Manassas, VA, Wednesday October 12, 2016—The plucky and soulful mandolin player Sierra Hull brings her original, wistful bluegrass and folk-pop tunes to the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas on November 13 at 7p.m.

Recognized at age 11 as a mandolin prodigy, and a recent recipient of IBMA’s mandolin player of the year award, Sierra Hull continues to astonish audiences and critics alike and collaborates with leading bluegrass and country musicians including Béla Fleck and Alison Krauss. A tone-true vocalist and performer of the highest order, she "plays the mandolin with a degree of refined elegance and freedom that few have achieved" (Béla Fleck).

Hull began playing on the Grand Ole Opry stage at the age of eleven. And before her twentieth birthday, she had recorded two albums, played at the White House, Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. She became the first bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship at the Berklee College of Music.

"Talent like hers is so rare" (Alison Krauss). Don't miss Hull's optimistic and powerful meditation on the mandolin!

About the Hylton Performing Arts Center
Dedicated to bringing a world-class performing arts venue to the Prince William region, the Hylton Performing Arts Center was born out of a partnership among Prince William County, George Mason University, the City of Manassas, the Commonwealth of Virginiaand individuals and businesses in the private sector. Soaring more than nine stories and boasting a stunning mix of copper, glass and masonry, the 85,000-square foot center is home to two unparalleled performance venues for local arts groups and performers from around the world, as well as university-related activities. Modeled after the intimate European opera houses of the 19th century, Merchant Hall is a 1,123-seat multipurpose proscenium theater, which is encircled by 27 private boxes that rise three levels. The Gregory Family Theater is a flexible, 4,400-square foot space that can be configured for many different types of performances and events. In addition, the Didlake Grand Foyer, with its sweeping staircase, provides an ideal setting for community, corporate and social events. The Hylton Performing Arts Center, the only building of its kind in the area, has quickly become the cultural hub of Prince William County and the surrounding communities and is a shining example of civic collaboration and commitment to the arts.
