welcome Welcome to the 2012 performing arts season at Harford Community College. Each year, we host a variety of cultural opportunities from national touring acts to local resident companies, jazz to classical to folk, opera to ballet to musical comedy. From month to month and year to year, you never know who will be gracing our stages – but you can be sure they will create an unforgettable experience. Check the various listings in the Fine Arts Calendar to select all of your favorites, but remember many shows sell out fast. Avoid disappointment by ordering your tickets early. Our staff and volunteers want you to have the best possible experience before, during and after the show. We hope you will share your suggestions about ways we may improve your experience at HCC to make it even more memorable. Please contact me at the Ticket Office at 443-412-2211 or email me at snicolaides@harford.edu. Thank you for supporting the arts in Harford County!
