Glema Mahr Center for the Arts: 2023-2024 Season

Excitement is in the air at the Glema Center in preparation for the upcoming season!

“We are thrilled with the 2023-2024 Season, and we hope our audiences will be, as well,” said Glema Center Director Brad Downall. “We look forward to welcoming Exile back to the state where they were formed, and bringing in Chapel Hart so soon after they were finalists on America’s Got Talent should be great fun. From the aerial acrobatics of B: The Underwater Bubble Show to the old-world charm of the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, and from the hilarity of Elf the Musical to the heart tugging moments in Steel Magnolias, we think this year’s line-up includes a great variety of concerts and events.”

Downall noted changes to ticket pricing this season. Rear floor seats, which had previously been priced midway between front floor seats and balcony seats, are now the same rate as balcony seats. Additionally, student tickets for all four concerts included in the Glema Mahr Chamber Music Series are free for the 2023-2024 Season.

The Center Stage lineup, sponsored by the Hopkins County Tourist & Convention Commission, the City of Madisonville, the Enduring Legacy of Mrs. Glema Mahr, and Old National Bank, includes Chapel Hart, Collage Dance Collective, A Brass Transit Christmas, Exile, Hooked on Classics (Orchestra Kentucky), and Rumours: A Fleetwood Mac TributeThe Glema’s US Bank Family Series is sure to be a hit with all ages with B: The Underwater Bubble Show and the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus.

The Glema Mahr Chamber Music Series will present tenor Daniel McGrew & harpist Parker Ramsay, bassoonist Eleni Katz & pianist Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner, pianist Brian Woods, and the Eykamp String Quartet.
