The Arts Council, under the College of Communication and the Arts, kick starts another school year with animated and lively performing and fine arts programming scheduled for the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters. Events, held both on and off the Seton Hall University campus, will feature world-renown soloists, classic jazz performances, inspirational choral renditions and student-led productions.
Committed to supporting the integral role of the arts in higher education, the Arts Council contributes to the cultural vitality of Seton Hall University and its role in the greater community. It serves as the umbrella organization for the Classical Concert series, Jazz 'n the Hall, the Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute, Poetry-in-the-Round, Seton Hall Theatre, the Walsh Gallery and the Seton Hall Choral Program.
This season, Seton Hall Theatre will highlight the dynamic, persevering spirit of women amid challenging situations. "In each of this year's productions, we address a variety of challenges from being caught in a love triangle, yearning to fulfill the roles of motherhood while chasing a career, to a journey of redefining oneself after an abusive childhood," said Peter Reader, production manager and associate professor of theatre.
This season, pianist Richard Goode returns to the Classical Concert stage for his third appearance. Hailed for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth and expressiveness, Goode has been acknowledged as one of today's leading interpreters of Classical and Romantic music.
"In addition to Goode's tremendous expressive pianistic gifts and venerated artistry, he is someone for whom classical and romantic period music is a native language. One can trace a line of teachers and mentors from Goode all the way back to the great composers of those eras," said Dena Levine, director of the Classical Concert series and associate professor of music. "We are so lucky to have this major artist in South Orange to share with us through his music his lifetime of experience on the international stage."
