Freed Center welcomes The Kingsmen Quartet
The Ohio Northern University Freed Center for the Performing Arts presents The Kingsmen Quartet on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 7:30 p.m.
For more than a half a century, no group has secured such a far-reaching legacy like that of The Kingsmen Quartet. Since 1956, this group has risen from humble beginnings in the mountains of western North Carolina to become one of the most beloved and innovative groups in Christian music. Countless renowned artists have been a part of this great lineage, including Eldridge Fox, “Big” Jim Hamill, Ray Dean Reese, Squire Parsons, Johnny Parrack, Anthony Burger, Ernie Phillips and Gary Sheppard. The momentum has not stopped, as the group continues to help define the southern gospel genre for a whole new generation of music lovers, perhaps more so than any other group.
Tickets for this event are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, $15 for ONU faculty and staff, and $10 ONU students and children. The Freed Center box office is open Monday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Phone orders are accepted with American Express, MasterCard, VISA or Discover by calling 419-772-1900.
