The Mary Jo and V. Lane Rawlins Fine Arts Series began as the Lyceum Series in 1903 when UNT was North Texas Normal College. The series has grown over the past century while never losing sight of its purpose. In all our endeavors we hope to enrich UNT students' lives and provide a higher quality of life here at North Texas.
As the Fine Arts Series enters its 112th season, we hope to entertain and educate our campus community by presenting an exciting series of performing, visual, and literary arts events. All UNT Fine Arts Series performances are presented free of charge to UNT students. In honor of the commitment that Dr. and Mrs. Rawlins have for UNT students and the Arts, the students at UNT proudly propose to rename this series The Mary Jo and V. Lane Rawlins Fine Arts Series
Fine Arts Series 2015-2016
The Story of Silk
April 22nd, 2016 at 8pm
University Union Lyceum
Pathbreakers in their own right, vocalist Sikkil Gurucharan and pianist Anil Srinivasan rewrote the presentation format of South Indian classical music when they first collaborated in 2006. Their work has traveled extensively since then, and they've released nearly eight albums, working on their ninth. They have been TED INDIA speakers, documented on Singapore's national television and featured at top festivals worldwide, in addition to being national award winners in their own country. The Story of Silk is a coming together of the classical piano with the Carnatic voice, exploring concepts of mythology from across the Indian subcontinent through music and poetry across the ages.
