Announcing 2012-2013 Season!


It’s an exciting time at UMS. Thanks to your generosity and passion, we are coming off of a monumental season that brought us extraordinary experiences both on and off the performance stage. As we launch our 2012-2013 season, we mark 134 years of UMS and we celebrate 50 years of Chamber Music and 100 years of Hill Auditorium, a world-renowned venue right here in Ann Arbor.

As we look ahead to 2012-2013, we wonder: What will create a stir? What will give you goosebumps? What will make you think? What will get you talking? What will leave you speechless?

The only way to know the answers is to be present, in every meaning of the word.  Our locally cherished and globally respected series of classical music, theater, dance, jazz, and global performances has the ability to challenge, excite, inspire, shift perspective, and ultimately change the way you see the world.
