The Artist Series debuted at the Ent Center for the Arts on the UCCS campus in February 2018. This exciting new series brings world-class music, dance, and live performance to Colorado Springs.
The series debuted with a flourish in the Spring of 2018, featuring performances from such luminaries as Ailey II (from the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre) and prolific jazz great Branford Marsalis.
The ascent continued during the fall of 2018, as the Artist Series began its first full season. The season has featured an eclectic blend of masterful performers, ranging from innovative dance troupes (Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company), to legendary vocalists (Blind Boys of Alabama, Dianne Reeves), to renowned scientists and explorers (National Geographic Live), to a Grammy-winning pianist (Yefim Bronfman).
The Artist Series will close out its 2018-19 season with Grammy-nominated Jazz musician Vijay Iyer and Golden Globe nominated guitarist Kaki King.
The 2019-20 season and beyond will feature much of the same: highly-renowned, diverse, and compelling artists at the height of their talents.
