RSO Classics: Celebrating International Peace Day featuring Bella Hristova Date: Saturday September 20, 2014

Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

Panufnik, a Polish composer who defected to Britain, dedicated his Procession for Peace “to peace-loving people of every race and religion, of every political and philosophical creed.” Prokofiev wrote his dreamy first violin concerto during World War I, and its peaceful serenity stands in sharp contrast to that War’s destruction. Danish composer Nielsen wrote his Fourth Symphony against the backdrop of that war, giving it the subtitle “The Inextinguishable”, referring to the power of the human will to live.

Time: 8:00 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Singer-songwriter Kip Moore combines a raw and rustic voice with compelling lyrics of honesty to create a unique sound that's simultaneously hypnotic and edgy. His voice is weathered by life's detours and disappointments and strengthened by his dreams and determination. His music is infused with relentless intensity, both of passion and frustration.

Moore shot out of the gate with the best selling debut country album of 2012, UP ALL NIGHT, which spawned the PLATINUM, two week chart-topping hit "Somethin' 'Bout A Truck," followed by two more No. one singles, "Beer Money" and "Hey Pretty Girl."  Moore has relentlessly toured the country coast to coast with Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert, Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum and Tim McGraw amid selling out his own headlining shows, often in just minutes.

NiteLite Promotions is proud to present BILL COSBY “FAR FROM FINISHED TOUR” live at Coronado Performing Arts Center on Friday, October 3rd at 8:00PM. Tickets are now on sale!

One of America’s most beloved comedians of all time, Bill Cosby has captivated generations of fans with his comedy routines, iconic albums and best-selling books such as Fatherhood.  His comedy transcends age, gender and cultural barriers. Cosby broke television’s racial barrier with I Spy, becoming the first African American to costar on a television series while winning three consecutive Emmys.  He created and produced the Emmy-winning cartoon Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, which began airing in the 1970s and was made into a film in 2004. Perhaps Cosby’s greatest contribution to American entertainment and culture is The Cosby Show, which dominated the #1 spot for years. Cosby’s first television special in 30 years, Far From Finished, premiered on Comedy Central last fall.  As always, Cosby crafts stories around topics such as marriage and parenting with his singular point of view and renowned sense of humor. In Cosby’s current best seller, I Didn’t Ask to Be Born, But I’m Glad I Was, he talks about the Bible, being a grandfather and his first love in his humorous and insightful manner. Cosby has received the Kennedy Center Honors, the Presidential Medal of Freedom (America’s highest civilian honor), the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor and the Marian Anderson Award.

Tickets are available at the Coronado box office, www.ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets or by calling 815-968-0595.

Comedian RON WHITE brings the Nutcracker Tour to the Coronado Performing Arts Center in Rockford, October 18 at 8 p.m.

 Ron “Tater Salad” White first rose to fame as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour phenomenon, but now as a chart-topping Grammy-nominated comedian and a feature film actor, Ron White has established himself as a star in his own right. White has always been a classic storyteller. His stories relay tales from his real life, ranging from growing up in a small town in Texas to sharing stories of his daily life to becoming one of the most successful comedians in America. All 4 of his comedy albums charted #1 on the BillboardTM Comedy Charts. He has sold over 14 million albums (solo and with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour), been nominated for two Grammys, and over the past 9 years (since 2004) been one of the top three grossing stand up comedians on tour in America.

Ron has always been a storyteller; relaying stories from the time he was a boy growing up in a small town in the middle of
Texas oil country to selling windows for a living in Arlington to performing in sold-out theaters and arenas as a headlining comedian all across the country. For two decades he lived the life of a struggling comedian bouncing around to comedy clubs and driving to gigs in his beat-up Nissan pickup truck to becoming a successful middle act club comic. He paid his dues.

VIP Packages are available.

New episodes of Long Island Medium began to air August 3rd on TLC.

Since she cannot “turn off” this gift, messages from departed loved ones can come through at any time. The local car mechanic, manicurist or cashier at the bagel shop may find themselves receiving a spontaneous reading from Theresa as she goes about her day. The unique challenges that her special abilities create for her husband of 22 years, Larry, and her two children, aged 20 and 24, and how they cope, are also a main theme on the show.

Theresa’s second book titled “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” is scheduled to be released September 30th, 2014. Her first book titled “There’s More to Life Than This” debuted at #2 on the NY Times Best Seller List in the fall of 2013.

Theresa has been a practicing medium for 10 years and is a certified medium with the Forever-Family Foundation, an organization dedicated to connecting science with the afterlife. She helps individuals find closure by connecting them with their departed loved ones. For Theresa, this is not just her job... this is her life. Learn more about Theresa at theresacaputo.com.
