Performing Arts Series Society

For nearly 100 years, the Performing Arts Series has been bringing celebrated artists in chamber music, dance, and theatre to campus – to perform, inspire, and conduct residencies.

Not only does the Performing Arts Series enhance Middlebury’s curriculum and ignite cultural and creative exploration, it allows the local community to enjoy levels of artistry usually only available in major cities.

Since ticket sales cover only one third of the series’ operating costs, we rely on contributions to help support the work of bringing acclaimed artists and emerging alumni performers to campus. Members of the Performing Arts Series Society (PASS) provide much of this crucial support.
In appreciation for their patronage of the arts, members of PASS receive advance opportunities to purchase tickets, advance notice of special events, exclusive invitations, opportunities to meet artists, and more.
