Tri-C Performing Arts
Tri-C Performing Arts is an invigorating mix of events taking place at various Tri-C campuses and venues in the city that make it convenient for you to attend no matter where you live. The season is made up of four presentations - Performing Arts Series, Classical Piano Series, Theatre Program and Art Galleries - and the entire season usually kicks off in the fall.
Our 2023 Classical Piano Series, presented free at 2 p.m. on Sundays at the Cleveland Museum of Art, celebrates its 16th anniversary of showcasing emerging and established pianists from all over the world.
In addition to the dance performances, we are presenting trumpeters Wynton Marsalis and Terence Blanchard, Afrofuturism: Black Lives Will Exist in the Future and vibraphonist Joel Ross.
The Tri-C Theatre Program is always a great introduction to the world of theater, from new works to Broadway shows, priced so that you can take the whole family. And the College's Art Galleries at the Eastern and Western campuses showcase inspiring and provocative work all year.

Many Performing Arts events take place in the Tri-C Metro Campus Auditorium. We recommend parking in Lot 5 for any performance happening there or in the John P. Murphy Mainstage Theater. Lot 5 is located at 2809 Woodland Ave. in Cleveland and is a free, underground and secured lot directly under the Gill and Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts.
Motorists can reach the Lot 5 parking garage by traveling east or west via Euclid or Carnegie Ave. to E. 30th Street and then south to Woodland Avenue. From I-77 northbound take the Cuyahoga Community College exit (E. 30th Street) onto Woodland Ave. From I-90 eastbound and I-71 northbound take the exit to I-77 south and immediately exit onto E. 30th Street where you'll keep heading south to Woodland Ave.
