Rozsa announces 2021-22 schedule

The Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts is even more excited than normal for school to be back in session.

A full schedule is on tap, including over 70 shows. Director Mary Jennings says some of the slate is an attempt to bring in what COVID-19 shut down. The first signature performance is Vieux Farka Touré, known as “The Hendrix of the Sahara,” and considered one of the top guitarists in the world. He was originally set for April of 2020.

Jennings says a holiday tradition is returning as well.

We’re bring the nutcracker back and that’s exciting! The Minnesota Ballet will come back with full costumes, [a] big set. The Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra will accompany the show, and then of course, there will be local dancers from the Superior School of Dance.

She says programming for a STEM oriented college is a nice challenge to have. Normally it involves finding ways to highlight the merger of arts and scientific principles for area students.

Finding unique ways to maybe partner a visiting artist with a mechanical engineering class or a kinesiology class. And those partnerships we have been able to bring those artists with our STEM minded students have been more impactful.

The full calendar is here. Tickets go on sale September 1st at the Rozsa Center website.
