Judy Collins*
Chris Thile*
Oct 3 – 8pm
Nov 20 – 8pm
Know for her crystal clear voice and iconic renditions of “Both
Sides Now” and “Send in the Clowns,” Judy Collins has inspired
five decades of audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable
songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to
social activism. Fifty albums later, she remains a vigorous writer and performer of songs that create hope and healing and
speak to the heart. A Special Event
Chris Thile, of Punch Brothers, is a mandolin virtuoso, composer
and vocalist whose lyrical fusion of traditional bluegrass with
other musical styles is giving rise to a new genre of contemporary music. A recent MacArthur “genius grant” recipient, Thile’s
broad outlook encompasses progressive bluegrass, classical,
rock and jazz and often transcends the borders of traditional
musical genres. On this new solo program, he draws from his
new Bach recording, while also exploring his own compositions
and contemporary music. A Special Event
Adam Trent: The Futurist
Oct 17 – 8pm
Star of the Broadway hit show - The Illusionists - and the #1
selling magic show in the world, Adam blends dancing and singing to his own original pop music with innovative stage illusions
and charming wit to create an experience that is part magic
show, part concert and part stand-up comedy.

brothers and their father, have been tearing up churches and
festivals alike for over two decades. The Texas-based gospel
powerhouse are modern practitioners of a long musical tradition,
infusing joyful and reverent songs with vintage soul, funk and
“The three-generation gospel collective’s high-energy performances are the living embodiment of the indelible connection
between the black church and its rock and soul offspring”
-- Austin Chronicle.

Love and the Renaissance
Aquila Theatre presents
Romeo and Juliet
Jan 24 — 3pm
Set against a backdrop of warring households,
Romeo and Juliet are the very archetype of tragic young
lovers. It’s a story of romance, murder and tragedy, as
famous as any that has graced the stage.
The New Yorker called Aquila’s innovative style and dynamic physical approach to Shakespeare’s most famous
and heart-breaking play ”Beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect.”
More Connected Campus events will be
announced in the coming months. This
series of events is a collaborative project
of the Wingate University Departments of
International Studies, History & Politics,
WiRE Read, English, Shakespeare Recitation Competition, Music, Lyceum, Student
Ministries and The Batte.
CANTUS: The Four Loves
Jan 29 – 8pm
Love has been the inspiration for artistic expression since the
dawn of time. It is such a complex idea that the Greeks broke it
down into four kinds: romantic, familial, friendly and unconditional
love. Including works by Francis Poulenc, Eric Whitacre, Edvard
Grieg, Ludwig van Beethoven, Bobby McFerrin, and Ysaye Barnwell, The Four Loves looks at this unquantifiable emotion from all
sides. Cantus, called “intellectually, emotionally and musically
rich” (Star Tribune), is a nine-member men’s vocal ensemble
known worldwide for its trademark warmth and blend and its
engaging performances.
