College of Fine Arts' University Series seeks programming input

April 20, 2018
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Do you like classical music? What about pop, rock, blues or jazz? Do you prefer an evening of modern dance or musical theatre? Is stand-up comedy more your style?

The Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts is seeking input in planning future programming for its University Series and Encore Events.

A survey seeking suggestions for the kinds of national/international touring acts audiences would like to see in Turner Auditorium will help provide direction for future seasons.

The 2018-19 University Series season is already in place. It includes the Reduced Shakespeare Company: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] on Sept. 11; the dynamic classical music ensemble SYBARITE5 on Oct. 18; five-time Grammy Award-winning Dailey & Vincent's Spirit of Christmas Tour on Dec. 11; the high energy Step Afrika! dance troupe on Jan. 25; and the contemporary high-octane Mexican string musicians the Villalobos Brothers on May 9. Encore Events include jazz great Branford Marsalis on Oct. 10 and The Purple Xperience, a Prince tribute, on Nov. 30. Some events are subject to change pending final scheduling.

Scheduling for the 2019-20 season will soon be underway. Access the survey at the following address to make your voice heard and to provide the guidance needed to make it another season you and your friends won't want to miss.
