Main Stage Series 2016-2017

The Main Stage concert series is the flagship series of Tryon Fine Arts Center. Each year, performances on the Veh Stage are selected to appeal to a variety of audiences with multiple artistic disciplines represented.
The series provides the opportunity for the Foothills to enjoy first class performers in the intimacy of a 315-seat theater at competitive prices. The Main Stage Series can be purchased as either individual or season tickets.
Regardless of whether you attend all or just one event, there is something for you!
The 2016-2017 Main Stage series was supported by Parsec Financial.

Thank you to all our patrons, volunteers, sponsors, and artists for a wonderful year on the Veh Stage. The 2017-2018 Main Stage Series will be announced soon.
