A MESSAGE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
This season's focus on future makers and ways to make art together while making a difference will be particularly evident on November 1st when we welcome 400 fellow Pennsylvania arts and humanities professionals to the center for a statewide convening. I encourage you to click the link below to learn more about this essential and inspiring summit. After that impressive start, November continues its creative course. From a best-selling author to a premiere brass ensemble, our Presenting Series events offer a wide range of art to appreciate. Music Department performances enchant, excite, and move us with the sounds of strings, Jazz, and wind instruments. You can look into the future with the Department of Theatre's presentation of a contemporary sci-fi musical. Thank you for connecting with us. With gratitude, Mark Fitzgerald Wilson
