The world’s foremost all-male comic ballet company leaps into the center as part of its landmark 50th anniversary season featuring gems from their groundbreaking parodies that span the classical ballet canon. Founded in NYC in 1974, the Trocks has grown from its roots in late-late shows in off-off Broadway lofts to a global touring sensation. The company dances en travesti with razor-sharp wit and breathtaking pointe work. Revered by ballet aficionados as well as by those who don’t know a plié from a jeté, they are “a guaranteed hoot for people who know nothing of ballet and an absolute must for those who think they know the originals.” (Sydney Star Observer).  Click HERE for artist's website. LU Students attend for FREE, click for more info.

Graceland was Paul Simon’s comeback album, and the secret to its success on the road to winning the Grammy for Album of the Year was the vocal ensemble Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Dubbed by the late Nelson Mandela as South Africa’s “Cultural Ambassadors to the World”, they share a joy and excitement that breaks down barriers and unites everyone through the universal language of music. The group performs isicathamiya – a traditional music that originated with black mine workers in South Africa. During apartheid, the group chose to write peaceful music with messages of hope and joy. Over its long history, the group has recorded with Stevie Wonder, Dolly Parton, Sarah McLachlan, Josh Groban, Emmylou Harris, Melissa Etheridge and many others. Click HERE for artist's website. LU Students attend for FREE, click for more info.

Violinist Diane Monroe’s versatility and expressive artistry consistently bring audiences to their feet. Her visibility as a jazz artist began with her long-standing membership as the first violinist of the Uptown String Quartet and the Max Roach Double Quartet. In this piece, she crafts a musical memoir that bridges jazz, classical, and traditional African music, revealing an African-American violinist’s trials and triumphs. Written for violin, West African kora  (a long-necked, 21-string, plucked instrument), banjo, Western string quartet, percussion, and bass, the composition provides a framework for improvisations by each player and weaves a musical narrative that incorporates sound, visual art and spoken word. Click HERE for artist's website. LU Students attend for FREE, click for more info.
