Most concerts are free and all are open to the public. Some events require tickets, and our calendar will note when this is the case. Events that require tickets--the opera, some Society for New Music events, and some Guitar Society Events--will generally have a box office set up at the door, and tickets will be sold prior to the concert. Occasionally we host an event that will require tickets purchased at the Schine Box Office, located on the atrium level of Schine Student Center. The Schine Box Office website also offers opportunities to purchase tickets online.
