The Mondavi Center is UC Davis’ world-class performing arts facility. It is the premier performance venue in Northern California and the regional destination for the best in classical music, dance, distinguished speakers, jazz, theater and world music.

This sumptuous theater on the southern edge of campus nestles right up to the railroad tracks, but fear not — fabulous soundproofing and unparalleled acoustics have earned it high marks among performers and patrons alike. Top-notch performers and speakers, from Itzhak Perlman to Savion Glover to former President Clinton, have graced the stage.

The Mondavi Center explores the full range of the performing arts, from the traditional to the innovative and from diverse cultures and disciplines through presentation, education, public service and research. It is committed to maintaining state-of-the-art, world-class performance facilities and providing the highest-quality experience for both artists and audiences.

Resident programs include the UC Davis department of music, the UC Davis department of theater and dance, the Mondavi Center Arts Education Program and the Mondavi Center Presenting Program, which presents an annual season of events featuring an expansive mix of seasoned masters, emerging artists and leading cultural figures in approximately 90 performances and lectures each year.

Some highlights of the 2014 season include Ellis Marsalis, Jr. and Delfeayo Marsalis in September; the San Francisco Symphony in October; David Sedaris in November; and Mariachi Sol de Mexico in December.
