For anyone who fondly recalls the lush pop sounds of 1970s icons Richard and Karen Carpenter, the Gallo Center will present "Yesterday Once More: A Tribute to the Carpenters" on Saturday, February 16, at 8 pm.
Tickets range in price from $15 to $45, and may be purchased online at GalloArts.org, by phone at (209) 338-2100 or at the ticket office, 1000 I Street in downtown Modesto. Groups of 15 people or more receive a 15% discount on ticket prices.
Created by Grammy-nominated musician and producerJim Brickman, who performed at the Gallo Center last November, 'Yesterday Once More' takes is enhanced with behind the scenes stories and anecdotes of the pop culture of the '70s, along with Brickman's arrangements of million-selling Carpenters hits like “We’ve Only Just Begun,” “Rainy Days and Mondays” and "Close To You.” Bringing the show to life are three vocalists, Joanna Jahn, John Trones and Jen Burleigh Bentz, from Broadway's “Mamma Mia!”
"Yesterday Once More: A Tribute to the Carpenters" is sponsored by Twigs & Stems. Boyett Petroleum is the Gallo Center's 2012-2013 Premier Partner.
