The Leslie Farrell Threadgill Lecture and Artist Series Endowment will once again host musical group The Modern Gentlemen on the campus of Mississippi University for Women.


The special holiday show will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2 in Kossen Auditorium in Poindexter Hall.

“We are proud to have the Leslie Farrell Threadgill Lecture and Artists Series endowment to support arts and educational opportunities for the local community on our campus. We appreciate the Threadgill family for enriching so many lives, and we are delighted to welcome the Modern Gentlemen back to The W to celebrate the holidays,” said Andrea Stevens, director of Development & Alumni Relations.

Tickets for the event are limited to 200 and are free. However, tickets must be reserved by emailing or calling (662) 329-7148. Tickets can either be picked up in the Office of Development and Alumni in Welty Hall, or held at will call the night of the concert.

The Modern Gentlemen is a group consisting of Landon Beard, Todd Fournier and brothers Brian Brigham and Brandon Brigham, all former members of The Four Seasons with Frankie Valli.

The quartet has performed with the likes of The Beach Boys, The Manhattan Transfer, Smokey Robinson and most recently opened for Lionel Richie.

The group previously performed at The W in late July as part of the Threadgill Lecture Series.

The Leslie Farrell Threadgill Lecture and Artist Series Endowment, held by the Mississippi University for Women Foundation, was established in 1997 by the Threadgill family to honor Mississippi University for Women alumna Leslie Farrell Threadgill. The endowment supports programs to promote family and cultural influences, to advance the artistic and intellectual environment of the university, and to strengthen the cultural bond between the university and the public.
