NEW WILMINGTON, PA – International concert and recording artist Maxine Linehan will bring “What Would Petula Do? A Tribute to Petula Clark” to Westminster College’s Will W. Orr Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, for the final show in the Celebrity Series 2018-2019 season.

Sponsored by UPMC Jameson and UPMC Horizon, “What Would Petula Do?” takes audience members on a musical journey of Clark’s career from her early, popular recordings of the 1940s through her mega-stardom in the 1960s, to her award-winning performances in film and on Broadway up to the 1990s. The show will feature such hits as “Don’t Sleep in the Subway,” “I Couldn’t Live Without Your Love,” “This is My Song” and “Downtown.”

Other credits for Linehan include a debut studio album, Beautiful Songs, which was a top 10 pick by USA Today and received a rave in The New York Times. In 2018, in response to gun violence and in support of the students of Parkland, Fla., and in collaboration with over 50 musicians, Linehan co-wrote and performed the original single “Living Proof.”

Tickets to “What Would Petula Do?” are available by calling the Celebrity Series Box Office at 724-946-7354 or by visiting
