Director’s Message

Greetings! As the new managing director, I am thrilled to welcome you to the 30th anniversary of the Fine and Performing Arts Center. The center opened its doors in January 1994 to be a symbol of the college’s and community’s shared commitment to the arts. The mission of the Fine and Performing Arts Center is to enrich the members of the college community by providing opportunities for people of all ages to experience and grow through the arts, and it prides itself as a showcase for performances, a catalyst for the development of emerging artists, a center for academic studies,
and a resource for all who love the arts.

The 2023-24 season offers an array of music, dance, theater and art. We begin our season with the art gallery exhibition Conflux, featuring Chicago-based artist Jacob Boglio. The Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery provides a platform for our talented art students to showcase their artistic pieces at the annual juried show in April. The Performing Arts Series brings world-class, award-winning artists to Moraine Valley. We kick off the series with fan favorite Jim Witter performing Feelin’ Groovy, before traveling to Zimbabwe with Gospel a cappella quintet Nobuntu. We invite you to celebrate the holidays with Grammy Award-winning vocal jazz ensemble New York Voices, experience the ancient art of Japanese drumming with DRUM TAO, and bring the whole family to The Magic of Bill Blagg LIVE!

Our Academic Music and Theater departments have a great lineup of events, so don’t miss the opportunity to see them in The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, Moraine Chorale and Chamber Singers’ Merry Christmas Music, play Name That Tune with the Moraine Valley Flute Choir, feed your soul with the Moraine Valley Orchestra’s Moves Heaven and Earth, and much more. Thirty years of the arts at the Fine and Performing
Arts Center would not be possible without the support of our donors, sponsors, volunteers, faculty, staff and, of course, all of you. We thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to a season of incredible entertainment and artistic events at Moraine Valley.

Creatively,
Tianna Conway, Managing Director
