Van Wert LIVE Loves to entertain you and it shows with the ALL NEW  20-21 Enrich Community Concert Series presented by Unverferth Dentistry and Roger and Kay Okuley. Since 1953, the Community Concert Series has made Van Wert an entertainment destination. Van Wert LIVE events continue this tradition at the Niswonger with four performances that will make you laugh, sing, and tug on your heartstrings.


It all begins with the laughter-inducing Southern Fried Chicks! These four fun-loving chicks have busted out of the hen house for a night on the town.  The "Cage-Free Comedy Tour” stars Etta May, Sonya White, Mia Jackson and Karen Mills with their hilarious take on Life and Love in the USA. Think “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” with better hair and bigger attitude! 

They Are Back! The Texas Tenors will add splendor to your Christmas season! This Niswonger Fan-Favorite is back as part of their 10th Anniversary Tour! Known as America’s Favorite Tenors and made famous on “America’s Got Talent,” Van Wert has loved them from the start and we celebrate their return with “Deep In The Heart Of Christmas.” 

Enrich your lives with the rare opportunity to experience the Prague Symphony Orchestra  in Van Wert! The Prague Symphony Orchestra is the official orchestra of the Czech capital, and boasts a well-established international reputation. Engage the senses with a Beethoven and Dvorak program of orchestral delight from the Prague Symphony Orchestra.

Direct from London, THE JIVE ACES are internationally renowned for their superb musicianship and spectacular stage show. Let loose with their energetic renditions of Swing, Jive and R&B classics.  The Jive Aces will hit you with fresh arrangements of favorites from Louis Prima, Cab Calloway, Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr.. Joining them on stage are the Hollywood Hotshots - Swing Dancers with sass and soul. Join us as The Jive Aces take entertainment to an entirely new level!
