Margaret Atwood, author of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” will visit campus Sept. 24.

UNC Greensboro has announced the lineup for the 2021-22 UNC Greensboro Concert and Lecture Series (UCLS), an annual celebration of the arts that brings some of the brightest luminaries and performers in the arts to UNCG’s campus. 

The 2021-22 season features an Academy Award winner, a world-renowned author, and a Broadway legend of stage and screen, to name a few. These artists were originally slated to take the stage as part of the 2020-21 UCLS, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

UCLS kicks off Sept. 24 with a conversation with Margaret Atwood, author of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” 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 Hollywood star Geena Davis will visit campus in February. Malpaso Dance Company will perform in April.

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. 

Season tickets are on sale now. Single event ticket sales will begin 90 days prior to each event.

UCLS 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.
