The Office of Arts and Cultural Programs' performing arts series, “The Schaefer Center Presents…” continues its 2018-19 season with performances by Stephen Stills & Judy Collins on Thursday, Nov. 8 and world-renowned, folkloric ballet ensemble Ballet Folklórico de México on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts. Stephen Stills & Judy CollinsNov. 8, 7pmOver 50 years ago, Stephen Stills met Judy Collins and their tumultuous love affair was immortalized by Stills with his composition “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” performed by Crosby, Stills & Nash on their landmark debut. Both artists would go on to shape modern music with visionary approaches, but Stills and Collins’ short fiery union remains a transformative era for the two artists. These music icons will pull from their rich catalogs and share warm and intimate stories from their journeys and the 1960s folk and Laurel Canyon scenes they helped build.
