For almost 65 years the Wheaton College Artist Series has been proud and privileged to bring exceptional artists to our local stage for your enjoyment. This year, we are excited to present one beautifully focused five-event season; just five great concerts in a single subscription package with an outstanding array of artists.
As a subscriber, you will also get to choose one BONUS event: Love Classical? Choose the Fischoff Gold Medal Winners, the best of today’s emerging chamber musicians. Love Inspirational? Choose the inimitable Ken Medema. Love singing? Choose a public masterclass led by the legendary soprano Elly Ameling. Love surprises? Choose Fledgefest featuring young singers and songwriters like Tyler Sjöström. Want to attend them all? BONUS events are only $20!
With this new format comes substantial savings. Our new five-concert subscription with a bonus concert is $35 less than the FULL subscription last season. If you were a FLEX subscriber last season, you pay no more than $15 extra to attend two more concerts in 2014-15. Subscribers also receive the Dining & Discount card, with discounts at more than 30 local restaurants and businesses.
Fledge is the stage in a young bird's life when the feathers and wing muscles are sufficiently developed for flight. It's also a perfect description for these young artists who have developed strong local followings for their original music and are ready to fly.
