A Message from Executive Director Lana Rogachevskaya


Dear Friends,

This summer, at the conclusion of my eleventh season with the Center for Performing Arts (the Center), I will be moving back to the NYC/New Jersey area to be closer to family. It’s the beginning of a bittersweet transition. I’ve established deep roots over the past ten years and have cultivated a beloved cultural family here.

We are fortunate to have a supportive College of Arts and Sciences Dean, Division of Arts and Letters Chair, and a growing Advisory Board. GSU’s President Dr. Cheryl Green is an incredible advocate of cultural arts and inclusion. We have a strong team of 14 full-time staff members. We have much to celebrate and exciting work ahead to ensure that the Center remains the thriving, premiere, cultural destination in the Chicago Southland.

Thank You. Onward!


Lana Rogachevskaya
Executive Director, Center for Performing Arts
