The first performance of the season will start the year off with smoke, lasers, lavish drum fills, and the humming of amplifiers, as the students of the Uptown Music Collective take on the challenge of performing the music of progressive rock icons Rush. The Canadian band is renowned for their musicianship, complex songs, and powerful stage performances. The UMC show will feature songs from every era of the bands long career, including hit songs like Tom Sawyer, Spirit of the Radio and Limelight. Performed alongside classic Rush album tracks like the 2112 Overture, YYZ, Working Man, and so much more.

     For Permanent Waves: The Music of Rush, we would like to make available a “VIP Package” for those who would like to be a little bit closer to the performance! For an additional $10.00, concert attendees will be able to upgrade their ticket to allow them a seat in the pit. In addition to exclusive pit seating, those that upgrade will receive a commemorative laminate and a meet and greet with the cast directly after the performance, all while helping the Collective with a $10.00 donation.
     This upgrade WILL ONLY HAPPEN on the nights of the performances at the will call table in the lobby. This will work on a “first come, first served” basis, you will not be able to get upgraded tickets during pre-sale. The first 50 people that request an upgrade at the will call table on the nights of the performances will pay an additional $10.00, exchange their ticket for a commemorative VIP laminate, and be granted access to pit seating. This upgrade can only happen for the night of the performance (i.e. You can’t come to the show on Friday night and upgrade for Saturday night). So, get out to the show early, upgrade to the “VIP Package” and get a front row seat for Permanent Waves: The Music of Rush!!
