About the Cultural Series

The MVCC Cultural Series brings world-class lectures, concerts, comedy, theatre, and more to the entire community within MVCC's performance venues on the Utica and Rome campuses. The series is organized by the Cultural Events Council, whose purpose is to enrich the College and the greater community through the planning, promoting, and facilitating of a bi-semester cultural series that reflects and enhances diverse interests and strengthens learning opportunities. This series is brought to you by MVCC’s Cultural Events Council and MVCC's Program Board with significant support from the Student Activity Fee.
