George Mason University’s Center for the Arts (CFA) has long been a cultural beacon in the Northern Virginia area.

From orchestral shows to theater, the CFA’s schedule gathers together the best of the world’s cultural icons.

The 2010-2011 season marks the CFA’s 20th anniversary. To celebrate, the venue will showcase some of their best talent yet. For students looking for a show, the CFA has their bases covered.

“The Great Performances at Mason series has such incredible variety and there really is something for everyone.” Said Public and Media Relations Coordinator Jill Graziano. “I see The Merchants of Bollywood doing really well among students given the emphasis that Mason places on diversity and the rise in popularity of Indian culture in recent years.”
