Curricular Connections

Curricular Connections is a program that encourages faculty members from a broad range of disciplines to include the performing arts in their classrooms, by providing funding for faculty to bring a class to an assigned Modlin Arts Presents performance. If you haven’t already discovered the breadth and variety of performances at the Modlin Center, we encourage you to explore the world-class music, theater, and dance engagements by visiting artists as enriching experiential learning opportunities for your students. Explore the Fall 2021 season below.

For other ways in which you might incorporate the arts into your classroom, please reference a calendar of free programs by the Department of Music, Department of Theatre and Dance, and Univeristy Museums on the Modlin Center website.  

Classroom Tickets

If you are interested in reserving a block of free tickets for students in your class, please complete the online classroom ticket request form. For questions or additional information, please email Jessie Buford, Box Office Manager. Class tickets are free for students this fall and each faculty member requiring the performance will receive up to two complimentary tickets. Class tickets are limited so submit your requests early.

Visiting Artist Residencies
We plan numerous artist residency activities that extend beyond the presentation of a performance. These residencies provide the campus and community with opportunities to interact with professional artists, gain insight into the creative process, and explore diverse perspectives and voices that enrich our lives. In addition to free public programs accompanying many of our performances, some of the visiting artists are available for workshops, discussions, and class visits. Email Shannon Hooker, Assistant Director, i
f you would like more information about how to bring an artist to your classroom. 

Health and Safety

Safeguarding the health and safety of our staff, artists, and audiences is first and foremost as we return to live performances. Get the most up-to-date information here.

“Mr. Mwenso, a Sierra Leonean vocalist, comes from the jazz world, but his messages arrive in the form of a growl, not a croon, and his band, the Shakes, is a thrashing hybrid whose concerts often take the form of a prewar revue. If a tap dancer arrives to blow your mind midsong, don’t say you weren’t warned.”   New York Times
