University of Florida Performing Arts will host four events in September, beginning with Sister Hazel’s return to the Phillips Center on Sept. 21.
The Gainesville band’s smash hit All For You spent 40 weeks on the Billboard charts, pushing them into the national spotlight. They haven’t slowed down since, and their album Release recently became the band’s biggest Billboard hit to date.
Also performing in September is the premiere Scottish traditional band, the Tannahill Weavers (Sept. 27), regarded as one of the most versatile groups on the Celtic scene, and Sphinx Virtuosi with Catalyst Quartet (Sept. 30 at University Auditorium) – a conductorless ensemble of soloists comprised of the top alumni of the Sphinx Competition for young Black and Latino string players.
UFPA’s Specticast premiere on Sept. 28 will feature the concert film: The Rolling Stones: Some Girls, Live in Texas ’78. Seating for this event is general admission. Specticast projects pre-recorded productions on the Phillips Center Main Stage in HD quality.
“The Specticast pre-recorded productions offer us the opportunity to bring events to Gainesville that otherwise would not be possible due to cost and accessibility of the product,” UFPA director Michael Blachly said. “With a new HD projector the Phillips Center Main Stage will bring operas and other productions to life in a wonderful, qualitative way.”
Ticket prices range from $15-45 for reserved seating, depending on the show.
UF student tickets are on sale and available for September performances at a price of $10.
