parties with a purpose

colburn’s history is filled with show-stopping performances and exclusive parties with like-minded individuals who support colburn’s education and on-stage activities and provide access to the best performing arts training regardless of a student’s ability to pay. due to the unique nature of the 2020–21 season, please stay tuned for more information about new ways to engage with us—through virtual dialogues, podcasts, performances, and more. we are looking forward to sharing more with you.

in the meantime, please check out a selection of archived events that we’ve put together for you. you can also visit our colburn connected portal to read the latest updates and watch performances by our students, faculty, and alumni. we can’t wait to welcome you back onto campus, but for now, please enjoy this collection of special memories curated just for you.
