Rockford's beloved Coronado Performing Arts Center has had their doors shuttered for months due to COVID-19. There are several concerts and shows still on the schedule for 2021, but the fate of them actually happening is still up in the air.

My point here is this; for months the Coronado has had no profits coming in, but they still have bills to pay, and more importantly, upkeep to maintain on a 93-year-old building. This is where you and I come in...

To help raise money to begin much-needed restoring on the Coronado's facade, a virtual concert will be happening this December that we can buy tickets for right now.

This virtual concert will feature pianist and songwriter Jim Brickman, who was already scheduled to play at the Coronado this December, he'll just be bringing his talents online for our viewing pleasure instead.

Here's everything you need to know:

  • WHAT: "Jim Brickman 'Comfort & Joy at Home LIVE!'
  • WHEN: Friday, December 18, 2020 at 9 p.m.
  • WHERE: Your comfy couch in front of the Christmas tree

This show will be an interactive concert experience, and there's a few different ticket packages to choose from, and two of them  include virtual time with Jim Brickman himself before and after the show...and you even get a stocking with goodies delivered right to your home!

If you love the breathtaking Coronado and beautiful Christmas music as much as I do, please consider buying tickets to this special show. Your patronage will insure the Coronado's beauty remains preserved for future generations of Rockfordians to love and enjoy!
