Palladian Series Ends On A High Note

“I took my husband to see the Rock Legends show and we loved it. It was awesome!”

“Great show. What a way to end the season!”

We have received tons of comments like these since we closed the 2016-17 Palladian Series on Saturday with Billy McGuigan and his Rock Legends show. We had a great audience here, and they really enjoyed the music and the magic of the evening.

The Palladian Series may be over for this season, but the auditorium will be far from quiet in the coming months. Our schedule for the summer includes dance and music recitals in May and June, the Johnston County Chorale annual spring concert, rehearsal and production of Clayton Youth Theater’s summer musical “Little Shop of Horrors,” and more.

Of course, we will also announce our 2017-18 Palladian Series and begin ticket sales for the season.

Please check in to this site throughout the summer for all of the latest news about what’s happening at The Clayton Center. As always, thanks to our sponsors and patrons for your continued support!
