ASU Gammage offers student performances

Most ASU Gammage performances for students take place in the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed venue on the Arizona State University campus in Tempe.

ASU Gammage encourages students to experience the world of art and culture by offering special performances for students throughout the school year. This year’s Scottsdale Insurance/Nationwide Foundation Performances for Students Series includes four, one-hour performances that cost just $3 per student, teacher and chaperone.

One performance takes place at the ASU Kerr Cultural Center in Scottsdale. The others take place at ASU Gammage on Arizona State University’s Tempe campus.
