Tony Award and Golden Globe Award-winning singer and actress Bernadette Peters will dazzle audiences at 6 p.m. Saturday, June 23, at the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center on the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown (UPJ) campus. The concert, a Friends of the Performing Arts event, will benefit the Blackington Endowment for the Performing Arts in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center.

Bernadette Peters has an impressive list of theatre awards and
nominations. In June 1999, she earned her second Tony Award, her third Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award for her show stopping portrayal of Annie Oakley in one of Broadway's most popular musicals, the hit Broadway revival of Annie Get Your Gun. Miss Peters received both the Tony Award and Drama Desk Award for her critically acclaimed performance in Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit musical Song and Dance. She also has starred in a number of feature and television films, and in addition to numerous original Broadway cast albums, including the Grammy Award-winning Annie Get Your Gun, she has recorded four solo albums.

I am personally grateful to the Friends of the Performing Arts for
making this 10th anniversary celebration of the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center possible.
