Art is communication. It connects us and helps us unite in a way that simple conversation sometimes cannot. It also needs our continued support to work.
The University of Colorado Boulder campus has long been a hub of the performing arts in the region. If you’re looking to meet and support new artists across the area, you’ll want to check out CU Presents.
What is CU Presents?
Artists from near and far have been flocking to the University of Colorado Boulder for years to hone their talents and flourish in a richly creative environment. Thanks to CU Presents, students and locals alike are all able to partake in the theatre, music, and dance that they have to offer.
As a spectator, you’ll have plenty to check out at CU Presents. Here are just a few of our favorite things:
- Artist Series: For 80 years, the Artist Series has been showcasing renowned and emerging musicians from all over. Specializing in jazz, classical, world music, and many more genres, they add even more diversity to an already varied lineup of events.
- Colorado Shakespeare Festival: There’s a good reason why Shakespeare’s works have stood the test of time—they’re truly magic incarnate. The Colorado Shakespeare Festival has worked alongside the University of Colorado Boulder for more than 60 seasons now.
- Takács Quartet: String music truly runs the emotional gamut. If you’re looking for a cathartic and engaging evening of music, check out the Grammy Award-winning Takács Quartet at CU Presents.

As the pinnacle of the arts at the University of Colorado Boulder, CU Presents is as much about learning as it is entertaining. They want to help you hone your own skills, too!
