The Modlin Center for the Arts at University of Richmond recently announced its 2017-2018 season of performances in its 21st season of regular programming.

Instead of reprinting the entire list of musical, theatrical and dance events, which you can find on their website along with ticket information, we thought we’d include some YouTube videos of performances that we think will be surefire bets (not in order of appearance).

The Heart and Soul Queen of New Orleans, Irma Thomas with the Blind Boys of Alabama and the Preservation Hall Legacy Quartet on Saturday, Nov. 11 at Camp Concert Hall, Booker Hall of Music at 7:30 p.m.

Eddie Palmieri Latin Jazz Orchestra "Eddie at 80" on Saturday, Oct. 21 at the Alice Jepson Theatre at 7:30 p.m.

Rhiannon Giddens Freedom Highway Tour – Wednesday, Oct. 4 at Alice Jepson Theatre at 7:30 p.m.

Shovels & Rope on Thursday, Oct. 19 at Alice Jepson Theatre, 7:30 p.m.

THEATER

James Baldwin’s “Blues for Mr. Charlie” runs Thursday – Saturday, April 19 – 21, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 22, 2018 at 2 p.m. at Alice Jepson Theatre
