Assia Ahhatt: A Musical Extravaganza
Take a journey across a world of genres with Assia Ahhatt and find yourself captivated by her magical prowess.
A music genius from the age of 5, Assia started with nothing but a violin and rose from the ashes of her childhood home in the war-torn country of Ukraine to be a world-class musician.
Hear modern classics as you have never heard them before, interpreted by one of contemporary music’s best violin soloists, in ASSIA – LIVE IN CONCERT. This musical extravaganza is part of special programming premiering on Public Television Stations across the country in June of 2019 (check local listings).
Although she is classically trained, Assia’s heart is in modern ballads. In this extravaganza featuring some of the artist’s favorite songs, she demonstrates her skills woven into a brilliant tapestry with background dancers, singers and Special Guests.
The concert features soulful renditions of classic American hits that have inspired Assia’s transcendent musical career, from Katrina and the Waves’ hit song, “I’m Walking on Sunshine,” and Secret Garden’s contemporary Christian tune, “You Raise Me Up,” all the way to Gloria Gaynor’s 1978 timeless classic, “I Will Survive,” and ABBA’s musical sensation, “Mamma Mia.” Assia delights audiences everywhere with her amazing takes on these classics and more.
This is one performance sure to entertain the entire family!

McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square seats 730 and has become a showplace for live performances.
Uptown’s only historic theater, McGlohon Theater was originally the First Baptist Church sanctuary. The venue was carefully restored and opened in 1980. With its stained glass windows and Byzantine dome, this historically designated space makes each event a memorable experience. McGlohon Theater features the orchestra (stage) level and the balcony level.
The theater is named in honor of the late, legendary jazz pianist Loonis McGlohon of Charlotte.
