As 2007 begins, the Robson Performing Arts Center is in full swing with performances planned for a variety of artistic tastes.

Just finishing a Christmas season full of school concerts from elementary schools through high school, the stage won’t stay quiet for long.

The United States Air Force Band will be performing on Sunday, Jan. 21 at 2 p.m. Free tickets are now available at the box office.

“The limit is six tickets per person as we want everybody in our community to have the opportunity to attend this fantastic concert,” said Ruby Quinn, executive director.

The Air Force Band performance is drawn from the established masterworks of notable contemporary composers.

The Robson PAC is also producing the musical “Love is Here to Stay,” a George Gershwin review full of hits such as “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “Embraceable You,” “’s Wonderful,” “Summertime,” “Swanee,” “I’ve Got a Crush on You,” and of course “Love is Here to Stay.”

Performing and also serving as musical director is Jeff Lankov, musical director for the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes Christmas show.

Tickets to “Love is Here to Stay” will go on sale Jan. 8, with performances Feb. 9-10.

“There are so many wonderful things happening with the Center,” Quinn said. “We are working on having a full season. We are also going to have a summer season full of musicals and performances.”

Volunteers are needed. “Whether it be ushers, technical help or ticket sales, we would love to welcome you to the Center,” Quinn said.

The Select-A-Seat campaign to purchase auditorium seats wrapped up at the end of December.

“We have had a tremendous response to the campaign and we thank all the wonderful members of Claremore’s community for their generosity,” Quinn said.
