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 advanced student ensemble performances.  Over the years since 2001, our regular Musical Arts Series attendees have been treated to an average of 35 concerts per season.

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).  Tickets are $8 each for general admission and $5 for USA faculty & staff, USA students, youths under 18 and all senior citizens.  (For purchase of single concert tickets, we accept cash or card presently.)  Questions regarding special accommodation, live streaming 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
