CANCELLATION NOTICE: Violet 3/25-3/27
We are terribly sorry that due to health issues among the VIOLET company, including multiple COVID cases, we regrettably have to cancel this weekend’s performances of VIOLET. We are deeply disappointed for the students to not be able to share their extraordinary work with you this weekend. We are very sorry for the late notice, as the company has been integrating understudies throughout the week in an effort to prepare, but we have just received additional news that made this decision necessary.

Because several students have been impacted by health issues, we will wait until Monday to assess the plan for next week. Currently planned performances are sold-out. If we are able to add performances to enable more audience members to share in the work, we will do so. Ticket holders of the cancelled performances will receive first notice of available seats for an additional show.

For out of town guests, particularly family and friends of the company, we are incredibly sorry to share this news and recognize the profound disappointment that it brings.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience and know you will join us in wishing the company health. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions, and thank you!

Perspective | 22 for ’22: Composers and performers to watch this year

Big congrats to Georgetown University Music Program Prof. Carlos Simon, featured in the Washington Post: "the very model of a modern major composer: an artist whose windows are thrown wide open to the world, and whose musical scope of late lands like a grand panorama of American life." Be sure to check out the great article and above-the-fold photo of him in Sunday's print Arts & Style section!

How Carlos Simon, Kamala Sankaram, the Living Earth Show and 19 more artists are changing the classical landscape.

Tomorrow night at 5:30 p.m. ET, join us for the world premiere virtual performance of "Here I Am" by Mélisande Short-Colomb (C'22), created by the The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics in partnership with the Georgetown University Department of Performing Arts. A native of New Orleans who began her studies at Georgetown in 2017 at the age of 63, Mélisande Short-Colomb is a direct descendant of Abraham Mahoney and Mary Ellen Queen who were among the 314 members of the group known today as the GU272, enslaved people owned and sold by the Maryland Jesuits in 1838 to rescue Georgetown University from insolvency and bankruptcy. More than an autobiographical chronicle, "Here I Am" weaves narrative, music, and imagery, inviting the audience on an experiential journey exploring Colomb’s loving and complicated relationship with the institution that enslaved her ancestors. Register now for the virtual performance: https://g.town/3ghkeEp
