POTSDAM -- Legendary country vocalist LeAnn Rimes will perform an acoustic set on Friday, April 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the Helen M. Hosmer Concert Hall at SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music.

Rimes first hit fame when she was 13 and her rendition of "Blue” became a Top Ten hit, making her the youngest country music star since Tanya Tucker.

She released “You Light Up My Life: Inspirational Songs” in 1997 which had more of a country-pop sound. Rimes has since released many other albums, and won two Grammys and three ACMs.

The Community Performance Series has postponed its May 2 concert featuring Broadway vocalist Kelli O’Hara. The performance has been rescheduled for Oct. 23. Current ticket holders are currently being contacted to discuss further options.

“We’re in a business where things like this do happen, but it’s still disappointing, and we are sorry to have to postpone. Fortunately, Kelli O’Hara is still excited to perform in Potsdam and we were able to agree on a replacement date for next season. In addition to the rescheduling, we are extremely excited to announce that LeAnn Rimes will be performing in Potsdam. All-in-all, this has been a fortunate turn of events,” said CPS Executive Director Jason L. Dominie.

Tickets are currently on sale for both performances, at They can also be purchased from the CPS Box Office, Monday through Friday, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., either in-person or over the phone at (315) 267-2277.
