[ARCHIVED] COLEMAN THEATRE PRESENTS ERNESTINE DILLARD WITH LONNIE LIGGITT

The tremendous vocals of Dillard combined with the talent of Liggitt on the organ and piano will create an amazing night of music on the stage of the historic Coleman Theatre.

Dillard, from Bixby, Okla., is perhaps best remembered for her April 23, 1995, performance when she electrified 11,000 mourners and a national television audience with her “God Bless America” medley during the Oklahoma City memorial service for the victims of the Murrah Building bombing.

For the past 15 years, Dillard has circled the globe using her voice to spread a message of unity and hope. She regularly sings as a part of the Salute to Seniors & Veterans Tour and in 2009 was featured at the National VFW Convention Patriotic Rally in Phoenix, Ariz.

Ticket prices are $20 adults, $15 seniors (65 and older) and $10 for students and children.

To purchase tickets or for more information, call the Coleman Theatre at 918-540-2425, visit the Web site at www,colemantheatre.org or stop by the box office window at 103 North Main in Miami. MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express are accepted.
