Each year the Department of Music and Dance hosts performances, residencies and master classes by distinguished musicians and dancers from around the world. The Featured Artist series presents each artist as performer and teacher, leading master classes, giving solo performances, and collaborating in performances with Swarthmore College student musicians.
The 2020-2021 Featured Guest Artist series presents performances and collaborations with Jasper String Quartet and Akropolis Reed Quintet. Our virtual music series continues this spring with Aisha Fukushima, Martronimous, and Nobuko Miyamoto. The fall semester featured Third Coast Percussion, Christine Lamprea, Marié Abe, Branford Marsalis, Rhiannon Giddens, and Wu Man.
