Packed Schedule at MPAC This Saturday

As if the Krewe of Barkus this coming Sunday wasn’t enough for a great Valentine’s weekend, there are no less than FOUR events scheduled this Saturday on the MPAC site. 

Don Gabbert, in connection with the Southwest Celtic Music Association, performs his “Irish in Texas Song & Story Workshop”.  Don is a first generation Irish-Texan living in Lubbock.  He is a musician/singer/songwriter known as the “Voice of Texas Celts”.   His performance is at 11:00 in the Gallery and tickets start at $10.  For more information on Don Gabbert, visit his website at Tejas Go Bragh.

McKinney Kammergild, a McKinney-based group that plays historic instruments, performs “Concerto D’amore”  at 8pm in the Gallery.  I can’t seem to find a site for the group although a quick Google shows them having a very active performance schedule, including one in Michigan!  Looks like a treat for the classics-lover.  Tickets start at $6 for children, $11 for adults.

The McKinney Community Band will be playing love songs and romantic tunes in  “Love Notes” at 7:30 in the Courtroom Theatre.  Tickets are free but you can only get them on-line and you do have to have a ticket to guaranty a seat.  Admittance without a ticket will depend on seat availability. For more information on the McKinney Community Band, visit their website here.

And if that wasn’t enough, McKinney Repertory Theatre’s Youth Actors Guild is offering a Valentine’s Champagne Dinner Theatre.  This event is actually being held in the Heard-Craig Hall, just a short jog away from the MPAC, next to the historic First United Methodist Church.  Unfortunately, ticket sales ended for this event on February 5th.  Sorry, I didn’t know about this one until tonight.

For a full list of events scheduled this month, check out the McKinney Performing Arts Center.

Don’t forget that the first public forum to discuss MPAC’s strategic plan is scheduled for February the 20th, next Thursday at 9am and your input is welcome through the link on their site:

If you still haven’t been to an MPAC event, maybe this weekend would be a good time for your first time!
