The University of Minnesota Spotlight Series is a collaborative partnership between the University Honors Program, Institute for Advanced Study, and Northrop, to present lectures, panel discussions, exhibits, and other events throughout the academic year around timely topics of interest. The six-part 2021-22 series, hosted in partnership with the Minnesota Humanities Center, focuses on patriotism, public service, and civic engagement.
Northrop’s 2021-22 Dance Series offers a mix of returning companies, stage debuts, a classical ballet, and Northrop Centennial Commission works all in-person at the Carlson Family Stage or with our presenting partners at The Cowles Center.
Northrop’s 2021-22 Film Series features five events that put dance in the center of these cinematic creations. Select your own price ($0-$50) to screen films online—the ticket revenue will be shared with the artists. All screenings are available on-demand with extended viewing dates for your flexibility.
Northrop's Music Series features three extraordinary concerts performed on Northrop’s own historic Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ. The series features debuts by two high-profile legends on the instrument, and a returning favorite with a new Holiday program.
