  • Former Senator Olympia Snowe & former Senator Joe Lieberman

    Two giants from the political stage join together (as they were often known to do in bipartisan fashion) to present their views and answer questions on topical issues impacting our nation. Senator Olympia Snowe’s dedicated work garnered her nationwide recognition as a leading policymaker in Washington. Senator Lieberman is perhaps best known as the Democratic candidate for Vice President in 2000. During his Capitol Hill tenure he established himself as a national leader — one who worked across party lines to find common ground, a person who spoke his conscience and who got things done for the good of all people in America. A Conversation with former Senator Olympia Snowe and former Senator Joe Lieberman will be at the Ferguson Center in Newport News on October 7 at 7:30 p.m. Enter now to win a pair of tickets!

  • Jae Sinnett Trio with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra

    Drummer/composer Jae Sinnett has been leading his Hampton Roads-based trio for over 20 years. Respectfully, it’s one of the great performing, touring, recording and versatile jazz ensembles in the country. Now the trio goes into new territory, teaming up with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra for an unforgettable and exciting evening of beautifully melodic jazz with orchestra accompaniment — think “jazz with strings.” Pianist Allen Farnham orchestrated five of Sinnett’s compositions and one timeless standard, “As Time Goes By.” Terry Burrell is the bassist. It will be an incredible evening of music and a rare opportunity to hear a special musical collaboration with the trio and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. The Jae Sinnett Trio with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra will be at the Ferguson Center in Newport News on October 10 at 8 p.m. Enter now to win a pair of tickets!
