WOW Concert Feat. Charlotte Sands

September 17, 2021 at 9 p.m.

WOW & Modlin Center for the Arts are excited to host the first WOW Concert feat. Charlotte Sands. Heavily inspired by 2000s pop-punk Charlotte Sands also takes lyrical inspiration from folk singer/songwriters, creating music with a message and stories of positivity. Her live shows have been described as "electric", as she easily establishes a bond with fans via her energetic and uplifting presence and bright sounds, quickly making a name for herself as a fierce spokesperson for Gen Z rock-n-roll. Join us in the Alice Jepson Theater for a night of great music! Click here for more information!
