Guest Artists

We are committed to bringing artists of note to campus and putting them in contact with our students in meaningful ways. While the guest artist visits are sponsored by the Performing Arts Series at least twice a year, they are often student initiated visits or even spontaneous opportunities presented because a distinguished guest was in town. Artists who participate in creating our major productions, and others who stop by for short visits, often facilitate master classes or Q-&-A sessions for the benefit of our students.
