Professional and campus music, dance, and theatre events, as well as lectures, convocations, and other functions are held in the 1,200 seat Weis Center, an architecturally striking and acoustically exceptional performance hall. The hall boasts two Steinway concert grand pianos, the lobby is home to a collection of watercolors by artist David Armstrong '69, and the building contains rehearsal rooms for Bucknell's large instrumental and choral ensembles. The Weis Center for the Performing Arts has been presenting professional performances since 1988.
The mission of the Weis Center for the Performing Arts at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA is to feature the highest caliber of artists who extend and/or enhance the learning experience, highlighting artists who are testing the boundaries of their art forms, who are true innovators in their fields, and whose work emanates from the widest spectrum of world cultures.
What We Do
Through our performances and programs, the Weis Center aspires to transform the nature of the world we live in — locally and globally.
- We inspire artists to do their best work and share it with the university and greater central Pennsylvania audiences.
- We inspire audiences to recognize the spiritual power of art and its ability to change individual lives.
- We inspire communities to become active participants rather than passive spectators through a deeper integration of arts activities shared between the campus and the greater community.
