2021-22 Season

 

 

Welcome back to The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center! As we continue to build the future of arts education and performance, we’ll reunite creative artistry on stage with the palpable exuberance of a live in-person audience. Over the past 16 months, we kept creating, and the innovation and creativity happening in this integrated arts laboratory has inspired a season blending in-person, virtual and hybrid experiences.

The 2021-22 season marks the official launch of Arts for All, an initiative announced in April by University of Maryland President Darryll J. Pines. Representing a renewed commitment to the transformative role that the arts can play in the lives of all students, across campus and disciplines, as well as those in the greater UMD community, this program leverages the combined power of the arts, technology and social justice to address the grand challenges of our time. Our season features more than 100 events, highlighting student, faculty and professional work across music, theater, dance and more. You'll see performances that elevate marginalized and silenced voices and have the opportunity to engage with artists from around the world.

Explore the 2021-22 season!
