Dear Friends,

UA Presents is a tremendous cultural and educational asset to all of us in Southern Arizona, and we are fortunate to be able to enjoy programming that is among the finest in the country. Our staff is hard at work putting your support to good use through engaging, diverse, and inspiring programming and outreach opportunities for students and community members all across our region. From world renowned artists such as the Martha Graham Dance Company, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and Bebe Neuwrith to intriguing cutting edge artists like Imago Theatre, Camille A. Brown & Dancers, and the Portland Cello Project, there is so much to experience this year.

What sets UA Presents apart is our integration between our guest artists and engaging educational and outreach experiences. A major partnership in this mission is the collaboration between UA Presents Education and the CFA in Schools programs.  This year, Beijing Guitar Duo are just one of the artists that will tour several local schools as well as conduct masterclasses for College of Fine Arts students. In addition to in-school and masterclass engagements, UA Presents is also dedicated to providing access to local young people through student matinee performances.  Many of these students will be experiencing their very first professional arts event.

The partnership between UA Presents and the College of Fine Arts educates and inspires young artists of today as well as future generations. Keeping world-class performing arts thriving in our community is our mission every day! Your role as a loyal arts patron, is integral to our ultimate success. 

We thank you for all of your past, present, and future support.
