2014-2015 Centre Stage Concert Series
Empress Theatre, Fort Macleod
Saturday, September 27 – 7:30pm
In January of this year, Tim was named top solo/duo act at the prestigious International Blues Challenge in Memphis, ahead of some 250 other worthy musicians. With more than 35 years in the North American roots music business, this highly respected virtuoso has travelled the world sharing his passion and will captivate you with his insight, charm and considerable talent.
Saturday, October 25 – 7:30pm
Appearing with her band, Edmonton Music Awards Female Artist of the Year Chloe Albert presents her finely crafted, thoughtful songs with a magical voice that earned her #1 spot on CKUA’s Most Played List in 2013. A 2014 JUNO Award nominee for her latest album Dream Catcher and a banner year for this emerging Alberta artist, her fresh young style is staking its claim on the Canadian music scene.
Steve Coffey & The Lokels
Saturday, November 15 – 7:30pm
Film maker. Sculptor. Painter. Singer. Songwriter. Friend. Husband. Father. Steve Coffey's bio speaks of a man who feeds his curiosity, asks hard questions and faces his fears. So does his music, in which you're sure to recognise your world. From just up the Number 2 in Vulcan he brings his prairie sensibilities, social conscience and a merry band of talented ruffians.
Thursday, December 18 – 7:30pm
Celebrate the Christmas season with Calgary’s premiere brass quintet the Foothills Brass. Enjoy familiar seasonal favourites with the rich resonance only a brass ensemble can deliver. Joining them for a portion of their show will be an ecumenical local choir assembled specifically for this performance. Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Cowtown Opera Company
Saturday, January 24 – 7:30pm
Western Canada’s newest opera company's performances can sometimes be a little outside the classic operatic box. Fun, cheeky and equipped with remarkable voices the Cowtown Opera Company’s unique interpretations of operatic gems and Broadway musicals promises to have something for everyone.
Little Miss Higgins & The Winnipeg Five
Saturday, March 7 – 7:30pm
Old time country blues with a shot of swing, a twist of honky-tonk and three bags full of sass, Little Miss Higgins & The Winnipeg Five will have the Empress' resident spirits swirling in the aisles. The ensemble's friendly sound evokes thoughts of simpler times while reminding us that these are the good ol' days. Don’t miss this Brooks born 2014 JUNO Award nominee.
