Builded he New Hampshire glorious
From the borders to the sea;
And with matchless charm and splendor
Blessed her for eternity.
Hers, the majesty of mountain;
Hers, the grandeur of the lake;
Hers, the truth as from the hillside
Whence her crystal waters break
Dr. John F. Holmes

The Soul Patrol is rolling into Concord, NH! Taylor Hicks, 2006 American Idol winner is bringing his own soul-blues music to the Capitol Center for the Arts.


Opened in 1927, the Capitol Theatre was a prime stop on the Vaudeville circuit, and, later, Concord's premier movie house and concert hall. Over the years, however, the theater slipped into disrepair and in 1989 it was closed.

With $4.2 million raised in support by the newly formed, non-profit Capitol Center for the Arts, and 250 volunteers contributing over 3,000 hours to paint and restore the Egyptian-motif artwork, the renamed theater was opened in November 1995. The Chubb Theatre was named in recognition of the project's largest benefactor, Chubb Life.

The 1,310-seat theater is now equipped to present many of today's lavish Broadway shows. It has been modernized with new heating, air conditioning, electric and plumbing systems, handicapped accessibility including an elevator, a new lobby and vestibule, computerized box office system, updated backstage facilities and restored seats.

The Capitol Center's mission is to be a resource for the entire community. Accordingly, the Center has presented a wide mix of high-quality events, including Broadway shows, dance performances, pop and country stars, family shows, international performances, school-time shows and business conferences and seminars.

Today, the Capitol Center for the Arts is the largest and most successful performing arts center in New Hampshire and has helped position Concord as a cultural destination. Its richly varied programming attracts diversified audiences. Broadway, ballet and country & western fans alike travel from all over New England to attend performances at the Capitol Center.

The Capitol Center educational programs attract some 25,000 school children a year from throughout New Hampshire. Educators and parents prize the school-series performances, teacher workshops, outreach activities and symposia on such topics as racism and intolerance. Working with local and state educators, the Capitol Center has successfully linked the school series to statewide curricula goals, making the programming even more valuable. Tickets and rental rates are kept affordable, subsidizing nonprofit organizations and school children.





Each year, approximately $10,000 in tickets are donated to organizations serving disadvantaged children and families, including the Concord Boys and Girls Club, the Concord Housing Authority, Child and Family Services, the Friends Program, Merrimack Valley Day Care, The Children's Place and the Senior Companion Program.

The Capitol Center also houses The Governor's Hall, a full-service function room that can accommodate up to 350 guests, and the adjacent Kimball House, a Victorian mansion featuring a stately, formal dining room and board room.

REVIEW AND MEDIA:



SOUL PATROL MEMORIES:

1. grimsby5
He was just awesome. There was dancing, interacting with the crowd, and an awesome, awesome stool song. OMG I think some of us nearly dropped during that stool song. You could have heard a soul patroler wheeze (I just hate the "pin drop" cliche)

He was out at the busses before the show, after the show, and again after the show, signing stuff and just talking to us. Just talking and laughing with us. So very cool.

2. Littleone

It was very mixed. Lots of couples and of all ages. We were talking with a young couple (well young to me) of 27 years old and they love Taylor. Said they couldn't stand the music of today and both thought that in 10 years Taylor will be the most sought after artist out there.

3. MJ
His live show is fabulous. The tour ends in September, at which time he says he’ll be planning his next album.... I say forget Adult Contemporary and go for Adult Alternative with the next album. There’s no doubt in my mind Taylor could gain a broader fan base with the right material.
