When Baritone Robert Merrill's performed at the dedication of the new Gustavus recital hall in 1971, the hall named after his friend and colleague Tenor Jussi Björling, a tradition of bringing world-class artists and performers to the Gustavus Adolphus College campus took root. Since Merrill's performance in the fall of 1971, nearly 200 actors, dance companies, artists, musicians and ensembles have presented more than 250 performances and exhibitions in music, dance, theatre and art and have contributed to the Gustavus Artist Series' reputation as the leading performance series in southern Minnesota. The College is pleased to announce the 2013-14 season with hopes to continue that tradition of excellence. The new season opens with an art exhibition in Schaefer Gallery and includes performances by the Rose Ensemble, the Bach Society of Minnesota, the Aeolus String Quartet, Michael Johnson, 'cellist Su-a Lee, classical guitarist Robert Gruca and an exhibition by American artist Emily Sheehan.
