"A model of what a classical concert series should be."   - Chicago Tribune

The University of Chicago Presents (UCP) concert series brings a rich and wide array of world-class professional soloists and chamber music ensembles to campus through its five distinctive series. The series’ hallmarks are its high artistic standards, the Chicago debuts of remarkable young artists, and its distinctive programming of beloved classics as well as fascinating, lesser-known repertoire – set in intimate and beautiful campus venues.

The Classic Concert Series features recitalists and chamber music ensembles performing music from the Classical period through the present.

The five-concert Jazz at the Logan series showcases jazz greats across a range of stylistic influences and is supported by the Julie and Parker Hall Endowment and the Reva & David Logan Foundation.

The Howard Mayer Brown International Early Music Series brings acclaimed artists from around the globe for historically appropriate performances of Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque repertoire.

The newest series, Music Without Borders, showcases artists from around the world who blend global traditions with modern styling.

In partnership with the Chicago Center for Contemporary Composition, the Contemporary series present world premiere performances by guest ensembles and the CCCC's resident Grossman Ensemble.

Student tickets to all concerts are just $10, but UChicago students can receive free tickets through the Sponsor-a-Student program. You can visit University of Chicago Presents' website to see their upcoming events schedule.
