With a theme of “Wanderlust,” our 64th season highlights cultural richness and diversity.

"Art brings us together as a family because it is an individual expression of universal human experience. It comes from that part of us that is without fear, prejudice, malice, or any of the other things that we create in order to separate ourselves one from the other. Art makes each of us whole by insisting the we use all of our senses, our heads and our hearts, that we express with our bodies, our voices, our hands, as well as with our minds."
~Jessye Norman: Strive to Live Artfully, commencement speech at Oberlin College & Conservatory, May 2016
