The Arts and Events
The Cleveland Orchestra
Oberlin Dance Company

Oberlin College and Conservatory of Music each year present a range artistic and musical performances and conversations that reflect the times of the day. We set the stage for esteemed speakers, performers, musicians, and cultural icons to enrich the life of the Oberlin campus and broader community.

Artist Recital Series

Since its inception in 1878, Oberlin’s Artist Recital Series has presented more than 1,000 of the world’s acclaimed and accomplished musicians, conductors, orchestras, chamber ensembles, and composers. These artists enhance the arts and culture of Oberlin and northeast Ohio.

Oberlin Arts Guide

The Oberlin Arts Guide is your ticket, albeit mostly free, to our annual presentations of music and art, theater and dance, and provocative discourse and talks by some of the country’s prominent thinkers and scholars.
