Welcome to Education Week

We welcome you to Campus Education Week and hope your experience is enjoyable and rewarding. The program features nearly 1,000 classes, a devotional by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, exceptional evening performances and other activities to inspire and enrich your life. As you attend the program, we hope you will gain insights that will be spiritually strengthening and foster your commitment to lifelong learning and service.

Evening performances on campus

Evening performances will be held in the Harris Fine Arts Center, August 16–19:

South Pacific is one of the greatest musicals of the 20th century. Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. The show comes alive through well-known music by Rodgers and Hammerstein. This SCERA production is an entertaining story of love, loss, happiness, and the eventual triumph over cultural prejudice.

The Nashville Tribute Band brings together amazing artists and musicians who use their talent to testify of the Savior, the Restoration of the gospel through the Prophet Joseph Smith, the sacrifices of pioneers, and the blessings of missionary work. Award-winning songwriter and Nashville record producer Jason Deere regularly invites a revolving cast of talented artists and musicians to join him in touring the world and performing the stories and songs from their tribute albums. Jason will be joined by Dan Truman (of the Grammy Award-winning group Diamond Rio), and Matt Lopez, Tim Gates, and Brad Hull of the country band Due West.

Jenny Oaks Baker and Family Four will present an evening of exhilarating music, featuring popular, inspirational, soul-filling, and stirring songs. Joining them is guest artist Daron Bradford on woodwinds. You are sure to enjoy this fabulous evening of entertainment!

Remaining tickets are available at the BYU Arts Ticket Office in the Harris Fine Arts Center and at the Marriott Center Ticket Office. See the class schedule booklet for details.
