It’s a packed week in the arts, with a diverse array of options to suit any fancy. The UW World Series has a music-themed weekend with Jon Kimura Parker on Friday night and Touré-Raichel Collective the next. Also, don’t miss the last film in the Climate Change and Nuclear Risks: A Speaker & Film Series presented by the Burke.
This week in the arts features an array of film, exhibitions, music and musical theater to enjoy—one of the highlights being “Sweet Charity,” the debut production of the new Musical Theater program.
Fall is a busy time for the arts on campus, with a dizzying array of performances and exhibitions to take advantage of.
Fall quarter has started, which means the weekly arts roundup is back in action. This week, the Burke is hosting The Big Draw and Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis performs at Meany Hall on Oct. 4.
Dance, opera, exhibition openings and the Roethke Reading fill this especially busy week in the arts. From the MFA Dance Concert to School of Music and Pacific MusicWorks’ production of G.F. Handel’s “Semele,” there’s plenty to see and do on the main stages.
This week, enjoy a bevy of events that range from the Painting + Drawing exhibition at the Jacob Lawrence Gallery to IMPFest at the Floyd and Delores Jones Playhouse.
The UW Dance Program presents an eclectic evening in its annual Faculty Dance Concert, where faculty members choreograph pieces that students perform. This year features pieces created by Jennifer Salk, Jürg Koch and new faculty member Rachael Lincoln.
The first order of business for the UW’s new degree in musical theater is not greasepaint or tap shoes but public outreach and finding talented, committed students.
