They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard... and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story -- a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, JERSEY BOYS. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s just too good to be true.

Jersey Boys contains authentic,"profane Jersey language" and is recommended for ages 12+.

Switchback is the award-winning duo of Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack. Switchback draws on traditional Celtic music and original Americana songs that reflect their Irish heritage and Midwestern roots. Playing an exciting mix of mandolin, guitar, and bass, their harmonies have won them comparisons to famous duos, such as the Louvin Brothers, the Everly Brothers, and Simon and Garfunkel. Music Connection Magazine said of Switchback: “The words ‘American Roots & Celtic Soul’ only begin to describe this unusual act, whose vocal prowess is as pure as it is unique...there is no denying the stunning vocal blends that are achieved by this duo.”

Join us for an evening with Morganton’s own “Karaoke Queen” Alberta Hall. From Jazz and Motown to Contemporary Soul, Alberta performs it all! After a background of singing with her family, church and in the community, the time has come for Alberta to be in her own spotlight. In 2017 she was the first TGIF Show Down winner, and had the crowd up and on their feet. Alberta comes to life when there is a microphone in her hand! CoMMA Director, Jim Smith, finds a local artist to show off every year in our line up, and Alberta has definitely earned her place in the 2018-2019 season! The CoMMA staff heard Alberta at the winners stage last year and knew our patrons would absolutely love her unique style and energy. She will bring the Rhythm and Blues to the stage just like no one else!
