The big event for Seton Hill for February is the performance of Sweet Charity. So get some friends, bundle up and go have a great time watching local live entertainment.

It is five dollars at the door and the price of admission includes snacks and soda. On Friday Feb. 26, 2016 there is an under 21 acoustic showcase, ten dollars at the door includes snacks and soda. Jill Sorrels said that “The Keynote Cafe was opened on the premise that people would enjoy live music in a small, intimate environment.” On why she chose Jeannette for the location Sorrels said “Jeannette is my hometown and had buildings available for a low rent at the time. It was a good place to experiment.”
