Trevor McBane to present workshop and concert for third annual Performing Arts Series


WILBURTON, OK (Jan. 31, 2019) – Eastern Oklahoma State College’s Music Department will host Trevor McBane for its third annual Performing Arts Series.

McBane will present a songwriting course Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 2 p.m. in the Johnnie Wray Theatre in Pratt Hall in Wilburton. This event is free and open to the public.

On Thursday, Feb. 7 at 6 p.m., McBane will present a concert in the Student Center Ballroom in the Tourtellotte Student Center in Wilburton. Concert tickets start at $10 and will be sold at the door. Upgrading to VIP will cost $5 more and feature perks including a meet-and-greet with McBane after the show.

McBane, a 2017 graduate, became widely recognized during his appearance on the 2018 season of American Idol.

After impressing the judges with his rendition of Zac Brown Band’s “Colder Weather,” McBane progressed to the show’s Hollywood rounds where he advanced to the top 24. During his stint, McBane often received praise by the judges and was even complimented by Bishop Briggs after their duet of her top 10 single “River.” McBane is pursuing a career as a recording artist and is currently working on his debut album.

“It truly is an honor to welcome Trevor McBane back for our Performing Arts Series,” said Hendrix. “Many of us at Eastern felt Trevor was destined for greatness and it did not take him long at all after graduating to prove us right.”

The show will be opened by the Oklahoma Kids and Eastern Expressions, Eastern’s student-led popular music band. Other VIP perks include a signed poster, souvenir lanyard and front-row table seating. All tickets include a free appetizer bar and access for two children under six years old.

The Performing Arts Series was established in 2016 as a scholarship fundraiser for Eastern students. The goal of the series is to expose Eastern students and the community to high-quality live performances that will stimulate their minds, enhance their cultural knowledge, and excite their emotional engagement in learning. All event proceeds are directly applied to student scholarships.
