Ticket Info:
Tickets on sale August 3

One of the greatest artists of our generation, Turkish pianist and composer, Fazıl Say, performs with rising star, Turkish cellist Jamal Aliyev, in a limited US tour ​that will dazzle you with their artistry in a night to remember.
Say’s extraordinary talents as a pianist have been astounding audiences and critics for more than twenty-five years and cellist Aliyev has been hailed as one of “the most brilliant young classical musicians playing today.” Bringing them both to Denison is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to catch two incredible artists, one whose artistry is well known, and one whose fame is skyrocketing with each concert season. The energy they will bring to Swasey stage will amaze you.
All events subject to change. Audience members will be subject to Denison COVID guidelines in place at the time.
Tickets and Season Passes are free for Denison students, faculty and staff.

We share these experiences with our larger community by making a limited number of tickets available for public sale on a first come, first served basis for $15 each. No refunds or exchanges. Season tickets for all five Vail performances are available at a discounted rate of $60 available August 3 - October 6. Visit this link for season ticket information

The Vail Series was endowed in 1979 by a generous gift from the late Mary and Foster McGaw in honor of Jeanne Vail, class of 1946. Just as it was intended to do, the Series enriches the artistic experience of the entire Denison community. Programmed creatively with the mindful pursuit of learning across traditional academic boundaries, more than 100 individual Vail Series artists have found their way to Denison’s classrooms and stages, but that doesn’t include the dozens of ensembles or full symphony orchestras that have played here over the years.
