Catalyst Quartet and Rodríguez Trio concerts moving to alternate venues

The Center for the Performing Arts presentations of Catalyst Quartet and Alfredo Rodríguez Trio will take place in alternate venues because Schwab Auditorium, the original location for the concerts, is closed for repairs.

The Thursday, Sept. 17, Catalyst performance will be in Music Building I’s Esber Recital Hall on the University Park campus. The Thursday, Sept. 24, Rodríguez concert will be at The State Theatre on College Avenue in downtown State College. Both performances begin at 7:30 p.m.

Patrons who previously purchased tickets to either concert must return them to the Arts Ticket Center at Eisenhower Auditorium in person (weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or via mail (Arts Ticket Center, The Pennsylvania State University, Eisenhower Auditorium, University Park PA 16802). The old tickets will be exchanged for reserved seats at Esber and general-admission seats at The State.

Tickets for each concert continue to be available for purchase online or by phone at 814-863-0255 or 800-ARTS-TIX. Tickets are also available in advance at four State College locations: Eisenhower Auditorium (weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Penn State Downtown Theatre Center (weekdays 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), HUB-Robeson Center Information Desk (weekdays 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning Aug. 24) and Bryce Jordan Center (weekdays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

On the night of each performance, tickets will be available at the respective concert venue. Cash and checks will be the only forms of payment accepted at The State on the evening of the Rodríguez performance.

“I want to thank our good colleagues at the Penn State School of Music and The State Theatre for assisting us with new locations for these performances,” said Center for the Performing Arts Director George Trudeau.

Complimentary parking for both performances will be available at the Eisenhower Parking Deck, and complimentary wheelchair-accessible shuttle service will be provided between the Eisenhower deck and each venue.

Artistic Viewpoints, an informal discussion featuring a visiting artist, will take place at the respective venue one hour before each performance.
