Music Performance Updates

We look forward to this year in the new state-of-the-art BYU Music Building. We appreciate the hard work, cooperation and patience from everyone involved in the effort to construct and relocate to the new building. The finishing touches and technical calibration of the Concert and Recital Hall will require additional time before its public debut.

Many events have been impacted by delays to the Music Building; please check the School of Music calendar to see the most up-to-date information regarding events you plan to attend.

Due to ongoing changes to the performance calendar, all School of Music performances for Winter Semester 2023 will now be offered free of charge. Seating will be general admission and will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Patrons who have already purchased tickets for an event hosted by the School of Music will be given a credit on their account valid for a future ticketed performance on campus.
