Performing Arts Center Stage to Come Alive as Bravo! Concert Series Tickets Go on Sale Sept. 7

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – After last year’s Bravo! Concert Series was canceled by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s 2021-2022 Bravo! Concert Series invites music lovers to share in the return of live concert performance with an in-person schedule that kicks off with the Pablo Ziegler Chamber Quartet on Oct. 1. The Gloria and Robert A. Furgason Bravo! Concert Series for the Performing Arts lineup also includes four incredible acts in spring 2022. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, Sept. 7 at this link.

“Through partnerships with others on campus, we’re able to present top-flight musicians from across the country and from Europe,” Performing Arts Center Director Jim Moore said.

While there are new safety measures in place in the PAC, including enhanced cleaning, socially distanced seating, and face covering for PAC staff, Moore said he is grateful to have the opportunity to get back to the business of offering world-class music on the PAC’s world-class stage. 

“The only way to truly appreciate and understand music is to participate in person,” Moore said. “It’s exhilarating. Leonard Bernstein said, ‘Music can name the unnamable and communicate the unknowable.’ Only with an in-person experience does that experience happen.”

Moore also said that some of the Bravo acts are either sharing the stage with local musicians or lending their talents to local music students.

“The TAMU-CC Music Department is working with us on presenting Boston Brass, one of finest brass groups in the country. In addition to their performance, they’ll be working with Islander and high school students in the area,” Moore said. “In collaboration with the Corpus Christi Chorale, we’re presenting Calmus, an acapella quintet from Leipzig, Germany.”

Visitors to the PAC might notice some building improvements. Moore said the facility team used downtime as a result of the pandemic to enhance the lobby area.

“We’ve added a new and larger video monitor and acoustic tiles throughout the lobby so ambient noise is reduced. It makes having a conversation less strained. The lobby and backstage flooring has been completely redone, and we’ve installed new light fixtures with LED lighting in the lobby and concert hall, making it easier to read programs,” he said. “All of our lobby furniture has also been reupholstered.”

Reserved seat ticket prices range from $20-35 for general admission and $15-25 for seniors. TAMU-CC student tickets are $7 (with valid SandDollar$ ID). First responders and healthcare workers with valid ID receive a 50% discount for tickets purchased at the box office on the day of the performance.

Pablo Ziegler Chamber Quartet, Friday, Oct. 1, 7:30 p.m.

The Bravo Concert Series will kick off on Oct. 1 with Pablo Ziegler/RADIOTANGO.

The Guardian states that he “plays straight from the beating, bleeding heart of nuevo tango, with its Argentinian mix of swagger and sweetness.”
