The concert will take place Tuesday, July 25 at 7 p.m. at the Kossen Auditorium, located in Poindexter Hall on the campus of Mississippi University for Women.

“We appreciate the generosity of the Threadgill family for honoring Leslie Threadgill with this endowment supporting arts and educational opportunities for the local community on our campus,” said Andrea Stevens, executive director of development and alumni at The W.

Known for their extraordinary harmonies and captivating stage presence, the Modern Gentlemen have garnered international acclaim for their exceptional vocal talents.

With an extraordinary origin as members of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame band the Four Seasons, Landon Beard, Todd Fournier and brothers Brian Brigham and Brandon Brigham were almost predestined to become the modern voices of yesterday. They all were handpicked by the legendary Frankie Valli and thrilled audiences all over the world with the music icon. They have had the honor to share the stage with many of their musical heroes including the Beach Boys, Manhattan Transfer, Smokey Robinson and most recently opening for Lionel Richie. They have performed for presidents of the United States and for Prince William of Wales at the esteemed Arts Club in London. The Modern Gentlemen have performed on the world’s biggest stages including Royal Albert Hall with the London Symphony Orchestra, the O2 Arena, Hampton Court and BBC Proms in the Park for more than 40,000 people.
