Intermission is finally over

Was that the longest intermission ever, or what?! Even the lines at the restrooms are gone!

However, when you return to your seat in the Musical Arts Center, don't be surprised to discover that we already took it—literally! But no worries, we put it back better than ever—with a complete refurbishing of the seating, improved accessibility, and other renovations to the MAC.

Now, we are thrilled to be able to invite you to a full, in-person season of Jacobs School of Music productions during our Conrad Prebys Centennial Performance Season—commemorating the school’s one-hundredth anniversary!

We can’t wait to welcome you back and celebrate together. And what a celebration it will be.
