Michael C. Rockefeller Arts Center and Visiting Artists, Ensembles and Speakers

The Michael C. Rockefeller Arts Center, a magnificent performing and visual arts facility, includes the 1,200-seat King Concert Hall, the 400-seat Marvel Theatre, the Bartlett Theatre, and two art galleries.

Over 165 public events are presented each season for the benefit of campus and community audiences.

SUNY Fredonia has a rich cultural life, not only because of the many artistic events produced on campus, but also because of a full schedule of visiting artists and speakers, many brought to campus by the arts center.

Each season, the center presents the DFT Communications Pops Series, three evenings of musical relaxation and enjoyment. Guest ensembles on the series have included Dave Brubeck, the Three Irish Tenors, the Four Freshmen, the Moscow Boys Choir, and the Boston Brass. Also appearing on this series has been the Western New York Chamber Orchestra with programs spotlighting students and vocalists from the School of Music and musical theatre program.
