Lecture & Fine Arts Series


m-pact, the 2019 Vocal Jazz Fest guest artists


The mission of the Lecture & Fine Arts Series at UW-Stevens Point at Wausau is to bring educational, culturally-enriching, high-quality, fine arts programs to students and community members throughout the year.

A student-centered committee fulfills this mission by creating a series that enhances a respect for racial, ethnic and cultural diversity in a multi-cultural world. The series is sponsored by the Student Fee Allocation Committee. As a result, ticket prices are always affordable, making the series the best arts bargain around.

Events include concerts, artist presentations and exhibits, film showings, poetry readings, theater productions and much more! The Lecture & Fine Arts Series contracts with national caliber master-artists in all disciplines to conduct residencies, workshops and classroom presentation, in addition to public performances.

m-pact has been hailed as "one of the best pop-jazz vocal groups in the world" by the San Francisco Chronicle, and is respected worldwide as a cutting edge trailblazer in the realm of vocal music. Touring across 4 continents, and appearing with superstar artists ranging from Boyz II Men to Natasha Bedingfield, this powerhouse acappella ensemble from Los Angeles has cultivated a new generation of ears hungry for the fresh, raw power of nature's "first instrument" - the human voice.
