Kicking off the Signature Series on September 16 with some kicking big band sounds, Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass offers a concert format that breaks barriers and creates connections between performers and audiences. On November 4, artist Quinn Lemley performs her solo musical “Rita Hayworth: The Heat is On!” which celebrates and reveals the woman coined “The Love Goddess” after becoming the most glamorous screen idol of the 1940s.

On February 10, 2024, North Carolina’s own The Kruger Brothers return to the Veh Stage to share their impressive talent and brotherly love of musical exploration and innovation. Rounding out the season is the March 23 performance of Kings Return, an acapella ensemble of vocalists who have been featured on NPR and on stages nationwide for their unique harmonies inspired by gospel and R&B.

Season tickets and premium seating for the upcoming season are now on sale at or by calling (828) 859-8322. Tickets for individual events will be available for purchase starting August 18.

“On behalf of Tryon Fine Arts Center, I’d like to recognize and thank our sponsors and our volunteers,” Carruth said. “Without community support, we really could not offer such outstanding programming and live performances. I expect we’ll have quite a large audience enjoying each performance of TFAC’s Signature Series.”

All Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. on TFAC’s Veh Stage at 34 Melrose Avenue in Tryon.
