This year’s series includes 30 Saturday performances along with two special holiday events: Ken Lonnquist on Wednesday, Oct. 25 and Cash Box Kings on Friday, Nov. 24.

Overture Center’s Kids in the Rotunda series is tailored for children age 9 and younger but welcomes all ages, featuring renowned folk singers, drum lines, kid-friendly improv, and Indian dance.
