First class all the way

The collective effervescence felt as we reconnected with live performance at the Jacobs School of Music this past year was invigorating, and we are grateful to all who joined us in support of our students as they curate their lives in the performing arts.

The journey continues, and we are delighted to share with you our 2022-23 Conrad Prebys Performance Season, packed with all the topflight opera, ballet, and concert productions you’ve come to expect from the Jacobs School’s tradition of excellence.

Once again, you have the opportunity to be transported along with our incredible students as they soar to ever new heights in pursuit of their dreams.

So please come fly with us—we can’t wait to welcome you aboard!
