NSU - Galaxy of Stars

NSU Center for the Performing Arts
Oct. 14-March 31, 7:30 p.m.

The Galaxy of Stars Series is part of Northeastern State University’s Sequoyah Institute. Each year the performances selected are chosen to expose the Northeastern community to not only the entertainment provided by fine arts, but also the education associated with it.

The series promotes experience and understating of cultural enrichment beyond that found in the classroom and those who attend are able to actively or passively participate through the national and international artist’s performances.

Oct. 14 – Tulsa Ballet II, the pre-professional ensemble of Tulsa Ballet Theatre, will grace the stage with a combination of classical and contemporary pieces.

Oct. 29 – The U.S. Army Jazz Ambassadors is the official touring big band of the U.S. Army. The 19-member ensemble formed in 1969 and has received great acclaim at home and abroad performing America’s greatest original art form — jazz.

Dec. 5 – Kathy Mattea, country music sensation, will perform. The twice-named Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year and Grammy award winner is both a singer and songwriter. She is known for bringing elements of folk, bluegrass, gospel and intimacy to her music. She will perform a thoughtful blend of old favorites, along with new songs from her holiday albums “Joy for Christmas” and “Good News.”

Jan. 27 – Ryan and Ryan, a dynamic father-son piano duo will take the stage. The pair blend classic and contemporary music into an enthralling concert experience. From Rachmaninoff to Gershwin to Billy Joel, Donald and Barron Ryan combine their talents to create a dazzling blend of old and new schools.

Feb. 23 – Montana Repertory Theatre provides professional theatre to our own and neighboring Western states. Their mission is to tell the great stories of our world to enlighten, develop and celebrate the human spirit in an ever-expanding community.

March 31 – Junior Brown will also be part of this year’s lineup. He is known for his unique voice, songwriting skills and most unique double necked “Guit-Steel.” Brown invented the “Guit-Steel”, the instrument consolidating standard and steel guitars allows him to switch mid-song between the two while singing.

There are educational outreaches accompanied by each of the performances to allow for those who are interested to delve a little deeper. Beyond the Stage outreach events offer educational workshops, master classes and lectures. Learning LIVE outreach events offer daytime performances to area schools with accompanying curriculum guide resources to be used in the classroom.
