Music, dance, theater, and more: Arts blossom in the spring
A festival that expands into downtown Sacramento, classic art portraits transformed into 3-D masks, the return of a renowned concert series, and the greatest scam ever to hit Broadway – all are part of Sacramento State’s Arts Experience for spring 2016.
The showpiece is Sac State’s annual Festival of the Arts, coming in mid-April and ranging from dance to lectures to films. It will include the popular U-Create! downtown street faire, offering art, music, and interactive experiences. Plus, the Sac State campus will become a giant playground for children and adults at Family Sunday Funday.
The Theatre and Dance season will kick off with performances by Sacramento/Black Art of Dance, followed by offerings such as the Tom Stoppard play Darkside, the Mel Brooks con artist comedy The Producers, and a Senior Dance Concert featuring students’ original choreography.
A jampacked music schedule will include the New Millennium Concert series with top classical performers, plus world music, jazz, concert band, opera, and choral performances. And all through the semester, the Art Department and the Library Gallery will exhibit works ranging from Renaissance to hip-hop, and a 3-D reinterpretation of classics such as Mona Lisa.
