2017 Christmas Show Announced

The Clay County Fair & Events Center is pleased to announce the George Maurer Big Band Holiday Show presented by Farmers Bank on Thursday, December 14. The show, which will be held in the Clay County Regional Events Center, will begin at 7:30pm.

“George Maurer has performed multiple times at the Fair on our free stages, and it’s an honor to bring a Fair favorite back to Spencer for a Christmas show,” said Fair & Events Center CEO Jeremy Parsons. “For those looking for an affordable evening full of Christmas music with great musicians and vocalists, this is a night you won’t want to miss.”

Led by pianist/composer George Maurer, the George Maurer Big Band is a 16-piece ensemble that performs traditional jazz to swing, blues to bebop, and a healthy dose of originals, encompassing a range of Christmas favorites from Oh Tannenbaum to Baby, It’s Cold Outside. Just as varied as the great music they perform are the personalities of the musicians who perform it. It is that fun “family” style of relating…to each other, to the audience, to their instruments, that makes up a George Maurer Big Band experience.

Tickets for the concerts go on sale Friday, Nov. 3. Ticket prices for the show are $22 and $17 plus fees. Tickets can be purchased at the Events Center Box Office (M-F, 9a-5p), online at www.midwestix.com, or charge by phone 515-244-2771.
