Dear Friends, 

We hope this email finds you well. The health and safety of our patrons, employees and students continues to guide our decision-making as the University responds to the COVID-19 pandemic. In accordance with the University's recommendations and the adjusted programming schedules of our artists/content providers we have decided to suspend all of our events in the current season. If you have tickets to any event through July 1 we will be refunding your tickets to the credit card that was used to purchase your tickets. Refunds will be processed in the upcoming weeks in the chronological order of the suspended events.

We are in the process of rescheduling as many of these events as possible and are getting ready to release an exciting season of NEW events for next year, so please keep your eyes on your inbox for these announcements coming soon. In the meantime, we have some innovative ways for you to continuing engaging in the content we regularly provide while still practicing social distancing. We hope you will join us for one of the virtual events below by enjoying something you already love or taking the time to try something new!
