One of the biggest artistic losses of the past year has been the lack of brotherhood of live performances – from local fine and performing arts to local names in modest spaces. The announcement of the 2021-2022 season of this week of The Newman Center presents is taking action to correct this.
The season from November 19 to April 8, 2022 includes a typically diverse programming with Veronique swift (November 19), Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca (November 21), a holiday show with Fiesta Colorado, Mariachi Sol by Mi Tierra, and ArtistiCO (November 30), Kronos Quartet (January 12, 2022), three Nat Geo Live shows, great jazz and preservationist Wynton marsalis, and much more. Tickets for shows at Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts, on the University of Denver campus, are on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, October 1. (Prices vary, newmancenterpresents.com)
