Nothing can take the place of experiencing a live concert, theatre production or dance event on stage. Technology can put just about everything at our fingertips, but it can't take the place of interacting with artists, actors, dancers and musicians; coming face-to-face with artistic creations, watching a play come to life, hearing and feeling the sounds of a musical performance.
Join the Micky Elliott College of Fine Arts each season as we present nationally acclaimed artists, award-winning plays and lively choreography. Through our line up of concerts, performances and exhibitions, you will feel a personal connection with the arts, one that stays with you in the experiences you take beyond our performance venues.
We're excited for our line up! View the calendar that meets your interest:
- Art exhibits
- Music concerts
- Theatre and dance performances
- University Series (touring events)
- Children's Performing Arts Series (touring events)
