Weis Center's 30th anniversary season features more than 30 performances

The 2017-18 season at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts at Bucknell University once again includes more than 30 professional performances - including world music, classical, modern and world dance, Americana, jazz, bluegrass, and a Family Discovery Series. Ten performances are free.

As our patrons have come to expect, the Weis Center will bring artists from around the globe and across the United States.

Officially amazing.

In December 2015, Tripping ranked the Weis Center third on its list of The Best College Performing Arts Centers: Top 10. In May 2014, BestValueSchools also ranked the Weis Center third on its list of 25 Most Amazing University Performing Arts Centers in recognition of its mix of programming and community engagement.

When you attend a Weis Center performance, you will quickly realize that sharing this moment in time with hundreds of others will inspire, move and energize.

The Weis Center is a 1,200 seat performance hall that is both architecturally striking and acoustically exceptional.

For thirty years, we have presented artists who are committed to doing their very best work for our University and Central Pennsylvania audiences. In turn, we inspire our patrons to be actively engaged in the performance as it unfolds on stage.

Offering an annual series of more than thirty professional performances spanning a dozen genres, we have something for everyone.

Support the Weis Center with your gift today!
