on both the Billboard Country Singles and the USA Today/ Country Aircheck Chart powered by Mediabase) charts.
