Second Season of Music at the Mansion Begins February 28

Music at the Mansion

The second season of Music at the Mansion begins Friday, Feb. 28 and it is not too late to be part of this musical treat.  The season will begin with an invitation-only free concert on the 28th, featuring music by Lisa Morales, Shake Russell and Michael Hearne. Although 2013 Sponsors and Sustaining Members – and those who have already signed up for the 2014 season – have a priority invitation, a limited number of seats are available for those interested in purchasing one of the few remaining memberships for this year’s season.  

A $500 membership includes two tickets to each concert and admission to a pre-concert reception where members enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres as well as meet and mingle with the performers and other patrons of the arts.

The concert on the 28th will feature music by Lisa Morales, Shake Russell and Michael Hearne. Each reception begins at 7 p.m. with the performance starting at 7:30 p.m.

This season’s other concerts are:

March 28                  Bill Ward and Mike Blakely
May 2                         Buddy Mondlock and Trout Fishing in America
September 12         Doug Wintch & Anke Summerhill and Bill & Mary Muse
October 17               John Smith and The Waymores
December 5             Eliza Gilkyson and Chuck Pyle

Music at the Mansion is a cooperative effort between Schreiner University and the Kerrville Folk Festival to bring world-class entertainers to Kerrville and to honor and celebrate the region’s indigenous tradition of songwriting and songwriters. The concerts, hosted at the Schreiner Mansion Historic Site and Education Center in downtown Kerrville, began a year ago.

“We are proud to continue this collaboration,” said Dr. Charlie McCormick, vice president for academic affairs at Schreiner University and one of the organizers of the event. “The first season was a rousing success, with great audiences for every show, and some of the country’s finest songwriters presenting their music, stories, and poetry in the intimate, but graceful atmosphere of this iconic Kerrville setting. We expect this season to be at or near a sell-out. Anyone who has intended to check out Music at the Mansion should definitely call and secure that option soon.”
