Introducing the 19/20 Performance Series

Tributes to Gwendolyn Brooks, Ludwig van Beethoven, Pope Leo X, and Henri Matisse, an evening of contemporary Latina choreography from Ballet Hispánico, the artistry of Pulitzer Prize-winners Wynton Marsalis and David Lang, the eminent ballet and modern dance star Wendy Whelan, Grammy Award-winning Latin jazz pianist Pablo Ziegler, and top-notch hilarity by The Improvised Shakespeare Company and Britain’s masterful Ukulele Orchestra are a few of the exceptional events on our 2019/20 season—our 37th season presenting outstanding and eclectic programming, featuring internationally distinguished artists, emerging stars, and new works in chamber music, jazz, world stage, dance, theater, and family programming.

Our goal each year is to search for the very best and most diverse artists and productions the world has to offer, and bring them here to the Lehigh Valley. In addition to the performance schedule, the Williams Center for the Arts programs dozens of educational and community events annually, including pre- and post-performance talks, demonstrations and master classes, specially scheduled shows for families, and outreach programs in area schools, colleges, and community centers, many of which are free and open to the public. These events are announced throughout the year—join our email list to be the first to know when new opportunities arise to mingle with and learn from our visiting artists.
