"...for an artistic journey that celebrates the human spirit, enriches our lives and broadens our understanding of the world, while also providing great entertainment! A cornerstone of any great university is a strong and thriving visiting artist series featuring performers who take us on a voyage of discovery—broadening our understanding, shaping our perspective and "opening windows" on a changing world. Great performances are available to students, faculty, staff, and community members through the series at a fraction of the ticket prices charged in other locations, making it one of the best deals found anywhere. We look forward to sharing the magic and power of the performing arts with you this season!"
