Performing Arts Residency Program

The Performing Arts Residency Program provides a platform for the development and performance of new work that simultaneously enriches the airport environment and cultivates the regional performing arts community. This opportunity is a process-oriented residency program open to contemporary performing arts in all disciplines—dance, music, theater, as well as cross-disciplinary digital media.

Ongoing Concert Series & Special Performances

The Arts Program has organized a new schedule of singer-songwriters, composers, musicians of all genres, dancers, and theatrical/oratorical performances. Ensemble concerts take place every third Thursday of the month from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Terminal 2 Baggage Claim (pre-security) or Sunset Cove (post-security). Piano concerts take place every Friday from 11:30 a.m-1:30 p.m. at Sunset Cove.
