The Persuasions concert postponed

The Persuasions concert postponed

Out of respect for the recent passing of Central Lakes College (CLC) Theatre instructor Dennis Lamberson, the Persuasions concert originally scheduled for Saturday has been postponed.

Cultural Arts Series producer Patrick Spradlin made the decision following Lamberson’s death. Lamberson died Jan. 8.

“There is a memorial service being held in Dennis’ memory on Friday the 18th,” said Spradlin. “I just felt that the timing for this concert wasn’t right. The group, Persuasions, agreed, and so we’re looking at alternate dates for the concert.”

Ticket holders will have the option of exchanging their tickets for another Cultural Arts Series event this season, or taking a voucher for a ticket for the rescheduled Persuasions concert. Season ticket holders will be given tickets for a newly-added event on March 1.

Questions and concerns can be addressed to the CLC Theatre Box Office at 855-8199 or The Box Office staff will begin processing exchange beginning Thursday.
