Maureen McGovern: "The Long and Winding Road" (Canceled)
Maureen McGovern's concert has been canceled.
Sophisticated one moment, gutsy the next, and always pitch perfect, superstar Maureen McGovern has earned Grammy nominations and an Oscar-winning international No. 1gold record. Her concert includes music by Paul Simon, Carole King, James Taylor,Lennon/McCartney, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and other musical icons of the '60s and '70s- as well as Irish melodies in honor of St. Patrick's Day. McGovern will be joined by special guest, the SRU Choir, for several songs. "McGovern's vocal technique is second to none," said The New York Times.

The Capitol Steps
Date TBA, Miller Auditorium
The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. Since then, they have recorded more than 35 albums, including their latest, “The Lyin’ King. The group has been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and NPR among others. Always fresh and funny, the group bridges the political divide by lampooning left, right and center. The hilarious, nonpartisan show puts the “mock” in democracy.
A Broadway Holiday with the Nunziata Brothers and SRU Jazz Ensemble
Date TBA, Miller Auditorium
Acclaimed singer-songwriters and Carnegie Hall headliners Will and Anthony Nunziata return to SRU with their show, “A Broadway Holiday.” The performance will showcase their soaring tenor voices and soulful harmonies in renditions of holiday favorites, as well as plenty of good humor and brotherly banter. The Nunziatas will be accompanied by their Broadway pianist, Eugene Gwozdz, and the extraordinary SRU Jazz Ensemble, directed by Jason Kush.
