If you are a lover of the arts, Mercyhurst College is indeed the place.
With an exciting season scheduled at the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center (PAC), a new addition to the popular Guelcher Film Series, a new year in the Met Opera HD Live series and dozens of performances coming from the dance and music departments, there are always shows to be seen.
The season includes something for every preference. Acts range from classical music and dance, to jazz and blues, to cutting-edge contemporary performances.
Some highlights this year include the ever popular Yamato, the renown Paul Taylor Dance Company and the Grammy award-winning Robert Cray Band.
One new and exciting addition to the PAC program this year is the On Screen/In Person series that runs in conjunction to the Guelcher Film Series.
This series is composed of six movies throughout the year, in which someone who was involved with production of the film in question will come to the screening for discussion.
The first On Screen/In Person film is “Trust: Second Acts in Young Lives,” and it will run on Wednesday, Sept. 7, at 2:15 and 7:15 p.m.
One great thing that Mercyhurst provides for its students is free and reduced ticket pricing.
With a Mercyhurst ID, students can attend the Guelcher Film Series as well as all performances in Walker Recital
Hall for free and the PAC’s various other performances for a price ranging from $1 to $15.
With 15 performances in the PAC series alone, this year is one full of music and dance.
Take advantage of the opportunity that this center of creative activity provides.
