The Webb Center has a diverse line-up of performances during the 2012-2013 spring season: including comedy, ballet, classical and jazz piano, western, folk and Latin music.

In January, Wickenburg’s own Caroline Markham will be performing her favorite show tunes, arias and standards in a concert benefiting the Webb Center; and the week of the Presidential Inauguration, Capitol Steps will cause side-splitting laughter with up to the minute political satire and musical parodies.

February features new artists and returning favorites: direct from Moscow, the Russian National Ballet will be performing the classic story of Swan Lake; and for one night only, piano virtuosos Alpin Hong and Michael Kaeshammer are returning to the stage together and performing a unique blend of classical music, jazz and boogie-woogie.

During Gold Rush Days, western fans will enjoy the Riders in the Sky’s traditional cowboy music, joined onstage by actor Wilford Brimley. Later in the month, comedienne Jeanne Robertson, frequently heard on Sirius XM Radio, will share hilarious stories based on life with her husband “Left Brain;” and fresh acoustic duo Dala will sing folk classics and original songs with their trademark angelic harmonies.

Best known for their roles in “The Dukes of Hazzard,” accomplished singers Tom Wopat and John Schneider, accompanied by a full band, will perform Broadway, country and pop in The Return of the Dukes. Also performing in March is the Jesse Cook Quintet, blazing with energy and the sultry rhythms of flamenco; and The Black Watch and the Band of the Scots Guards with the stirring music and colorful ceremony of 300 years of military tradition.

Closing the “Webb Center Presents” series in April, will be Latin Grammy Award-winning Lila Downs; and Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives return with his unique blend of honky-tonk and country music.
