Sister Act is Broadway’s feel-amazing musical comedy smash! The New York Post calls it “ridiculously fun,” and audiences are jumping to their feet in total agreement! Featuring original music by eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors), Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to rejoice!

It’s a rather simple idea: Invite your best musician friends to perform together in your living room. For violinist Sir Neville Marriner and his cohorts—who, in 1958, were among London’s elite classical musicians—the ambition was an intimate chamber music concert at the St. Martin in the Fields church. Surprising even themselves, they were invited to make a recording from that very first engagement. More than 55 years, 500 recordings, and thousands of concerts later, rarely a day of classical music radio passes without hearing the extraordinary, unparalleled work of what became the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. The next chapter in this ensemble’s amazing history was 2011’s appointment of Indiana native and superstar violinist Joshua Bell as Music Director to succeed Sir Marriner. For this special limited engagement at Purdue, pianist Jeremy Denk—MacArthur Foundation “Genius” grant recipient and 2014 Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year—will join them for two J.S. Bach keyboard concerti. Known to Purdue audiences from 2008’s collaborative recital with Bell and a 2009 solo appearance, Denk will bring his intelligent, expressive talents to bear while the Academy adds luminous performances of works by Antonín Dvorák and Josef Suk.
