Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. Anniversary Concert
October 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. is helping Southern WV Community & Technical College celebrate its 50th Anniversary with a free concert on its Logan campus on Saturday, October 16th.
Southern is proud to present Landau as he celebrates the 10th Anniversary of his “America’s Got Talent” win. The concert will be held in the Savas Kostas Performing Arts Center starting at 7pm.
Southern is asking for at least two cans of food for each ticket to be donated to the local college’s food bank, which serves its students.
Tickets become available on Monday, September 27th beginning at 9am. Limit two tickets per person. Tickets can be picked up at the receptionist desk in the front hallway of Building A on the Logan campus. Food donations need to be made at the time tickets are picked up.
We have limited seating, secure your ticket in advance. The seats will be held until 6:45pm on the day of the concert. This is a general admission event. No reserved seating. First-come, first-serve. Landau’s win in 2011 brought national and international attention to our local community. Celebrations and parades were held, banners and posters were in business windows and a bridge was named after him. In 2011, he got his big break when he won “America’s Got Talent”, receiving a million-dollar grand prize, a Las Vegas show, and a recording contract with Columbia Records. Landau’s debut CD shot to number one and stayed there for six weeks.
Southern President Dr. Pamela L. Alderman said “We are thrilled to present Landau on our stage. He has been an ambassador for the local area and a strong advocate for education. We are more than excited that he will be part of our 50th Anniversary year-long celebration.”
The concert is being sponsored by Fountain Place Cinemas, Logan Regional Medical Center, and The City of Logan.
Additional sponsors include Robert Noone Legal Services, Missy Birchfield, your local State Farm Insurance agent, Keefer’s Powersports, and Mountain State Harley-Davidson.
