Engelbert Humperdinck, Three Stages
Few people realize that several of the major forces in the world of rock n' roll, including Jimi Hendrix and The Carpenters, started out as opening acts for Humperdinck in the late '60's, 70's and '80's.
Humperdinck has recorded everything from the most romantic ballads to the platinum-selling theme song for the latest Beavis and Butthead movie. He is currently working on a brand new CD with Grammy award-winning producer Martin Terefe (Train, Jason Mraz, James Morrison, Beverly Knight) with, according to Humperdinck, "a lot of fantastic young, hip and surprising collaborations". The album is tentatively scheduled to be out in March.
Three Stages at Folsom Lake College presents touring artists from around the world; partners with the best regional arts organizations, and supports productions by FLC students and faculty.
Three Stages at Folsom Lake College is a $50 million performing and visual arts center that opened in February 2011. Located on the campus, Three Stages includes three intimate performance venues (850, 200, 100 seats), an art gallery, a recording studio, ample rehearsal and classroom space, a Full Service ticket office plus all the amenities of a state-of-the-art performance venue. Parking is free on weekends and for those buying tickets in advance.
A renaming of Three Stages is currently under way. The new name, Harris Center for the Arts, honors Dr. Brice Harris, Chancellor Emeritus of the Los Rios Community College District, for his many contributions to the Capital Region, including providing the vision and leadership that led to the opening of this regional arts center.
