The Performing Arts Series’ 2022–2023 season is a dynamic line-up that continues our mission to highlight new and diverse programming across performing arts disciplines. Our 103rd season also examines exciting themes: the conclusion of our “year of the cello” celebrating the centennial of Pablo Casals’ 1922 performance on our series; music in honor of composer Sergei Rachmaninoff’s 150th birthday; and an exploration of healing and technology’s intersection with the arts. 

Email and social media will be our primary mode of communication, so please sign up for our mailing list or like us on facebook.

We look forward to continuing to engage both our in-person and streaming audience this season. Tickets go on sale at 10:00 AM on the following dates:

  • September 6 for PASS Members
  • September 13 for Middlebury ID card holders
  • September 15 for the general public

Thank you and we’re looking forward to being all together!

    Choral Chameleon Chorus makes its Vermont debut with a sound bath: a unique, healing choral experience.

This intensive sound experience is designed to wash over the body for healing, peace, and restorative contemplation.
