Carpenter Performing Arts Center

President's Party

Mavis Staples

Sat, April 28, 2018 at 8 p.m.

Grammy Award-winner and Kennedy Center Honoree Mavis Staples is living, breathing history. A master at weaving the genres of rhythm and blues, gospel, and soul, her voice became an anthem of the Civil Rights movement. Now in her seventh decade, Staples’ legendary raw and rasping voice is more powerful than ever as she shouts, croons, scats, and testifies like no one else can.


Proceeds from this benefit performance support the theatre's Arts for Life program.
