The Performance

Join Us for an Unparalleled Experience

The natural wonders of the North Carolina mountains, like the arts themselves, evoke powerful feelings and uplift the human spirit. Western Carolina University's Bardo Arts Center channels that emotion and provides a fresh and inspiring venue for world-class performers and artists. Here is the focal point where all of the disciplines of the arts come together to inspire, to engage and to excite audiences and artists alike. Join us for some of the highest caliber performances you'll ever experience.

The elegant 1,000-seat performance hall, with its finely-tuned acoustics and state-of-the-art lighting system, plays host all year long to a series of arts events by regional, national and international guests. In this setting, you'll be transformed as the lights go down and the artist takes the stage. Imagine the silence of rapture during a concert, the moments of shared emotion upon a dramatic twist of plot or the post-performance buzz in the lobby. How will the next live performance touch your soul?
