    UCONN’S JORGENSEN CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS ANNOUNCES SPRING 2023 SEASON

    Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts on the UConn Storrs Campus is celebrating the best of music, dance, and entertainment during their upcoming spring 2023 season. Jorgensen celebrates the return of family programming with three events specifically for families: Llama Llama Red Pajama Live (Jan 22), Popovich Pet Comedy Theater (Feb 19) and Harold and the Purple Crayon (March 19).  In addition, Jorgensen continues to build back its contemporary dance program, with contemporary ballet troupe, Ballet X (Feb 2) and the incomparable Martha Graham Dance Company (March 23)

      

    Jorgensen expects to fill the house with critically acclaimed blues guitarist and singer, Joanne Shaw Taylor (Feb 17), Comedian Jo Koy (Feb 18) and the 2021 winner of The Voice, Girl Named Tom (April 14).  Under the baton of Maestro Theodore Kuchar, the Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine (Feb 13)travels to Storrs for a special performance with featured guest UConn SFA faculty member and renowned violinist Dr. Solomiya Ivakhiv. In addition, Jorgensen continues its celebrated Lenard Chamber Music Series, featuring Phaeton Piano Trio (March 2) and Pavel Haas Quartet (March 11). 

     

    “We’ve got a diverse line-up of the world’s most celebrated artists to entertain both the UConn and Storrs communities, and beyond,” said Rodney Rock, Jorgensen Director. “We’re just so thrilled Jorgensen will see the return of family programming and younger audiences.”  

    Jorgensen continues to pay homage to UConn Women’s Center’s 50th anniversary this academic year, with the Connecticut Women Artists Council Show in the Jorgensen Gallery. The exhibit runs from January 13 to March 11, with an opening reception on Thur, Feb 2 at 6pm prior to BalletX. Gallery Hours: Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri 10 am - 4 pm and Thu 1 pm - 4 pm, prior to performances and during most intermissions.  

    Connecticut Women Artists, Inc. is a premier art organization that has promoted and supported professional women artists since 1929. Beginning with a small group of some of the most

    outstanding American women artists of that era from central Connecticut, CWA has grown to what it is today: a statewide organization of 150+ highly accomplished artists working in a variety of mediums. 

    Tickets for all spring 2023 events go on sale Tuesday, January 3 at 10 am. Visit jorgensen.uconn.edu for the full list of events, programs, updated policies and procedures, and more.
