- Audra McDonald headlines this year's Modfest.
"Raising Voices" is the chosen theme for this celebration of art and music, with a series of events focusing activism, speaking up, and facing adversity. "These exhibitions reflect the perspectives of faculty, students, and staff across campus in response to recent events," says Modfest Co-director Tom Pacio. Raising Healing Voices will combine creative healing for vocal problems with music therapy. Music, Words, and Images is an annual interdisciplinary presentation of poetry, photography, and chamber music. Headlining the series of events will be six-time Tony-winner Audra McDonald ("Ragtime" and "A Raisin in the Sun"), performing at Skinner Hall February 5 at 3pm. All events are free and open to the public. Modfest runs from January 26 through February 5. For more information, click here.
