Judy Collins has "inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism." Since the 1960s, she has evoked "idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices." Five decades later, her presence shines as new generations bask "in her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century."

The Lafayette Symphony Orchestra and Kentucky Opera Company will perform Puccini’s opera “La Boheme” Saturday night at the Long Center.

The Wabash Valley Youth Symphony and some special guests will present the orchestra’s final concert of the season Sunday evening at the Long Center.
