Seton Hall Arts Council Announces 2012-2013 Season

By EMILY MACKESSY

September 21, 2012 at 5:07 PM

SOUTH ORANGE, NJ – The Seton Hall Arts Council’s 2012-2013 schedule features performances at a number of venues, including the South Orange Performing Arts Center.

The Arts Council is made up of six different groups: Jazz ‘N the Hall, Classical Concert Series, Seton Hall Theater, Walsh Gallery, Poetry-in-the-Round and The Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute.

Dr. Dena Levine, professor of music in the department of communication and the arts at Seton Hall University, is in charge of the Classical Concert Series and also serves as the communication coordinator for the Council. She assists council members in coming to a consensus about which events to include and then provides information to the public about the events.

“We are very appreciative of the work that Dr. Levine does to create an artistic and informative brochure that is distributed to the South Orange and Seton Hall communities,” said Deirdre Yates, professor of speech and theater at Seton Hall.

Levine said the council is committed to increasing the visibility of the arts through events on and off campus. With its affiliation with SOPAC, it is looking to reach a younger demographic to allow them explore the arts outside their day-to-day activity.

This fall, the Seton Hall Theater will perform Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream.” This play was chosen because freshmen in the English department will read Shakespeare and the Arts Council wants to link performances to the experiences of the Seton Hall community.

Levin said there are a variety of events, and “each event is beautiful and different.”

The October schedule includes a visit by poet and evangelist Irma Lanzas. His appearance is co-sponsored by the Joseph A. Unanue Latino and Poetry-in-the-Round. He will be at Walsh Gallery on Oct. 7. Lanzas is from El Salvador and worked as a missionary in the United States and the poorest areas of Central America.
