Our “Meet the Artist” series will be taking a break during the holiday season and will continue on Tuesday, January 19. Please join our mailing list to receive updated information.

Join us as we spend time with some of our favorite artists from past seasons.

Each Tuesday at 7 p.m. CST, Tommy Hensel (director of the Fine and Performing Arts Center) will interview a popular artist from a recent season. Get to know more about performers who have shared their talents on our stages.

The live stream on our Facebook page will include about 30 minutes of interview followed by a time for questions posted by you, the viewers. And who knows? You might even get a little bit of spontaneous performance, as well. It’s live, after all, so you never know what’s going to happen.

Each interview will be recorded and made available on our YouTube channel.
