The College of Communications and the Arts' Arts Council is proud to announce the performance schedule for the Fall 2019 Fine and Performing Arts Series. Throughout the semester, students, faculty, alumni, and the community at-large are invited to attend a collection of talented student performances as well as musical and artistic exhibitions from esteemed artists and musicians.
Opening the Fall 2019 series, the Arts Council is proud to welcome selections from Mounds, Piles, and Massings to the Walsh Gallery from September 9 until October 19. An art exhibition curated by Greg Leshe in collaboration with the Pierro Gallery of South Orange, Mounds, Piles, and Massings surveys and explores the nature, foundational theme and human tendency to construct archetypal forms known as mounds or piles as organized masses of materials. Later in the semester the Walsh Gallery will feature New World Water, an exhibition curated by Samantha Becker, a graduate candidate in the M.A. in Museum Professions program in the College of Communication and the Arts. Featured work from participating artists reflect on humanity's turbulent relationship with water, while considering the sociopolitical reformation that is necessary to restore the right of water to the whole of humankind in this moving collection. New World Water runs from November 4 until December 13 in the Walsh Library.
The Arts Council Fall Series will also feature many live musical and theatrical performances from a wide array of Grammy winning musicians and world-class performers. Featured as part of this fall's line-up is Giacomo Puccini's dramatic masterpiece La boheme: Concert Version, a collaboration between the MidAtlantic Symphony Orchestra, Soloists, and the Seton Hall University Chamber Choir under the direction of Assistant Professor Jason Tramm. The event is a one night only performance on November 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the South Orange Performing Arts Center and is co-sponsored by the Seton Hall Charles and Joan Alberto Italian Studies Institute and Classical Concert Series.
The Seton Hall University Theatre will be putting on a production of Much Ado About Nothing as part of this fall's line-up.
The Fall Series also features a dynamic selection of other musical and theatrical performances. Among them is the classic Shakespeare comedy Much Ado About Nothing, the timeless comedy overflowing with wit, humor, and romance where opposites really do attract. The Jazz 'n the Hall series will welcome the Lionel Hampton Big Band back to the SHU community on October 29. On November 2, the series will present the United States Army Veteran All-Stars as they perform a collection of jazz favorites and patriotic staples in a memorable tribute to veterans of all wars.
Come Christmastime, the Arts Council will feature three distinct holiday performances, including the annual Seton Hall University Winter Concert, The Christmas Cabaret, and Christmas in Lessons and Carols which invites all members of the Seton Hall community to join together for an ecumenical service that combines music and scripture in Seton Hall's historic chapel for one of the most cherished events of the year.
