UNC Greensboro today announced the lineup for the 2020-21 Concert and Lecture Series, an annual celebration of the arts that brings some of the brightest luminaries and performers in the arts to UNCG’s campus. 

The 2020-21 season features an Academy Award winner, a world-renowned author, and a Broadway legend of stage and screen, to name a few.

UCLS kicks off Aug. 28 with a conversation with Hollywood star Geena Davis. On Sept. 15, Margaret Atwood, author of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” will visit campus for a lecture about her work. 

In October, UNCG will host chamber orchestra Sphinx Virtuosi and cellist and singer-songwriter Shana Tucker.  

Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara will take the stage in January, and Malpaso Dance Company will perform in February. 

The series also includes a free artist talk with ​Denise Murrell​, associate curator of nineteenth and twentieth century art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The event will take place during the spring semester.

Season tickets for current subscription holders are on sale now. New season subscriptions will go on sale March 19. All season subscriptions purchased by April 1 will include an invitation to a reception with Daveed Diggs – actor, musician, filmmaker, and the original Thomas Jefferson of “Hamilton” – immediately following his appearance on April 9, which will conclude the 2019-2020 season.

Single-event tickets will go on sale June 1. 

The UNC Greensboro Concert and Lecture Series is one of the longest running event series of its kind in North Carolina. The series also provides invaluable student masterclass opportunities with artists who are working at the highest levels of their disciplines.

Financial support for the series is provided by presenting sponsors Joseph M. Bryan, Jr. and The Cemala Foundation; hospitality sponsor Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels; and underwriting sponsor Well-Spring.
