Performing Arts Returns to Dowd Theatre

 Performing Arts Returns to Dowd Theatre

04/24/2014 

SUNY Cortland’s Dowd Fine Arts Center will continue to host various events as the College’s academic year draws to a close.

Remaining performances this semester will be held on the Dowd Fine Arts Main Stage Theatre and are free and open to the public.

On Saturday, May 3, students will perform a Dance Demonstration at 3 p.m. The program will feature tap, jazz, contemporary, ballet and theatre dance techniques. New student choreography will be introduced, along with dances from performing arts course work.

The Choral Union will present a concert at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 6.

The Dowd Fine Arts Center re-opened in January for the College’s spring semester. During construction, the College’s concerts, plays and musicals took place at locations elsewhere on campus and off campus.

As recently as earlier this month, six performances of Leonard Bernstein’s classic operetta “Candide” were staged in the Performing Arts Department’s temporary main stage theater in Old Main Brown Auditorium.

Better lighting, new seats and sharper acoustics are just a few of the features in a new Dowd Theatre. Full theatrical productions by the College’s Performing Arts Department will resume in the Dowd Fine Arts Center in the fall.

For more information, contact the Performing Arts Department at 607-753-2811.
