Dear Arts Supporters,
On behalf of everyone at Viterbo University, I would like to welcome you to the Fine Arts Center as we celebrate the return of in-person performances. The pandemic necessitated a year and a half-long pause in our live event schedule, and both our artists and audience members have been sorely missed. It is truly great to have you with us.
It’s only fitting that the Fine Arts Center should be fully used to its intended purpose during its 50th anniversary year. Opened in 1971, it remains not only the premier arts facility in the region, but also a wonderful testament to the vision and courage of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration who made it possible. Their collective love and appreciation for the arts led to countless cultural opportunities in the greater La Crosse community and has enhanced all our lives.
New Fine Arts Center director Dillion McArdle and his staff have an outstanding season planned for you this year. I invite you to pick up an On Stage book or visit the Viterbo website for the complete schedule. There is a wide variety of offerings from which to choose, and tickets make wonderful gifts. Included in the schedule are the Conservatory for the Performing Arts student productions. I am continually amazed at the incredible talent of our students, and seeing them put it to use always fills me with pride, no matter their role, pursuit, or field of study.
While live performances and other events have returned, we must remain vigilant in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. I ask that you adhere to the university’s safety policies, including remaining masked while anywhere inside the building.
The arts will always be an integral part of the Viterbo University experience, which is made even more special through the support of our patrons, benefactors, sponsors, and volunteers. It would not be the same without you. Thank you.
Rick Trietley, Interim President
Since Justin Spencer formed Recycled Percussion, the band has been unstoppable. Their junk rock music became a national phenomenon week after week during their smash hit performances on America’s Got Talent in 2009. Playing over 5,000 shows in over 15 countries, the group has also done guest appearances on Carson Daly, The Today Show, China’s Got Talent, the Latin Grammy Awards, the TikTok Gala, and more. After being featured on the cover of USA Today and being voted National Act of the Year a record-breaking six times, the band gained worldwide recognition.
In 2010, they sealed the deal and became headliners in Las Vegas! In 2017, they started their own Emmy-winning TV show, Chaos & Kindness, which focuses on the chaos of stage life mixed with giving back and making a difference in the world. Taking 2022 by storm, Recycled Percussion elevated their energy level, created new performance elements, and continues to bring junk rock music across the globe. Whether it is a sink, ladders, or buckets, the band makes a beat out of anything you put in front of them so get out your inner rockstar and get ready to rock!
