John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center

A Cultural Destination

The natural wonders of the North Carolina mountains, like the arts themselves, evoke powerful feelings and uplift the human spirit. The Performance Hall in Bardo Arts Center at Western Carolina University channels that emotion and provides a fresh and inspiring venue for world-class performers and artists. We feature professional artists from around the world in our performance series, along with performances from the WCU College of Fine and Performing Arts, concerts for the Friends of the Arts, and presentations from WCU Arts and Cultural Events (ACE).
