Pacific Students Take to the Stage for Fall Productions

Symphony and dance performance

A play about gender shifting spanning centuries, fluid movement from choreographers, and the sounds of jazz, a choir, and “Amazing Grace.”

These are just some of the highlights of Pacific University’s 2019 Fall Theatre, Dance and Concert Season.

Pacific students are rehearsing and putting the finishing touches on performances as they get ready to showcase their talent. Mark your calendars and join us for the Fall Production Season, which features some original works from students, including the conducting debuts of five student conductors.
