ArtsLIVE Performance Series


Our intermission.

Founded on the high value we place on live arts experiences, the ArtsLIVE Performance Series—like everything else in life—has had to take a break as of March 2020. This is the first sustained break in nearly six decades of presenting professional cultural programming.

During this virtual intermission, plans are developing for future programming. Later this Fall Semester, details will be shared about both virtual and live concerts for 2021. In the meantime, we invite you to:

Mark your calendars.

In Spring Semester, we present a short series of Vanguard Virtual Concerts on these Sunday afternoons: February 14, March 7, and April 11.  For more information about each event and how to watch, visit our events page, where you can select events of interest. No sign-up is required. On the day of the event, simply click on the video link to watch.

Enjoy the arts virtually.

Many arts organizations—locally, nationally and even internationally—have stepped in with rich virtual programming opportunities. For some suggestions, check out our Virtual Arts Resources page.

Join our mailing list.

If you haven’t previously received email or announcements in the mail from ArtsLIVE, you can share your contact information with us.

Stay healthy.

Follow the current advised COVID protocols, but attend to your emotional health as well: when you can, take a walk, call a friend, listen to music. And hardest of all, be patient.
