The University of Iowa’s Hancher Auditorium has a number of digital shows planned for March and April. Admission is free, but advanced registration is required. Here’s a rundown:

Mark Morris in Conversation: Renowned choreographer Mark Morris will host a conversation with chef Alice Waters (7:30 p.m. March 18). TV journalist Paula Zahn will moderate.

United We Swing: Jazz and American History: Hancher Auditorium is partnering with the Lincoln Center in New York City for a virtual series on the history of jazz. Starting on March 24 with “Louis Armstrong and the Explosion of Swing,” the six-week program includes lectures on different jazz musicians and topics.

Pacifica Quartet and Anthony McGill: On March 30, this string quartet will be joined by Anthony McGill, principal clarinet with the New York Philharmonic. The concert is recorded just for the Hancher Auditorium audience.
