A two-time Grammy nominee, Tommy Emmanuel -- voted Best Acoustic Guitarist in Guitar Player magazine's 2008 and 2010 Reader's Choice Awards -- comes to the Lund Auditorium for an exciting evening of guitar virtuosity. One of Australia's most revered musicians, Emmanuel uses an uncommon 10-fingered style, known as Travis picking, first popularized by the legendary Chet Atkins -- who counted himself among Emmanuel's greatest fans and even named him a Certified Guitar Player. One of only a handful ever to receive that honor, Emmanuel has played alongside greats like Eric Clapton and Les Paul during a professional career that spans nearly five decades. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Chicago Gay Men's ChorusThe Chicago Gay Men's Chorus (CGMC) has been an integral part of Chicago's cultural and gay communities since 1983. For the last two decades, they have entertained audiences across the continent with innovative musical programming exploring everything from love to politics to the sometimes fabulous, sometimes challenging world of being gay--often all at the same time. Their always-memorable performances have included original musical revues; four popular productions celebrating the Sidetrack show tune experience; full-length book musicals like The Wizard of Oz, The Mikado and H.M.S. Pinafore; and traditional choral concerts--all punctuated with their signature joyous irreverence.
Notable milestones in their recent history include their induction into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame, multiple performances of the National Anthem at Chicago Cubs baseball games, and the production of two CDs: Cool Yule, which debuted in November 2001, and I Will Be Loved Tonight, a collection of their favorite love (and not-so-in-love) songs that was released in December 2004.
