What's in store for 2012-13 at the Palladium and its sister theaters, the Tarkington and the Studio Theatre? 

The Classical series will include visits from the BBC Concert Orchestra with Keith Lockhart, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, The Leipzig Quartet and more.

The Songbook series will bring in Johnny Mathis, Natalie Cole, recent Kennedy Center honoree Barbara Cook (who I just saw last week in New York at Feinstein's--more on that show later), and more.

Country and bluegrass means LeAnn Rimes, Martina McBride, Dailey & Vincent, and more.

The Jazz series hosts B.B. King, John Pizzarelli, and Chick Corea/Gary Burton.

There are only three shows so far in the Dance series: The return of Savion Glover, Momix, and Stars of the Russian Ballet.

And then there's The B-52s, Sheryl Crow, Amy Grant, Natalie McMaster, Coach Bob Knight (no, he's not singing), Mummenschanz, and Kathleen Battle.

What one concert (besides Barbara Cook) am I most excited about? Put me down for opera great Renee Fleming, coming to the Palladium in February.

Your thoughts?

  • Wow!
    Can't wait for B.B. King. Very happy Jazz & Blues gigs are being booked.
  • Me too
    Barbara Cook will be a highlight for me too. The original cast album of The Music Man has always been one of my favorites. I bought her more recent Carnegie Hall concert album and am amazed how good she sounds. It’s so great that she’s reestablished a career after so many down years.

    Lou, while you were in New York you missed the wonderful performance of Bobby McFerrin. What the man does with his voice plus the percussive effects from his body are positively amazing. Also the way he bravely chose individuals from the audience to perform with him was such fun. The fact that one person he chose said "we know Lean on Me", to which he responded "We?". Turned out there were members of a choir from Port Huron, Michigan who did a wonderful job on the song. The last person he chose during question/answer time was a professional dancer from Chicago. He was invited on stage and did a short but impressive dance to a Bobby McFerrin acapella improvisation. It was a surprising but satisfying way to end the evening.
