The Madison Center for the Arts is excited to partner with Arizona State University’s School of Music, Dance and Theatre in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts to serve as a new venue for the school’s musical concerts. Located in Central Phoenix, The Madison Center for Arts will host a number of the school’s Wind Symphony, Wind Ensemble, Chamber Winds, Philharmonia, Symphony and Chamber Orchestra performances, as well as provide free concerts and master classes to the Madison School District.
ASU’s music program traces its roots back over 100 years and is currently ranked among the top programs in the country. As one of the nation’s most comprehensive music programs, it attracts scores of talented musicians from nearly every state and abroad who bring a thirst for the arts, high performing standards and a drive for excellence.
“We are thrilled to partner with The Madison Center for the Arts to present large ensemble and chamber music performances in our community,” said Heather Landes, director of the ASU School of Music, Dance and Theatre. “ASU’s charter includes a charge to assume fundamental responsibility for the cultural health of the communities we serve, and these concerts enhance the arts offerings available in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area.”
The Madison is scheduled to host the ASU music performances from September 2021 through March 2022. General admission tickets for all ASU performances will be $12; students will receive free admission.
