Classical piano virtuoso

In 2014, The New York Times pronounced that “Teresa Walters is aptly nicknamed ‘The International First Lady of Piano’.” The classical Steinway pianist, brings her considerable prowess to the stage at the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts (205 E. Main St., Menomonie) for a 7:30 p.m. performance on Friday, Feb. 17.

The mesmerizing performances by Teresa Walters on today’s international concert stages inspire unanimous praise. The NY Times went on to note: “There was much to admire: The crashing octave runs were all right on the mark. Not a note was smudged in the pages of intricate passagework, and her conception had all the requisite sweep, power, and warm sonority.”

Tickets are $18 for seniors/students; $20 for general admission.

One-man variety show

James Wedgwood, an ideal performer for audience members of all ages, takes to the stage at the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts (205 E. Main St., Menomonie) as part of the family series at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18.

A tremendously talented ventriloquist, Wedgwood is equally talented as an entertainer who always gets his audience involved. His show is simply “The Most Fun You Can Have Without Moving Your Lips!”

Like a one-man variety show, Wedgwood makes virtually everything talk—from wooden “associates,” to purses, bottles, and even audience members (yes, they just open their mouths and he provides the surprising words)! A game show, singing (without moving his lips) and much more are all part of the fun.

Tickets are $10 for children, $15 for adults.

Call 715-235-0001, ext. 100; online at; or visit the box office Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. or one hour before the show.
