Welcome to the new season of YOUR Lied Center!

It is our privilege to support KU and Lawrence by offering a diverse program of performances and engagement activities featuring world-class artists. More than half of them will be making their Lied Center debuts this season. Of particular note are the inaugural Jayhawk Live performances, which highlight campus luminaries and KU students performing with special guests. I would like to express our gratitude to the Friends of the Lied for their invaluable and ongoing support, and please remember: take care of the arts, and the arts will take care of you.


Rock Chalk!
Derek S. Kwan, executive director
