The Otis A. Singletary Center for the Arts at the University of Kentucky offers the promise of excitement and discovery that only great performances and art can provide.  Named on April 16, 1987 for the retiring eighth President of the University, the Center has become a major cultural resource for the Commonwealth.  From its opening on November 1, 1979, the Center has accomplished Dr. Singletary's wish to provide a succession of brilliant performances in our Concert and Recital Halls, which constitute impressive evidence of the University of Kentucky's continuing commitment to the arts.  Hosting an average of 400 events annually, the Singletary Center has served over 3.7 million patrons in its history.  The Center provides professional, full-service venues for the creation, practical application and dissemination of artistic, cultural and educational expressions by international, national, regional, university, and student performers, artists, and speakers.


A part of the College of Fine Arts and essential to the UK School of Music, the Singletary Center for the Arts presents and hosts artistic, cultural and educational events for the University community, Lexington community and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
