Our students frequently perform in the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, and in several other nearby spaces. Future space will include the Pitzer Center.
The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts
The two venues in the Mondavi Center—Jackson Hall and the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre—are home to more than 100 concerts and performances each year.
Many of the department’s student ensembles, such as the University Chorus, the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra, and the Jazz Ensemble regularly perform there. Also, the Shinkoskey Noon Concert Series usually takes place in the center’s beautiful Yocha Dehe Grand Lobby.
