Societal presents a special “Flash Jazz” Concert featuring national recording artist and Grammy Award winner Marion Meadows, for the first time at the DeYor PAC.
Born in West Virginia, Meadows began playing the clarinet and studying classical music at the age of nine. His passion for various types of music led him down an eclectic musical path. Meadows first hit the airwaves in 1991 with “For Lovers Only”, but his career really began one day in the late ‘80s at New York’s Grand Central Station where – while waiting for a train – he pulled out his horn and began playing under the huge dome. Fellow traveler, producer and TV composer Jay Chattaway was so impressed with his sound that he hooked Meadows up with legendary keyboardist Bob James. He gradually became a staple of the contemporary jazz format with his recordings, including Body Rhythm (1994) Passion (1997), Next To You (2000), Players Club (2004) and Secrets (2009). His latest release, Soul Traveler is available on Shanachie Label.
Don’t miss the “Nathan James Review” featuring Arielle Green as the show opener. VIP tickets are available and include a meet and greet with Marion at the Soap Gallery on Champion Street following the concert.

Winner of five Tony Awards for its hugely successful run on Broadway, this fascinating and hilarious prequel to Peter Pan upends the century-old story of how very special orphan became “the boy who never grew up.” A dozen actors headed by Todd Hancock and Maureen Collins will play more than 100 characters using ingenious stagecraft, inventive storytelling and live music to whisk audiences to a magical world of lost boys, pirates, and mermaids! Perfect for people who like wildly imaginative and inventive theater, the show is suitable for younger audiences but most enjoyable for ages 8 and up.
