Richard F. Burkhardt Fine & Performing Arts Series

Southeastern Community College’s Fine and Performing Arts Series announced its first performances in the fall of 1966. In 2002, the series was renamed the Richard F. Burkhardt Fine and Performing Arts Series in memory of Burkhardt for his leadership in the musical and cultural enrichment of the community. The series, funded by the SCC Foundation, Inc., strives to increase cultural arts opportunities for area citizens at affordable ticket prices. A wide variety of offerings includes theatre arts, music and dance performances. Advance tickets can be purchased by calling the SCC Foundation at (910) 642-7141, ext. 260 or 320. Tickets will also be available at the door.

The Richard F. Burkhardt Fine and Performing Arts Series is made possible through the generous support of the SCC Foundation. Founded in 1968, the Foundation is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization that promotes and encourages support of Southeastern Community College.

This is music steeped in the legacy of the Louvin Brothers, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams, Sr. and others. You can count on classic, real country with a few old-time gospels. Add the funny, off-the-cuff quips between the two siblings, and this concert becomes a magnetic time-traveling journey to when a calmer rhythm reigned supreme. The Malpass Brothers toured with the late Don Helms, former steel guitarist for Hank Williams, have opened for music legend Merle Haggard on multiple tours and appeared on stages from the Shetland Islands to Ryman Auditorium to Merlefest.
