The 2018-2019 UCCS Presents Artist Series at Ent Center for the Arts is an eclectic mix of popular musicians and dance companies, Grammy Award winners and National Geographic Live presenters.

Other offerings include pianists, vocalists, chamber musicians, a modern percussion ensemble and talks by NASA Engineer Kobie Boykins about exploring Mars, and by mountaineer Hilaree O’Neill about leading a team of climbers up a remote peak in Myanmar.

The season runs Oct. 12 through May 8.
