FLORENCE, S.C. — Tickets for the Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center’s 2022 season go on sale today, featuring diverse musical offerings ranging from bluegrass, to classical, and southern rock.

The January 21 performance of Sam Bush and Edgar Meyer will showcase masters of the progressive bluegrass style of music. Joined by Mike Marshall and George Meyer (Edgar’s son), the quartet features a unique collaboration you might enjoy at a bluegrass festival. Concert-goers can expect to hear tracks from the groundbreaking album Short Trip Home, as well as new “genre bending” music written especially for this tour.

On January 27, the world-renowned Polish Wieniawski Philharmonic Orchestra visits the PAC as part of its 2022 US tour. The Philharmonic has performed around the world since 1944, and it has featured the most prominent Polish musicians and internationally acclaimed artists. Under the direction of conductor Wojciech Rodek, the performance will feature Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto and Beethoven’s immortal Symphony No. 5.

On March 26, the PAC will jam to the sounds of Southern Rock band Atlanta Rhythm Section (ARS).

ARS packs an entertaining punch, with multiple Billboard Top 10 tracks you’ll hear at this performance.
