2017-2018
MUSICAL ARTS CONCERT SERIES

Serving both the university community and the entire Gulf Coast region through profound artistic and academic achievement, the Department of Music Musical Arts Concert Series features faculty recitals and student ensemble performances worthy of inclusion on anyone's "not-to-be-missed" list of events.  Regular Musical Arts Series attendees have been treated since 2001 to an average of 35 concerts per season, and this season will be no exception!  Student ensemble programs range from regular concerts by the Wind Ensemble, Symphony Band, University Chorale, Opera & Musical Theatre, Percussion Ensemble, Concert Choir, USA Symphony Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, Flute Choir, various World Music Ensembles, Brass Ensembles, and Piano Ensembles, while the performing faculty normally is represented in half of the concerts in the form of terrific solo and chamber ensemble recitals.

Scheduled in USA's Laidlaw Performing Arts Center 240-seat Recital Hall, concerts generally begin at 7:30 p.m. for evening performances and at 3:00 p.m. for scheduled Sunday events.  Tickets for admission to all MAS concerts and other ticketed events are normally sold at the door only (except where indicated) and the hall is open to our patrons approximately 45 minutes in advance of each presentation.  Except where indicated, tickets are $8 each for general admission and $5 for USA faculty & staff, USA students, youths under 18 and all senior citizens.  (Presently we accept cash or checks only.)  Questions regarding special accommodation or other considerations should be directed to the Events Coordinator at (251) 460-7116 or the Music Department Staff at (251) 460-6136.  Questions also may be emailed to Keith Bohnet at kbohnet@southalabama.edu.
