al and leigh buettner SIGNATURE SERIES

A new name. A new take. Beginning September 2018, Vanguard Performances will take a new name: The Signature Series. Every “Signature” concert is an event, a departure from the everyday, a singular pageant dedicated to the individual creative genius. In each concert, a distinct artist will be featured: a musician, a composer, or a conductor. They’re given the spotlight–and the control. From the first note to the last, every aspect is in their hands. Just imagine what will happen.

Bonus: Subscribers get all four concerts for the price of three.
