And coming later this season…

Mark your calendars for Sunday, March 13th, 2022, as we celebrate our golden anniversary (!) with a gala performance welcoming back each of our beloved former directors—from our founder Gwen Gould (Artistic Director from 1971-1998); Dr. Andrew Megill (1998-2000); Michael Conley (2000-2015); Dr. Malcolm J. Merriweather (2015-2016).

The 2021-2022 season concludes on Sunday, May 22nd, with our Spring Concert, where we bring to Judson the hauntingly beautiful All-Night Vigil of Sergei Rachmaninoff—the very piece we were days from presenting when the 2020 COVID lockdown forced us to cancel our performance.  We’re excited to get a second chance to share this powerful and moving work!
