Welcome to the 2023-24 Fine Arts Series.

Seemingly each year, the Rochester region experiences a snowfall dubbed “the Storm of the Century.” And then, the following year, we get another “Storm of the Century.” Not so special, right?

However, I can make you this promise: On April 8, 2024, we will all experience something in our own backyard that will truly be a once in a lifetime event: a Total Solar Eclipse. What makes it that much more special is that the SUNY Brockport campus is directly on the center line of the path of totality. Look for more details on events within these pages, and as we approach the Eclipse itself.

We are continuing to rebuild our Fine Arts Series in this post-COVID world. I am happy to report that this past season was an improvement over the one that preceded it, both in revenue and attendees. We can only hope that the 2023-24 season will be even better than last year, given some of the terrific productions and exhibits coming your way. We know that you are coming back because we are giving you something to come back to.

Whether it’s Sankofa, a play such as the Tony Award® and Pulitzer Prize Award-winning Proof, a special visit from the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, or an exhibition that focuses on social justice, there’s a lot happening on our stages and in our galleries. And it is all here for you to experience. We’ve even got Rochester favorite Ed Popil (Mrs. Kasha Davis) starring in The Prom.

Enjoy the show. Or shows. The more you see, the more you can save, with our subscription discounts.

Thank you,
Monica Brasted
Interim  Dean, School of Arts and Sciences
