September 26th, 2021 marked a very special day for our UNC Music Department. It was the first indoor concert with a live audience that the department has had in almost two years, since February 2020. We are so excited to come back better than ever and continue to share our passion for music with you all live and in person, and we have ways to make attending an event in the department easier than ever!

In an attempt to make the process of purchasing tickets more convenient and accessible, and considering COVID-19 accommodations, the Department of Music now offers online ticket sales. Livestream links will also be available for purchase for select concerts. Tickets may be purchased online for all paid UNC Music concerts up to 24 hours in advance of the performance date; live stream links may be purchased up to the performance time.

Tickets for in-person attendance are still available for purchase at the box office on the day of the concert. The box office will open one hour prior to the concert. Tickets may not be purchased over the phone.

Tickets are available through one of four purchasing forms: Scholarship Benefit Concert series, William S. Newman Artists series, Live Stream Access, and Free Concert reservations. (Live Stream access and Free Concert reservations will be available for select concerts only.) Each form, except for the Free Concert registration, will link to a payment portal after completion. Once your payment has been processed, we will email you your ticket. You can access the ticket on your phone, or you can print it. Please have your ticket ready to scan at the door.

A key COVID-19 accommodation that we are introducing this year is distanced seating. There is distanced seating available at the back and along the sides of the James and Susan Moeser Auditorium. If you would like to reserve a distanced seat, please let us know by intimating this information in the purchase form. We also ask that all attendees remain masked, regardless of age or vaccination status, while in music department venues. Please take a moment to read through our department COVID-19 guidelines before coming to campus.

More details about these new procedures can be found on our Events FAQ page. For any questions or concerns, please email us at We look forward to seeing you at a concert very soon!
