Rose-Hulman brings diverse array of acts to Hatfield Hall stage

TERRE HAUTE — For more than a decade, Hatfield Hall on the campus of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has been bringing to the Wabash Valley a diverse array of talented performers with its Performing Arts Series. The 2013-14 season includes a jazz prodigy, a slice of Chicago, Grammy winning bluegrass, a cutting-edge multimedia dance extravaganza and a prehistoric petting zoo.

The Mainstage Series begins Sept. 18 with world-renowned dance company, Momix. In Botanica, Momix transports audiences to a fantasy world of color, movement and sound, combining athletic dance, music, outrageous costumes, inventive props and talent to create a captivating multimedia experience.

Called “hip with a wink” by Town & Country, world-renowned guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli takes the Hatfield Hall stage on Oct. 4 with the John Pizzarelli Quartet. Pizzarelli has blended a variety of styles into a distinctive signature sound. His music is a clever convergence of jazz, swing, the American Songbook, pop, bossa nova and more.  

Rhythmic Circus brings its brand of percussive dance to town on Nov. 10 with Feet Don’t Fail Me Now! Backed by a six-piece band and rolling from funk to blues, rock ’n’ roll to salsa, Rhythmic Circus is a sensational theatrical production that blends award-winning dance and unbounded energy into a rollicking good time.

This year’s holiday show at Hatfield Hall brings a special touch of nostalgia when Elisabeth von Trapp and the Carolian Brass present The Sound of Christmas on Dec. 3. Granddaughter of the legendary Maria and Baron von Trapp, whose story inspired “The Sound of Music,” Von Trapp has carried on the legacy of the internationally renowned Trapp Family Singers. Singing professionally since childhood, she has enchanted audiences from European cathedrals to the Kennedy Center.

Classical ballet returns to Hatfield Hall with The Moscow Festival Ballet performing “Swan Lake” on Jan. 8. Tchaikovsky’s musical masterpiece provides the foundation for the story of Odette, a beauty who has been turned into a swan at the hands of an evil sorcerer, and Prince Siegfried who vows to save her.

On Jan. 18, jazz-prodigy singer-saxophonist Grace Kelly leads the Grace Kelly Quintet in an evening of playful musicality. Kelly has played more than 500 concerts as a leader since the age of 12. Now at 21, she has performed in more than 30 countries, collaborating and performing with such legends as Dave Brubeck, Gloria Estefan, Huey Lewis, Wynton Marsalis and Phil Woods. Her most recent accolades include winning Jazz Act of the Year at the 2013 New England Music Awards.

You don’t have to be a fugitive from justice to join Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues for a raucous evening of humor and song when The Official Blues Brothers Revue comes to Hatfield Hall on Feb. 7. Based on the original motion picture and produced by Judy Belushi Pisano and Dan Aykroyd, The Official Blues Brothers Revue pays homage to Chicago’s rich history of blues, soul music and gospel in the true spirit of the original Blues Brothers.   

Grammy nominee Ruthie Foster returns to Hatfield Hall on Feb. 21 with bluesman Eric Bibb for a show titled Thanks for the Joy. Blues lovers won’t want to miss these two great solo performers joining forces on stage for an evening of raw emotion, soulful singing and finely honed musical virtuosity. Bibb and Foster are at the forefront of a new generation of blues and soul.

Dance theater company Motionhouse will integrate movement and film in a breathtaking way as they present Scattered on March 29. Performed on a huge curved floor that disappears skyward, Scattered uses projection technology, daring dancing, plus aerial harnesses and bungees to create an extraordinary world in which the dancers move seamlessly in, on and through the image.

Hatfield Hall’s Mainstage Series concludes on May 17 when bluegrass powerhouse Steep Canyon Rangers meets the all-female group, Della Mae. Steep Canyon Rangers’ most recent release, “Nobody Knows You,” won the 2013 Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album, and they’ve toured nationally with actor/comedian/banjo player Steve Martin. Della Mae’s melting pot of musical talent, feisty tracks and spirited execution make them a force to be reckoned with.
