One Night in Memphis: The #1 Tribute to Presley, Perkins, Lewis & Cash
(September 22, 2020 5:27 PM) With performing arts venues closed in the region, the Potter Center at Jackson College will offer a Virtual Series, free for the community, this fall.
“We were looking for ways to engage our patrons, to let our patrons know we are still thinking of them,” said Sandra Phelan, operations coordinator. “Fall tours have been canceled with the continued shutdown. This is a way to offer entertainment and to help people stay connected with the arts.”
Shows will be available for three days from the premier date on YouTube. Check a link on the Jackson College website for access; www.jccmi.edu/pottercenter/virtual-series/.
