Join us for Pablo Center's 2018-2019 Inaugural season

As part of Pablo Center's first season, you will find dance in all its glorious forms; music from hot to cool, from smoky to sublime; family shows that will steal your heart and your breath; comedy and spectacle to delight and astound; art galleries offering up feasts for the senses. This is no ordinary place, where these rivers meet, and we hope you will find we've chosen a season to match.

Featured Series

Country

Pull up a stool and join the Pablo Center for four rousing evenings of strings and songwriting. Nashville sensation Tony Jackson’s traditional country style, Farewell Angelina’s breathtaking power and harmonies, and the four-part harmonies and upbeat songs of The Oak Ridge Boys; there is something on the menu for everyone, and everyone is welcome!

Dance

Pablo Center takes center stage with a dance series well worthy of the name. Thrill to the athletic artistry of Alvin Ailey II, indulge in the dizzying wit and technical brilliance of Les Ballet Trockadero de Monte Carlo, the traditional Japanese drum with limitless rhythmic possibilities of Kodo Taiko, and join us as local cirque-inspired favorites The Torch Sisters sizzle in their first solo show. Take the leap - what you find will not disappoint.

Family

Offering programming for every member of the family from two to ninety-two, Pablo Center’s Family Series will delight, astound, and entertain. Whether it’s the aerial magic of Air Play, the breathtaking spectacle of Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium, the wit and storytelling of Phantom Tollbooth, or the simple perfection of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, the Pablo Center family invites your family to share in our excitement.

Film

Admit it; we all need to believe in movies sometimes. Join Pablo Center for a film series “with a twist” – favorite flicks, a casual night out, and at the lobby bar cocktails inspired by that night’s offering. With something for everyone and every occasion, we hope to see you for a couple-two-three…

Jazz & Gospel

The lush, smoky vocals of Ganavya have set the jazz world on fire; Aaron Diehl stuns with elegant perfection and unmatched musicianship; the Blind Boys of Alabama have no equal and need no introduction. With these three artists, Pablo Center presents a series as varied as jazz and gospel themselves, and invites you to join us for three unforgettable evenings. As Louis Armstrong once said, “Hot can be cool & cool can be hot & each can be both. But hot or cool man, Jazz is Jazz.”

Literary

“The minute I find myself sitting still, I start rummaging around for printed material.” – Michael Perry

The written word speaks volumes as Pablo Center at the Confluence presents a season of literary offerings. Old favorites and new ventures, from poetry and fiction to nonfiction and playwrighting - everyone will find something well worth the rummage.

New Classics

Claude Debussy once observed, “Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art.”

Pablo Center’s New Classics series spotlights world-renowned classical artists who have made their names by making their own rules. The Metropolitan Opera’s Kate Lindsey strips away the trappings for an evening of pure vocal magic, the rollicking Irish/bluegrass melodies of Hanneke Cassel and Mike Block, bass virtuoso Edgar Meyer offers an intimate celebration of Bach and bluegrass, and cutting-edge string quartet Brooklyn Rider dazzles with a program of pieces written just for them.
