Join us for a celebratory evening with The Philadelphia Orchestra, featuring Guest Conductor Keith Lockhart, and Broadway Star Brian Stokes Mitchell, with opening performances by vertical dance innovators, Bandaloop, and pop artist, Zia Victoria. This event will honor the generosity and legacy of Robert Zoellner '54 and his wife, Victoria '15GP, for their inspirational gift to Lehigh in the early 1990s establishing Zoellner Arts Center. Today, Zoellner is one of the premier performing and visual arts centers in the Lehigh Valley, providing students and the surrounding community with unique opportunities to learn, discover, and share cultural experiences.
