PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Center for the Arts will present vocalist Laurie Rubin on Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. in the Brodbeck Concert Hall.

Rubin, mezzo-soprano, dreams in vivid color, despite being blind. Rubin has written an inspiring memoir, “Do You Dream in Color? Insights From a Girl Without Sight.” 

Rubin has performed with conductor John Williams and opera star Frederica von Stade. She has also performed in concert at the White House and the JFK Center for the Performing Arts.

“Blind since birth, Rubin seems to have an especially acute intuition about the power and subtleties of sound,” the LA Times said of Rubin.

New York Times critic Mark Swed praised her “compelling artistry,” “communicative power,” and the “earthy, rich and poignant qualities” of her voice.

This performance is made possible, in part, by the Dorothea Wilgus Pickard Fund.

Tickets for this event are $25 for general admission, $20 for children under 18 and senior citizens 62 and older, and $13 for UW-Platteville students with current ID. 

Tickets are available through the University Box Office, located in the lower level of Ullsvik Hall. Phone orders can be made by calling (608) 342-1298 or toll free at (877) 727-1CFA. Tickets are also available online at tickets.uwplatt.edu

The next event in the Performing Arts Series is Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue on Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. For more information on the Performing Arts Series and other performances, visit uwplatt.edu/cfa.
