As part of the ongoing series, “Holy Cross On the Road” traveled this fall to New York City to showcase the best of the College’s arts programs. Local high school students interested in applying to Holy Cross, along with parents, teachers and New York-area alumni saw firsthand the work of current students and heard directly from alumni and faculty about the lasting value of a Holy Cross education. Guests also had the opportunity to meet Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., College president and faculty from the departments of theatre, music, and visual arts.

The multifaceted event, which took place in Bennack Theatre at the Paley Center for Media, included:

  • Four selections by the 16-member Holy Cross Chamber Singers, conducted by David Harris.
  • A multimedia exhibition of artwork by current students and alumni.

In addition, the standing-room-only audience was treated to a panel discussion featuring:

  • Osvaldo Golijov, Loyola Professor of Music, acclaimed composer, and MacArthur Fellow
  • Margaret Lanzetta ’79, renowned painter whose work is exhibited internationally
  • Bartlett Sher ’81, Tony Award-winning director (“South Pacific”) and resident director, Lincoln Center Theater

The panel was moderated by Steve Vineberg, Holy Cross Distinguished Professor of Arts and Humanities and professor of theatre. In the video above, listen to excerpts of this conversation in which the panelists reflect on how a Holy Cross education shaped their creative vision and their professional lives.
