Fisher Center’s 10th Anniversary Celebration Begins in April

This April, Bard College is launching a yearlong 10th Anniversary celebration of the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts with a month of music, theater, and dance. Featuring special guest artists and Bard students and faculty, the April programs will spotlight the vital role Bard’s Fisher Center plays in the cultural lives of both Bard students and all those who enjoy its public performances. The programs will also display how the Fisher Center acts as an incubator for performing artists both young and established, giving them a home in which to create, and giving audiences a rare opportunity to witness the birth of many extraordinary works.

April highlights include an all-Wagner concert performed by the American Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leon Botstein (April 19 and 20); a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 performed by members of the American Symphony Orchestra, Bard Conservatory Orchestra, and Longy Conservatory Orchestra (April 26 and 27); a production of Euripides’ The Bacchae (April 11–14); comic works by Jack Ferver and QWAN Company (April 3); Sō Percussion and Students Concert (April 12); the 2013 Bard Faculty Dance Concert (April 26–28); and an evening with author Neil Gaiman and singer-songwriter Amanda Palmer (April 6).

“Ten years ago, through the vision of the late Richard B. Fisher, Bard College opened a performing arts center designed to make a difference both to the Hudson Valley and to the role the arts play in our society. Bard is proud of all that has developed in the Fisher Center over the past decade, and thanks the many patrons, performers, and audiences—including those within the Bard community—who helped the Fisher Center earn its worldwide reputation for excellence and innovation in the arts,” said Bard College President Leon Botstein.
