What is your favorite performance that you've seen at The Clarice?
The School of Music’s Appalachian Spring, performed by the UMD Symphony Orchestra with movement design by Liz Lerman, was one of the most beautiful performances that I’ve ever seen. I literally had chills and felt so proud to be a part of The Clarice, where such stunning, innovative and daring art happens.
