Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre

The Faulkner Performing Arts Center is thrilled to announce its 2022-23 concert season with an exciting lineup that will entertain and delight. The Faulkner Center Presents professional series is back, stronger than ever, with two performances never before seen in Northwest Arkansas.

On Oct. 4, Faulkner Center presents Cerqua Rivera Dance Theater. With their intense focus on personal narratives, the combined talents of their diverse collective of artists and the multiple artistic languages with which they communicate, Cerqua Rivera engages audiences in magnetic human stories at once new and deeply familiar.

For spring, Faulkner Center will present Aubrey Logan on Feb. 24. She's a singer. She's a trombone player. She's a songwriter. She's a performer. Her Top 5 debut album in 2017 helped establish her as one of the premier young singer-instrumentalists in the country.

Fans of legendary folk icons The Kingston Trio can re-discover their timeless music all over again. In celebration of nearly 65 years of music, the iconic folk group performs their best-loved songs as part of the "Keep The Music Playing" national tour. The group will perform on Oct. 26 at the Faulkner Performing Arts Center.

These performances, in addition to the seasonal performances of the U of A Department of Music, make this season at the Faulkner Center a step above the rest!
