Acclaimed singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright will present a solo concert of selections from his wide-ranging catalogue of folk, pop, rock and classical songs on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center at Mercyhurst University. His appearance is part of the Mercyhurst Institute for Arts & Culture (MIAC) Live Series. Praised by the New York Times for his “genuine originality,” Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. The New York-born, Montreal-raised singer/songwriter has released seven studio albums, three DVDs and three live albums, including the Grammy-nominated Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall, which captured his celebrated Judy Garland tribute performance at the London Palladium in 2007, and the album Release the Stars, which went Gold in Canada and the U.K. Tickets are $36 for adults, $31 for seniors, and $26 for students/youth.
