Students, community members showcase talents in LIVE @ The Mendel Center

Lake Michigan College’s Performing Arts department will present a new variety show called LIVE @ The Mendel Center on Friday, March 18.

A myriad of lively performances by dancers, musicians, and laugh-out-loud comedians formulate a production with something for everyone, and an evening not to be missed.

LIVE @ The Mendel Center is hosted and directed by professional guitarist and vocalist, Dan Maxon. Performers include local band The Faction, singer/songwriter Sam Blyveis, dancers from Fusion Center for Dance, and LMC performing arts students including Japanese pianist, Masashi Sekioka.

Maxon is also an alumnus of LMC’s performing arts program. “This is a coming home of sorts and a way to give back to the college and the community. We have a great lineup of talent, and those who attend are in for a fantastic evening of entertainment,” he said.

LIVE @ The Mendel Center will be presented Friday, March 18, at 7 p.m. Tickets for the event are $20 per person and include hors d’oeuvres or $7 per person for the show only. A cash bar will be available.

Tickets may be ordered in advance online at TheMendelCenter.com or by calling The Mendel Center box office at (269) 927-1221. Those who wish to attend are encouraged to order tickets early. Seating is limited to the first 100 patrons.
