Performing Arts Center season to highlight three musical genres

Author: Arts and Letters

The 2005-06 “DPAC Presents” season at the University of Notre Dame’s Marie P. DeBartolo Center for the Performing Arts focuses largely on three genres of music – classical, world and jazz – as well as modern dance, touring theater and bluegrass and popular music.

Highlights of the season include concerts by rock pianist Bruce Hornsby on Sept. 16 (Friday), Austria’s world-famous Vienna Choir Boys on Nov. 27, and Russia’s Kirov Orchestra on March 23. The line-up also features three “ND Presents: Live at the Morris” performances in South Bend’s Morris Performing Arts Center and the University’s first performing arts guest artist resident, classical pianist Leon Bates, who will perform with the South Bend Symphony Orchestra and in other community contexts.

A complete schedule of performances is available at the performing arts center’s newly revamped Web site, , which now offers online ticket sales, a search-by-date function and an interactive calendar that allows visitors to view all events scheduled at the facility on any particular day.

The performing arts center opened last fall and includes five separate performance venues – the Leighton Concert Hall, Decio Mainstage Theatre, Philbin Studio Theatre, THX-certified Browning Cinema, and the Reyes Organ and Choral Hall.
