We couldn’t have been more excited this last season when we surprised you by bringing a Beatle to Tyler for the first time ever! Exactly 100 new people joined the Cowan Center Circle to buy tickets early to see Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band. We know most of you already knew how to take advantage of your member benefits but getting so many new members was crazy! It came complete with some 1960s crying girls and lots of peace signs, too.

You’re in for a treat as we prepare for our 19th Cowan Center season.  We have so many concerts planned that it was hard to choose which night to throw a party for you. Since Trace Adkins is the first one, let’s party that night! A driving force in the country music industry, Trace will make an appearance at the Cowan Center Circle Members’ Gala and bring the house down at the concert afterwards with his unmistakable deep voice and upbeat country music.

Your membership support is more than funding for the Center; it keeps you connected to what is happening and gives you some perks throughout the year. We appreciate your loyalty and love seeing you every time the doors of this big Cowan Center open to welcome you!

Please join and support our 19th Sensational Season!

Susan Thomae-Morphew,
Cowan Center Executive Director
