Hett Virtual Events

Traveling SalvationThe Hettenhausen Center for the Arts used alternate platforms this season to entertain audiences in safe, innovative ways. Socially distanced crowds enjoyed the U.S. Air Force Band Starlifter and The Jorrells from their vehicles, drive-in style via FM transmission. The Traveling Salvation Show delivered an energetic, Neil Diamond tribute in a virtual concert to conclude #GivingTuesday on Dec. 1. On its YouTube channel, the Hett streamed a new “Campus Speaks” interview series, a “Soul of St. Louis” Black History Month concert on Feb. 23, and a “Women of McKendree” Women’s History Month event on March 30, featuring soprano Christine Brewer ’76.
