URBANA- Jay Goldberg Events and Entertainment has been selected to produce two of the three Gentlemen of the Road 2013 Stopovers in the United States featuring Mumford & Sons, alongside long-time partners Jam Productions Ltd. The events went on sale Friday morning and both sold out within hours. This will be the second year of the Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers and the second year Jay Goldberg Events & Entertainment has been involved with the events.

Each Stopover combines the intimacy of a community celebration with the excitement of a world-class music festival. This year the Stopovers are expanding to a Friday night concert followed by an all-day Saturday event. Mumford & Sons will headline the Saturday show, alongside an eclectic and energetic roster of artists curated by the band themselves. A series of smaller events involving local businesses, venues, and, most importantly, local people will happen in and around the town.

Nova Singers, under the direction of Dr. Laura Lane, presents two performances of VoiceDance Saturday, February 16 at 7:30 p.m. at First Lutheran Church in Galesburg, and Sunday, February 17 at 4:00 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Davenport.

Voices dance, whether it’s imitating birds in a Monteverdi madrigal, evoking tenderness in a French love song, or grooving to jazz. In this unique program, Nova will perform classic works by Monteverdi and Poulenc with surprising rhythms. Our fun, modern sets include Haitian rhythms that will make you want to get up and dance! Our vocal jazz set includes VoiceDance by Greg Jasperse as well as arrangements of MLK and God Only Knows. Also featured on the program will be Ubi Caritas, which was composed for the marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton and first performed at their wedding in April of 2011.

Nova Singers will be joined by students from Project Sing! at each concert. Conducted by Stephen M. LaCroix, the Geneseo Madrigal Singers from Geneseo High School will perform two pieces alongside the Nova Singers.

Artistic Director Laura Lane says that “This is the most challenging program I’ve done with Nova Singers in many years. But I love this music! Every single piece is beautiful, exciting and virtuosic, either rhythmically or harmonically.”

Nova Singers, a professional vocal ensemble under the direction of Dr. Laura Lane, hopes to share our musical soul with you. Nova Singers is known for bringing a wide variety of choral music to its audiences, and for the beauty and charm the singers impart to their music.

Tickets will be available at the door. Admission is $18 for adults and $15 for seniors. Students are admitted free of charge. Nova Singers season tickets will still be available through this performance.

Theresa Caputo Live!
Star of TLC’s Long Island Medium

Peoria Civic Theatre
Saturday, April 20th 7:30pm

Tickets go on-sale Friday, February 8th at 10am

Theresa Caputo, psychic medium and star of the hit TLC show, Long Island Medium,
will be appearing live at the Peoria Civic Theatre on Saturday, April 20th at 7:30pm.
Theresa will give interactive readings to audience members throughout the show and will
also share personal stories about her life and her unique gifts. Tickets go on-sale
Friday, February 8th at 10am and can be purchased online at,
800.745.3000, or in person at the Peoria Civic Theatre Box Office. Tickets start at
$38.75 plus applicable service fees. Purchasing a ticket does not guarantee a reading.

Long Island Medium began its third season on TLC in September, following Theresa’s
life as a typical Long Island wife and mom, except for one distinct difference…her ability
to communicate with the dead. Since she cannot “turn off” this gift, messages can come
through at any time and the local car mechanic, manicurist or cashier at the bagel shop
may find themselves receiving a spontaneous reading from Theresa as she goes about
her daily life. The show also covers how Theresa copes with the special challenges that
her unique abilities create for her husband of 22 years, Larry, and her two children, aged
17 and 21.

Theresa has been a practicing medium for 10 years and is a certified medium with the
Forever-Family Foundation, an organization dedicated to connecting science with the
afterlife. She helps individuals find closure by connecting them with their departed loved
ones. For Theresa, this is not just her job... this is her life.
