Community Performance Series is your ticket to world-class performances.

Community Performance Series is a college-community partnership presenting world-class performing arts opportunities in northern New York.

CPS has been in residence at SUNY Potsdam since 1989, ensuring enhanced access to performances for the people of the region through four main efforts:

  • The Guest Artist Series, now in its twenty-fifth year, has brought a rich variety of world-renowned artists to Potsdam.
  • In 1995, CPS developed the Meet the Arts series to introduce children and families to the performing arts through school-time programs and family-friendly events.
  • CPS Productions, developed in 2004, offers the community access to professional musical theatre.
  • CPS provides administrative support to several campus and community performances in an effort to increase public awareness of the full complement of arts opportunities available.
