Wylie & the Wild West

Wylie Gustafson is an American Original—a gifted singer, songwriter, rancher, horseman, world-famous Yahoo!®yodeler, and leader of Wylie & the Wild West. Wylie is a real life cowboy born into a 4th generation ranching family on the empty sprawl of Northern Montana. He celebrates his unique rural perspective as a prolific singer/songwriter with over twenty albums to his credit. As one music writer sums it up, "Forget everything you hate about modern country, this guy is all old school cool without being a tired period piece." Wylie & the Wild West are a winter tradition at the museum. Don't miss this show!

General admission seating. Doors open at 6:15 P.M. Concert at 7:00 P.M. Refreshments will be available.

TICKETS: $25 in advance; $30 at the door

Music From Men
What do you think you'll hear when you hear a men's choir? Barbershop? Sea Chanteys? Glee Club music? Folk songs? You will hear all that and more, when the Central Washington University Wildcat Chorus takes the stage. CWU's famous 60-voice "Wildcatters!" men's choir, under the direction of Dr. Scott Peterson, has been a perennial favorite at Yakima Valley Museum and is guaranteed to please!

The evening will include a buffet dinner and cash bar.
Doors open for dinner and drinks at 6:00 P.M. Program begins at 7:00 P.M.

TICKETS: $40 (includes dinner). General admission seating. Advance sales only.

NOTE: To accommodate the needs of the performers and caterers, the back door off the parking lot will not serve as an entrance. All must enter through the museum's main entrance and will be admitted into the Neon Garden promptly at 6:00 P.M.

Before that time, you can queue up in the Jewett Entrance Gallery. However, if you have difficulty using the museum's main entrance, please call the museum in advance for special entrance arrangements.
