2013-2014 Bowles Schedule

The 2013-2014 season of the Bowles Performing Arts Series is entitled "Know. Hear. Say." To know is to acquire presence of mind; to hear is to take in that which surrounds us; to say is to put into the world what we know and hear through the auditory lens of our own narrative. Know. Hear. Say. — the basic, yet necessary, ingredients for sincere appreciation. This applies to the performing arts as well as other forms of appreciation. Join us this season for a wide range of top-notch performances ranging from the captivating and intimate theater and live music events to entertaining and thought-provoking dinner shows.
