Dear Jorgensen Patrons,

Greetings from Jorgensen Center in the heart of UConn Storrs campus. Thanks to you, our loyal patrons, we successfully completed the Fall 2022 season with a wonderful array of performances by prominent and internationally renowned artists. This spring, we are excited to continue our mission of bringing the best of music, dance, and entertainment to our greater Storrs community. 

Jorgensen celebrates the return of family programming with three events specifically for families: Llama Llama Red Pajama (Jan 22), Popovich Comedy Pet Theater (Feb 19) and Harold and the Purple Crayon (March 19). In addition, Jorgensen continues to build back its contemporary dance program, with contemporary ballet troupe BalletX (Feb 2) and the incomparable Martha Graham Dance Company (March 23). 

We expect to fill the house with critically acclaimed blues guitarist and singer, Joanne Shaw Taylor (Feb 17), Comedian Jo Koy (Feb 18), and the 2021 winner of The Voice, Girl Named Tom (April 14). Under the baton of Maestro Theodore Kuchar, the Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine (Feb 13) travels to Storrs for a special performance with featured guest and artist UConn SFA faculty member and renowned violinist Dr. Solomiya Ivakhiv. In addition, Jorgensen continues its celebrated Lenard Chamber Music Series, featuring Phaeton Piano Trio (March 2) and Pavel Haas Quartet (March 11). 

As you can see, we've got a diverse line-up of the world's most celebrated artists to entertain both the UConn and Storrs communities, and beyond. 

Jorgensen continues to pay homage to UConn Women's Center's 50th Anniversary this academic year, with the Connecticut Women Artists Council Show in the Jorgensen Gallery. The exhibt runs from January 13 to March 11, and we invite you to join us for our opening reception on Thurs, Feb 2 at 6:00 pm prior to BalletX

We look forward to seeing you this spring and, as always, stay safe, stay healthy, and stay entertained!

Rodney Rock, Director
