* NOTE: Construction is scheduled near the Memorial Union building throughout much of summer 2013. All concerts are currently scheduled to be held on the MU Quad, unless noted otherwise. Seating is available for the outdoor concerts, but if you'd prefer to bring your own or a blanket, please feel free to do so. During poor weather conditions, construction conflicts, or other special campus events that restrict access to our normal outdoor performance area, notices will be posted nearby and the concert will likely be moved inside to the MU Main Lounge (1st floor).
In partnership with MU Program Council (MUPC) and MU Events, the logistics and management of the weekly concerts support service learning opportunities for students while providing our audience with some great, free summertime entertainment during the work week. Students from MUPC select performers from around the northwest, from a variety of genres and coordinate the entire event. Students from MU Events manage the venue (stage, chairs, performance area) along with the sound/electronic requirements of the performers.
Performers: if you are interested in becoming a part of the Summer Session - Wednesdays @ Noon Concert lineup, please contact the Summer Session office by email.
