Here is more about the upcoming events in 2012-13 series:

Monday, March 4: Ailey II is an exceptional company that merges the spirit and energy of the country’s best young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today’s most outstanding emerging choreographers. Started in 1974 as the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble, Ailey II embodies Mr. Ailey’s pioneering mission to establish an extended cultural community that provides dance performances, training and community programs for all people. Artistic Director Designate Troy Powell continues the legacy of Alvin Ailey. More: Read more about Ailey II’s 2012-13 World Tour. (Click here for free seating vouchers.)

Tuesday, March 26: Thirty-eight years after the first broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion, storyteller and author Garrison Keillor continues to entertain audiences with his idiosyncratic brand of humor. Keillor was presented with the National Humanities Medal by the National Endowment for the Humanities in 1999. (Click here for free seating vouchers.)

Thursday, April 11: Grammy Award-winning Chanticleer – called “the world’s reigning male chorus,” by the New Yorker magazine — presents The Siren’s Call. This program celebrates the Sea with music from New Zealand, Hawaii and China complemented by Chanticleer’s signature treatments of Gregorian Chant and Renaissance music. (Seating is on a first-come, first-seated basis.)
