Natalie Merchant with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra

UAB's Alys Stephens Center, and the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, are excited to present this amazing vocalist in concert. With a career spanning more than 30 years, singer-songwriter Natalie Merchant is one of the most respected recording artists around. Merchant is best known as lead vocalist and lyricist of the alternative-rock band 10,000 Maniacs, releasing two platinum and four gold records between 1981 and 1993. Merchant soon began her solo career with a self-produced debut album, Tigerlily (1995). She has collaborated with a wide range of artists, many of whom have previously performed at the ASC, including Wynton Marsalis, The Chieftains, and Mavis Staples. On this night, Merchant explores a new artistic path, performing songs that are composed for expanded musical ensembles and orchestras. Join us as she sings her familiar hits, plus new works, with full symphonic accompaniment by the ASO.
