Centennial Ball

Broadway Sings for the Centennial Ball!

The University of New Haven’s Virtual Centennial Ball is just a week away and the excitement is palpable! Our event will be hosted by Audra McDonald – a Grammy, Emmy, and six-time Tony Award winner – who will introduce us to the stars of Broadway Sings! This talented group will perform some fan-favorite numbers from Hamilton, Wicked, Chicago, The Lion King, Phantom of the Opera, and more.

Another highlight of the evening will be students showcasing their most innovative and inspiring projects, with an opportunity to chat with these students virtually. Our event will also feature a campus tour by drone, and virtual networking with your former professors and coaches, and alumni worldwide. We hope you will join us for our 100th birthday celebration. You won’t want to miss it!


Your $25 registration for this event supports our outstanding students through the Centennial Scholarship Fund. Can’t attend the Virtual Centennial Ball, or would like to contribute more?  Learn about our Centennial Giving Challenge and donate today!
