CU Presents announces its 2016-17 season

There’s something for everyone in CU Presents’ star-studded 2016-17 season lineup. As the Artist Series celebrates 80 years bringing world-class performers to Macky Auditorium, local favorites return and incredible new acts arrive. Season ticket sales begin Monday, March 28 at 10 a.m., and single tickets are available beginning Monday, Aug. 15. Tickets are available at cupresents.org or over the phone at 303-492-8008.

Dance lovers will cheer the return of the eye-catching MOMIX and the seductive, Spanish moves of Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana. Fans of world music can take in the joyous, diverse African beats of The Nile Project, a cappella jazz and blues from The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6, the lilting traditional Irish music of Danú, and a special holiday celebration with the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. Classical superstars abound this season, with solo performances from flutist James Galway, pianist Richard Goode, soprano Deborah Voigt and the sensational cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

This season also features five concert pairs by the Takács Quartet and a special performance by the young, up-and-coming Calidore String Quartet. The Eklund Opera program kicks off with an October performance of “Die Fledermaus,” a worldwide audience favorite. Plus, the beloved Holiday Festival offers four fantastic performances this December.
