The COVID-19 Crisis has closed the doors of theaters, auditoriums and music venues all over America. This is a challenging time, and we are being encouraged to stay at home and practice social distancing. We may not be able to welcome you into our auditorium and share the energy and fun of a live performance, but The Givens Performing Arts Center is committed to its mission of providing diverse, quality arts experiences the best way it can.
We have curated a selection of on-demand programs for you to enjoy in the safety and comfort of your home. We want to thank the artists who gave us permission to share their works free for you to enjoy. In the coming weeks, you can join us here and enjoy some great performances!
