The Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) has announced the lineup for the 2011-12 College of the Canyons Presents season.

For the second time in as many years, a Grammy Award-winning artist will perform at Opening Night, with legendary singer and songwriter Kenny Loggins taking the stage at the PAC on Friday, Sept. 16.

Kenny Loggins has enjoyed incredible success over the past four decades, having continually been celebrated from his work as an accomplished singer and songwriter; guitar player; one half of a legendary country-rock duo; a massively successful solo artist; a pioneer of the smooth jazz genre; a reigning soundtrack superstar; and an amazing live performer who has made an impact with music fans of all generations.

With 12 platinum albums, and four decades worth of chart-topping hits -- including "I'm Alright," "This Is It," "Danny's Song" and "What a Fool Believes" -- Loggins will now bring his dynamic sound to the PAC main stage.

Other acts and artists highlighting the 2011-12 PAC season include: Grammy Award-winning vocalist Dionne Warwick, comedian and Saturday Night Live alum Martin Short, Travel Channel's "No Reservations" host Anthony Bourdain, legendary pianist Roger Williams, Ozomatli, Second City, Momix "Botanicum," Tao: The Art of the Drum, "101 Years of Broadway," "Charlotte's Web," "The Mask Messenger" and Rennie Harris: RHAW.

"There are so many great artists that will be part of the upcoming COC Presents season," said Adam Philipson, PAC managing director. "Of course, we are all thrilled about Kenny Loggins and our other talented headliners, but what's most exciting about this season is the fact that almost every performance will include additional opportunities for students and community members to connect with visiting artists and acts.

"From special receptions to intimate jam sessions, and student bus-in events to master classes, patrons of the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center will have a variety of unique opportunities to experience the season," said Philipson.

The 2011-12 PAC schedule will offer shows spread across six series selections: Chancellor's Choice, Great Performances, In Motion, Almost Free Family Series and the all new Sounds of Latin America series and SCV World Music Concert Series.

As in years past, the PAC will also host a number of College of the Canyons theatre, music and dance department productions, as well as community group performances.

PAC series subscription sales begin at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 15, while individual tickets for Kenny Loggins, Dionne Warwick, Martin Short, Ozomatli and all other performances go on sale at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 16.

Tickets can be purchased online, over the phone or in person at the PAC box office. It's recommended that patrons plan to purchase their tickets early for Kenny Loggins, as Opening Night at the PAC sells out fast.

The Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center is located at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, Valencia 91355.
