After a year of scaled-down events and online programming, the Center for the Performing Arts has booked a wide variety of national and international artists for its return to full-capacity concerts over the coming year. The Center Presents Season sponsored by Allied Solutions includes nearly 40 events in the usual range of genres.

Whether its a soaring symphony inside the 1,600 seat Palladium concert hall or a more intimate performance at the Studio or Tarkington, there's a show for you on this year's schedule.

Below is a month-by-month breakdown of the 2021-2022 performances scheduled at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana.
