Giving Tuesday

It’s #GivingTuesday, and we need your help!

Frederick County Bank has offered us a generous challenge gift if we can raise $2,500 in NEW MEMBERSHIPS or DONATIONS between #GivingTuesday (December 1st) and December 31st.  If you’ve ever considered becoming one of the valued members of the Weinberg Center for the Arts, or thought of upgrading your existing membership, now is a great time to do so.


  • Ticket-buying access before the general public (Secure the best seats in the house!)
  • Complimentary concessions coupons
  • Free tickets at higher membership levels


You don’t have to be a world leader or a billionaire to give back. #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together to do extraordinary things. Your gifts to the Weinberg Center make it possible for us to provide a showcase for both world-class international and up-and-coming artists that ticket sales alone may not cover. Your giving also helps us provide arts education programs for over 15,000 schoolchildren per year. You can help us continue to “pay-it-forward” for the next generation of artists.


Every new or increased gift you make will double its impact through Frederick County Bank’s generous matching gift.  You can join the millions around the world who are giving back this #GivingTuesday and help us reach our goal of $2,500 by:

Thank you.  Without you, the show would not go on.

Straight No Chaser: The New Old Fashioned Tour

If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses… think again. Straight No Chaser are neither straight-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV appearances and proven success with CD releases.

THE NEW OLD FASHIONED TOUR comes to town on the heels of the release of their new album “The New Old Fashioned,” their fifth album release through Atlantic Records. The album features an eclectic array of songs that explore multiple influential musical eras highlighted by signature and singularly unique medleys. Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music with a sense of humor. Don’t miss this incredible live concert event!

With authentic arrangements, costumes, and choreography, the fabulous String of Pearls big band orchestra and In the Mood singers and dancers will have audiences aged 8 to 98 cheering for more!

Swimming in Dark Waters: Other Voices of the American Experience

Featuring Rhiannon Giddens, Bhi Bhiman, and Leyla McCalla

“Rhiannon Giddens can summon the power of a field holler, Celtic quavers, girlish innocence, bluesy sensuality, gospel exaltation, or the pain of slavery.”
-The New York Times

The protest singer-songwriter has become an icon of American resilience, with a strong but under-recognized history featuring many musicians of color. In honor of Black History month, Carolina Chocolate Drops member Rhiannon Giddens, cellist Leyla McCalla, and singer/songwriter Bhi Bhiman explore the rich thread of protest songs throughout the South, bringing to life old and new stories alike.
