ABOUT THE 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 a "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.

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.  (Presently we accept cash or checks only.)  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 kbohnet@southalabama.edu.

SEASON PASSES and the USA MUSICAL ARTS SOCIETY

Members of the university community and residents of the region-at-large are invited to show their support of the University of South Alabama music program by purchasing a Season Pass and/or by joining the department's Musical Arts Society.  In pursuing this option, you will have the opportunity to buy either an Individual Season Pass or the Family Season Pass, allowing you the freedom to attend all the faculty recitals, student recitals and ensemble concerts listed on our schedule. These season passes are offered to you at a discounted rate and provide the convenience of entering the venue without the hassle of cash or writing a check!

Contact the department secretary, Peggy Doyle, by calling (251) 460-6136 or via email at pdoyle@southalabama.edu, being certain to provide your mailing address and a phone number.
