BOZ SCAGGS - 2013 Starlight Concert!


Misericordia University's proud tradition of summer arts and entertainment continues in 2013 with its annual Under the Stars Summer Arts Festival featuring performances by renowned artists in the University's outdoor Wells Fargo Amphitheater located in the center of campus.


We look forward to finding some of the best musical talent again to bring to our Back Mountain area for summer of 2014. Here is a look at this past summer.

with guest BRIA SKONBERG

The bold, expressive style of trombonist and vocalist, Emily Asher, shaped her place as a rising musical personality in New York City. Bria Skonberg is poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation, tagged by The Wall Street Journal as looking “like a Scandinavian angel, plays trumpet like a red hot devil, and sings like a dream.”

Wells Fargo Amphitheater
This is an outdoor venue located on the grounds in the center of the Misecordia University campus, a short walk from multiple free parking areas. The Wells Fargo Amphitheater was constructed in 1999, and is the site of many campus events including fall convocation, as well as outdoor concerts and plays. A map of campus can be found under the campus virtual tour section. 

Showtime for all events is 8:00 pm. Gates open at approximately 6:45-7:00 pm.


With the intimate size of the Wachovia Amphitheater and expansive surrounding lawn, there is hardly a bad seat in the house!

  • Amphitheater seating is a flatstone and grass area built into the natural slope of the rolling lawn which semi-circles the stage. Seating is enhanced with stadium seats and folding chairs. While the section is generally not reserved, actual seating placement is on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Lawn seating is the grassy expanse directly behind and to the sides of amphitheater seating and allows for a variety of views, although the seated line of site to the stage does diminish further back. The acoustics and ambiance remain excellent to make an evening of live music under the stars an enjoyable experience. Bring your lawnchair or blanket. 
  • Festival Table seating is limited, and is generally positioned on the concrete pad in front of the stage, with some flow-over on the side grassy wings or on the top view above the amphitheater. Tables are reserved seating marked with your party's name.

Ticket Gates on the grounds of the Wachovia Amphitheater may be color-coded to help ease the flow more efficiently into the different types of seating. When multiple gate entrances are posted, entering the through the gates indicated below can help you get to your seat quicker.
