Modlin Center for the ArtsModlin Center for the Arts


The Modlin Center cherishes bringing people together to celebrate the arts. Unfortunately, bringing people together is something we cannot do at this time. In an effort to support social distancing measures recommended by the CDC, and with the health and safety of our campus and community as our top priority, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to suspend all remaining performances and events scheduled in the 2019-2020 season. We appreciate our dedicated student artists, patrons and supporters, volunteers, faculty and staff, and visiting artists, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back for an exciting 2020-21 season.

The Modlin Subscriber credit-to-your-account benefit is now available to all ticket buyers. If you choose, the value of your tickets may be credited toward the purchase of future Modlin Arts Presents events. If you would like a credit to your account, please complete this form (https://forms.gle/XnsYpDzZ3QeZtcoD8), or contact the Modlin Center box office via email at modlinarts@richmond.edu or by phone at (804) 289-8980 by 5pm on Monday, March 23, 2020. If you do not wish to receive an account credit, we will begin automatically issuing refunds on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 with no additional action required. While the Modlin Center box office windows will be closed through the remainder of the season, staff will be answering email and voicemail messages. Thank you for your continued patience as we navigate this evolving situation. 

While the Modlin Center may be closed, the show must go on. We have compiled an ever-growing list of organizations offering free online visual and performing arts experiences.

If you have suggestions for this list, please email modlinarts@richmond.edu with the subject line “Online Arts” or tag us on Facebook or Twitter with #onlinearts.

 


“The standout vibraphonist of his generation.” — The New Yorker

Heralded as “one of the most important young artists in jazz” by the Los Angeles Times, educator, vibraphonist, and composer, Stefon Harris’ passionate artistry and astonishing virtuosity have propelled him to the forefront of the jazz scene. His long list of accolades includes a Doris Duke Artist Award in 2018, an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Jazz Album in 2014, four GRAMMY® Award nominations, Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award, and numerous critics poll awards. Harris reunited his group Blackout for Sonic Creed, their first recording since 2009.
