Three Pines Studio

Want to experience our world’s many cultures without leaving our borough?

Get ready for Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts’ 2008-2009 lineup, announced earlier this month. Brooklyn Center will present singers from St. Petersburg on March 7, 2009, acrobats from Australia on Jan. 10, 2009, tango dancers from Argentina on Nov. 15, and everything in between at its home on the Brooklyn College campus, the Walt Whitman Theatre.

“I believe very strongly that I can bring in art that’s going to serve my audience here, but also keep it really fresh and interesting,” Artistic Director Seth Soloway told GO Brooklyn. “We’re creating an experience that you can’t get anywhere else, and it’s right here in your borough.”

Some performances to look forward to include Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Patti Austin with the Duke Ellington Orchestra on Nov. 22 and the New York premiere of “Score!” by Australia’s Expressions Dance Company (pictured) on Jan. 10, 2009.

But you can’t see any of it without tickets, which are on sale now.

The Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College 2008-2009 season begins in October at the Walt Whitman Theatre (2900 Campus Rd. at Hillel Place in Midwood). Individual and subscription tickets for the 2008–2009 season are available now at www.brooklyncenter.com or (718) 951-4500.
