Baruch Performing Arts Center
Baruch Performing Arts Center convenes a conversation across the disciplines of art, science, and the humanities, as well as across the panoply of world societies that are represented in Baruch’s diverse student body. We do this by presenting and producing theater, music, dance, literary and spoken word, film, and discussions which inform through relevant content and engage through singular experiences, enriching the appreciation of Baruch students, faculty and alumni for culture in its broadest sense, while serving as a resource for all New Yorkers.
Baruch Performing Arts Center’s programming is a means by which the Baruch students engage, learn, and immerse themselves beyond the classroom, as well as a way for the college community and general public to understand the fruits of its faculty’s broad range of intellectual inquiry, engage in issues of civic relevance, and experience the richness of culture that is the hallmark of New York City. BPAC and the Weissman School of Arts & Sciences, with the generous support of many donors, offer several regular series including the Joel Segall Great Works Reading Series (supported by the Nat R. and Martha M. Knaster Charitable Trust and Aaron Shapiro ’49 LHD (Hon. ’89) and Michael Lobel.), The Aaron Silberman Concert Series (supported by Fried and Aaron Silberman (’46 BBA), the Alexander String Quartet (Supported by George ’39 LLD (Hon. ’82) and Mildred Weissman), and the Milt Hinton Jazz Perspectives Concert Series. BPAC collaborates with the Sandra Kahn Wasserman Jewish Studies Center, the Zicklin School of Business, and numerous cultural organizations to present a rich array of programming across the disciplines of art, science, and the humanities.
