2017-18 Season: The Schaefer Center Presents...

Join us for a series of eight carefully selected performances designed to entertain, enrich and inspire!

A cornerstone of any great university is a strong and thriving visiting artist series featuring performers who “bring the world to Boone”—by uplifting us and taking us on a voyage of discovery: broadening our understanding, shaping our perspective, building global awareness and “opening windows” on a changing world. “The Schaefer Center Presents…” supports the university’s teaching mission by presenting world-class performances that bring classroom learning to life, while contributing in a significant way to the cultural landscape of our region.
