Again for our 2016-17 season, we’re pleased to offer the Scholarship Benefit Series, a collection of 19 events featuring our premier department ensembles. This series merges many of our most popular department concerts into a unified subscription program, offering an added value for our community patrons, parents, and students alike. A wide variety of subscription passes are available, some of which pay for themselves in just a few concerts. So check out the options below and see which one works best for you!

All subscriptions are available for sale either through the Music Department office (919-962-1039; music.dept@unc.edu) or at the door. Payment can be made by either cash or check (made out to “UNC Music Department” with the name of the pass in the memo line). And as always, individual tickets to all Scholarship Benefit Series events will be available at door for $10 ($5 for students & UNC faculty/staff). A complete list of series events and ticket information is available below.
