Stephens Story Collection

The countdown to our 50th Anniversary Performing Arts Season has begun!

We’re getting ready to hit the big 5-0 and we’d be honored if a little part of you was a part of our celebration. Were you there in 1969 for the grand opening performances by the New York Symphony Orchestra? Or, perhaps you’ve attended one or more of the more than 2,000 performances since then.

Whether your experience has been on stage, backstage, behind the scenes or in the seats we’d love to hear your Stephens Story. Send us your memories, contact us if you have photos, and tell us a story about you and Stephens Auditorium. Contact us today!
