To enrich the cultural life of the University of Vermont and the wider community

  • By sponsoring performances of the highest merit by nationally and internationally known artists in the world of music, dance, and theatre.
  • By integrating artistic performances into the educational programs of the University and the community.
  • By building audiences of all ages for its varied programs, thus enhancing the effectiveness of a major University and community cultural resource.


The University of Vermont Lane Series features a diverse season of performing arts events including classical music, early music, film, theater, jazz, and folk music. Each year brings a variety of artists from established international favorites to promising new talent. We enjoy an international reputation as a presenter of chamber and classical music. The Lane Series was established in 1955 with a generous gift from the Lane family.

Serving as a link among many constituencies, the Lane Series finds its audience, volunteers, and advisors from the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of UVM as well as the community at large. In addition to the presentation of performances, the Lane Series ensures students and public direct interaction with performers through master classes, workshops, residencies, lectures, and receptions. The Lane Series is committed to a dual mission of cultural presentation and outreach, and education. Through our ARTIX program we provide free tickets to over 30 social service agencies to insure arts access to all audiences.

The Lane Series is a part of the University of Vermont. The offices are located at 392 South Prospect Street, Burlington, VT 05405.
