Town Hall Lecture Series
For more than 40 years, some of the most influential names in the world have taken the TOWN HALL stage, creating lifetime memories for our community: past U.S. presidents, heads of state, global security, sciences, arts, business and more.
In an area known for its arts and culture, TOWN HALL is known for producing presentations that are innovative, compelling and often “one and only” events that can’t be seen anywhere else. This rich history means our patrons have incredibly high expectations for each new season, and we do our best to bring in speakers who bring unique experiences and insights.
Many times, our speakers are controversial, but we strive to bring speakers whose subject will cause you to think and get excited about hearing their perspective, even if you disagree. TOWN HALL strives to helps us embrace our experience in hearing what others think, whether we agree or not. We are honored to be in a community where can we come together at events like this and experience countless new perspectives.
