The UA Presents Season\\u0027s lineup includes holiday performances, ballet and other dance forms, jazz and \\u0022world\\u0022 groups to entertain a diverse community in southern Arizona.

UApresents has announced its 2012-13 season, offering a wide range of entertainment events, opening with nine-time Grammy winner Bonnie Raitt.

Other popular performers will include pianist Lang Lang, Celtic Woman and comedian/actress Carol Burnett.

Most performances are at Centennial Hall on the University of Arizona campus, but executive director Charles Tennes says the group will try something new this season with other venues. That will provide a more intimate atmosphere for performances that are not expected to attract the size of audience that Centennial Hall can hold.

"Our hope here is to test whether we can't deliver a better audience experience by moving around town a little bit in addition to our Centennial Hall programming," Tennes says.

The season opener withe blues singer Raitt will be Sept. 26. See the full schedule on the UApresents website, www.uapresents.org.
