DAVIS — The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, UC Davis announces the 10th anniversary season schedule of Corin Courtyard Concerts. This new series of free outdoor concerts will feature musicians from Northern California prior to select Mondavi Center performances throughout the season.
“The Earl and Coralie Corin Courtyard has, to date, been an under-utilized component of the Mondavi Center’s commitment to making the arts a part of everyday life for our campus and community,” said Mondavi Center Executive Director Don Roth.
“During our 10th anniversary season, we want to provide even more ways for the entire region to engage with our programs and our beautiful facility. We believe this beautiful space, surrounded by the UC Davis Arboretum and the Vanderhoef Quad, will prove to be a stunning showcase for free music from the best local and regional artists,” Roth said.
The courtyard is a new hub in the southern neighborhood of the UC Davis campus. There is free wireless internet service, shady café tables and chairs and the Fusion Fresh Café food truck.
The food truck is open Monday through Friday from early morning until late afternoon and features a full coffee bar menu in addition to breakfast and lunch specials. On select Corin Courtyard Concert nights, the food truck will remain open and there will be a cash bar available as well.
