GREAT MUSIC &
The Meherrin River Arts Council’s goals have been two-fold: create a series that showcases a variety of entertainment styles and genres while keeping tickets affordable to all segments of the population. In fulfilling this mission, an annual concert series of four performances began in 1979. Over the past three decades, the MRAC has produced over 150 performances. Audiences have enjoyed everything from the opera and ballet to plays and symphonic concerts. National and international stars have brought the sounds of jazz, country, contemporary and popular music to the region.
SEASON tickets are going fast!
After a long time away we’re all eager to start enjoying live entertainment again. We hope you will join us this year in what promised to be an outstanding series!
