Collaborations with departments from humanities, laboratory sciences, and social sciences will inform the performances of Galileo and Pride and Prejudice. Faculty from the departments of music and theatre are also busy planning the spring musical, Into the Woods.

Davidson College Artist Series
The Artist Series began more than 70 years ago as a series of performances by visiting musicians and choral groups. Since 1975, the students of Davidson College have been very involved and primarily responsible for the series, handling ticket sales, artist selection, publicity, and the preparation and clean-up of all events. In 2002, the series was named the C. Shaw and Nancy K. Smith Artist Series in honor of C. Shaw Smith, the first College Union Director of Davidson College.
Today, the C. Shaw and Nancy K. Smith Artist Series is proud to offer an ever-growing series of entertainment, culture, and quality. The faculty and students who participate in the Union Board Artist Series Committee take great pride in selecting and presenting a series that students, faculty, staff, and members of the surrounding community can all enjoy and experience with their friends and family members.
This season, Canadian-based ScrapArtsMusic and The Peking Acrobats are just two of the amazing performing arts groups who will grace the stage of the Duke Family Performance Hall as part of the Artist Series.
Season subscriptions are on sale until September 21. Season ticket holders save 33% off the individual ticket price. Individual tickets for each performance are also on sale now. All seats are reserved and cost $20 each for general public patrons.
