The start of the year also brings upon us the start of a new season within our Auditoria spaces! As we say goodbye to 2020, it would be impossible not to recognize the many events that have graced the NAU Auditoria stages over the last few months. We are honored to have been hosts to some amazing groups and organizations and anticipate another year of wonderful performances!
We started the year with the grand opening of Kitt Recital Hall–a beautiful, acoustically ideal venue that has seen nearly everyday use since it’s been open! Student, faculty and guests performances are abound in the midst of festivals, summer camps and lectures.
Throughout the year, we housed many performances from our friends at Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra, the NAU School of Music, as well as numerous Special Guests. In March, State Street Ballet took to the Ardrey Stage for their dazzling adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic stories. We were able to welcome the US Airforce Band to our campus for a performance. In March, Ashurst was able to be host to Flagstaff in Bloom, a student lead and run fashion show, showcasing the many works of NAU’s NAMA students. It’s been a pleasure to be a temporary home for such wonderful events!
As we move on to a new year and a new decade, we know the only way to go is to grow! We have an exciting lineup of events for the year to come and look forward to the new faces that it brings into our space. On behalf of everyone on the Auditoria staff, we’re excited for another year with you!
