Sons of Serendip, Songs in the Key of Wonder:
50 Years of Stevie Wonder


Finalists on Season 9 of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, Sons of Serendip creates beautiful music through the use of harp, piano, cello, and voice. The quartet met in graduate school at Boston University and has been performing for audiences as a powerhouse ever since. Sons of Serendip hopes to bring joy to audience members and make their lives a little better — even just for a moment. The group honors singer-songwriter legend Stevie Wonder in their Songs in the Key of Wonder show as they perform Wonder’s top hits such as “Isn’t She Lovely,” “Higher Ground,” and “Superstition.”

Preview a video of Sons of Serendip here.

A free Cybercafé Knapp Stage Pre-Show Concert featuring the Tim Crumley Trio precedes this performance from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Sons of Serendip is made possible, in part, by the William P. Woodward Visiting Artist-in-Residence Endowment.

Treasure Island Auditions (Missoula Children's Theatre)

Students in kindergarten through 12th grade are invited to audition for a role in the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of Treasure Island. Approximately 50-60 local students will be cast to appear in the show with a Missoula Children’s Theatre professional actor/director.  Rehearsals will be held the evenings of January 15-19th with performances on January 20th.


Saturday, January 20, 2018
10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Treasure Island (Missoula Children's Theatre)

Missoula Children’s Theatre takes pride in presenting an original adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s epic novel featuring a cast of local youth. Young Jim Hawkins, a mischievous lad, lives with his mother and six sisters in a seaside village on the coast of Maine. The year is 1782 and the American War for Independence is waning. Longing for adventure, Jim comes under the hypnotic spell of the legendary pirate, Long John Silver. With a ragged treasure map in hand and the villainous Silver as his seeming mentor, Jim sails uncharted seas with a flock of gulls as guides. Always up for adventure, Jim’s ruffian friends say farewell to their village parents and serve as cabin boys for Silver and his band of hilarious (although unsavory) pirate types. Once on the island, nights are sleepless as true colors are revealed in our hero’s quest for the proverbial happy ending. Then – at last – the treasure is found and, hand in hand, we’re homeward bound.

KidsJanuary 8 - January 26, 2018
The Painted Word: Kiddie Art and Lit

In the chilly, dark days of winter, we’ll warm up to drawings done by Dubuque Elementary School students based upon three popular winter books. Will the kindergarten and first graders rush through the text in these books only to focus on the imagery or will they illustrate the text as well? Professor Kathleen Saleh from the Education Department is our guest curator.

Reception: January 20, 2018 | 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. between Missoula Children's Theatre Treasure Island performances

FREE | No Ticket Required

High SchoolJanuary 29 - February 13, 2018
Dubuque High School Juried Art Show

Always a popular community exhibit at the Bisignano, this unique show is juried by the students’ art teachers themselves.  Participating schools include Dubuque Senior High School, Hempstead High School, and Wahlert High School. What is always so surprising is that the works in this show by these young artists are, in fact, so surprising.

Closing Reception: February 13, 2018 | 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. prior to Amazing Grace: A New Broadway Musical
