The mission of the Lied Center is to engage audiences and artists through presentation, education, research and service. In addition to presenting outstanding performances, we work with artists and educators to enhance the arts experience by offering workshops, lectures, master classes and collaborative experiences. We offer engagement and education opportunities for children, adults, teachers and university students on topics ranging from politics and history to music, dance and instruments.

Last season, we provided many opportunities for children in our community including:

  • • Free school performances for more than 6,800 children.
  • • A behind-the-scenes look at the Lied Center for more than 600 students at 3rd Grade Theatre Arts Day.

You can ensure these opportunities continue by becoming a Friend of the Lied.
