Yavapai College Honors Program Benefit Concert

Yavapai College Honors Program Benefit Concert

25 Jun 2014



7:00 pm-9:00 pm

Located at: Yavapai College Perfoming Arts Center

On June 25th at 7:00pm the Yavapai College Honors Program will be presenting a benefit concert starring Natalie Stovall and the Drive at the Yavapai College Performing Arts Center. Doors will open at 6:00pm.

Whether it’s Natalie Stovall’s breathtaking vocals and larger-than-life stage presence, her band’s turbo-charged, take-no prisoners live shows, or the collective unit’s barnstorming worldwide tours, Natalie Stovall and The Drive prove they are arena ready. A humble, charismatic entertainer with a trademark lion’s mane of big blonde hair, Natalie and her powerful vocals and sparkling fiddle leave audiences spellbound.

 

Although she can seem larger than life onstage, offstage she’s as down home and as easy-going as can be. One-on-one sincerity and a contagious personality just come naturally to this small town girl from Columbia, Tennessee. Make no mistake though, as soon as you put this small town girl in front of an audience – something spontaneous, mesmerizing, and explosive happens.

 

Performing over 200 dates a year, they were named “Entertainers of the Year in 2012” by Campus Activities Magazine, and Natalie was once again honored in 2014 as “Female Artist of the Year.” Billboard Magazine named them “Ten Country Artists To Watch” in 2014. And The Drive returned this summer from the Middle East on one of their many Navy Entertainment Tours in support of our troops across the globe.

This event will provide an opportunity for members of the community to get out, interact, and hear some great music by one of the fastest rising stars in country music, while supporting a group of exceptional students who are not only serious about their education, but committed to their community.

The benefit will also include a raffle for a fiddle signed by Natalie Stovall and the Drive as well as a silent auction with many great items. Some of the items already donated for the silent auction include a collection of commemorative college chairs, a bronze roughrider statue, and autographed Gail Gardner book, all from the estate of past Yavapai College president Joseph Russo. Also included on the auction block is an assortment of signed musical instruments.

All of the proceeds will go directly to the Yavapai College Honors Program. Providing educational enrichment opportunities and scholarship incentives for superior students attending Yavapai College, the program helps to provide an environment that nurtures students: Academically, Socially, Emotionally, and Intellectually. Students who have proven their ability to excel academically can participate in the College Honors Program on either the Prescott or Verde Valley campuses.

Ticket prices are $20-$30 and are available online at YCPAC.COM or can be ordered by phone at 928-776-2000. Tickets may also be purchased at the Box Office. The YCPAC Box Office is located at the front of the Performing Arts Center, to the right of the entrance doors.
