A 13-time Grammy winner and Billboard Century Award recipient, Emmylou Harris' contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years. She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists' recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.
Harris is known as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive singing. Admired through her career for her talent as an artist and song connoisseur, Harris shook up country radio in the 1970s, and established herself as the premiere songwriter of a generation selling more than 15 million records and garnering 13 Grammy Awards (this year she and Rodney Crowell won the Grammy for "Best Americana album"), three CMA Awards, and two Americana Awards.
Singer, songwriter, and actor, Paul Anka became famous in the late 1950s, 60s, and 70s with hit songs like "Diana," "Lonely Boy," and "Put Your Head on My Shoulder." In addition to his illustrious singing career, Anka wrote the theme music for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, Tom Jones' "She's a Lady," the English lyrics for Frank Sinatra's signature song "My Way," and Michael Jackson's posthumous hit "This Is It." Anka is the only artist in history to have a record on Billboard's Top 50 chart for seven consecutive decades, and has cemented his places as one of the most prolific and versatile singer/songwriters of any generation.
The personal and the political are indistinguishable in American playwright George Brant's gripping one-woman play about a hot-rod fighter pilot whose unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky. Reassigned to fly remote-controlled drones in Afghanistan from a windowless, air-conditioned trailer near Vegas, "The Pilot" hunts terrorists by day and goes home to her family at night. But what happens when the boundaries blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols? Suspenseful and searing, beautiful and blistering,Brant's multi-award-winning new play explodes our assumptions about modern warfare and unapologetically tells a story of our times.
Jean-Claude Carrière, one of the greatest storytellers of our time, delivers one of grandest epics ever written: The Mahabharata.
Accompanied by a musician and a dancer, Carrière adopts the role of a traveling bard to tell the story to a new generation of listeners, reprising the style in which it would have been performed in ancient India as an oral epic. Set in an ancient, mythic time, the narrative centers on the war for power between two families: the Pandava, five children of the gods, and the Kaurava, the hundred sons of a king whose legitimacy is in question. This pared-down, magical 90-minute retelling of the classic tale is based on Carrière's prior collaboration on The Mahabharata with iconic director Peter Brook which resulted in an acclaimed 9-hour theatrical event as well as a 5-hour film version. Bringing decades of knowledge from working with the text and tracing its roots in India, Carrière provides a deeply personal and unique interpretation of this large epic.

Fresh off a dazzling performance with the legendary Boston Pops that has gripped millions of public television viewers across the nation, Frangoulis will be performing songs from several of his albums, an emotional repertoire of inspirational songs in five languages.
