Lied Center

The Lied Center of Kansas serves the University of Kansas and the greater community by presenting world-class performing arts and providing free education opportunities for pre-schoolers through adults.

Our mission is to be an equitable, inclusive and enjoyable environment for everyone.

In honor of our 25th Anniversary, we are raising funds to install a hearing loop in the main auditorium so our patrons with T-coil hearing aids will be able to have comfortable and positive performing arts experiences. For people with hearing aids, it can be extremely difficult to hear and comprehend performances in large venues because of extraneous noises, reverberation and more, which leads to a very frustrating experience. Hearing-loop technology eliminates these issues and delivers clear sound straight to the user’s hearing aid.

Your support can help us make performances more accessible and gratifying for the hearing impaired.

In addition to the hearing loop, donations to Friends of the Lied will help us continue to keep ticket prices affordable for the community and provide barrier-free performing arts experiences to students.

View the video to learn more about our hearing loop campaign, and donate now to help us provide world-class performing arts experiences for all.
