Introducing University Macaroni Society


We’ve heard the stomachs growling in the quietest moments of the symphony. And our ushers have spotted the Zingerman’s sandwiches that some ticketbuyers snuck into the balcony. The world has changed, and UMS recognizes our audience’s increased appetite for comforting sustenance while attending evening events. That’s why today, we are thrilled to launch an exciting culinary complement to your next UMS performance…

UMS Food Truck

Introducing University Macaroni Society. Parked outside of your favorite Ann Arbor concert venues, our new food truck offers convenient carryout…for you to carry in and enjoy during the performance, complete with compostable, noise-reducing packaging and utensils.

Enjoy classics from around the world, starring recipes featured in UMS’s beloved cookbook, Bravo ! : Recipes, Legends and Lore. From Cecilia Bartoli’s “Family Cicche,” to Bill T. Jones’s Sage Fusilli and Martin Katz’s Risotto all’erbe, our menu offers delicious options for everyone.

It’s been a pleasure to safely welcome audiences back to our iconic venues this season. And we guarantee that everything UMS presents — from stage to plate — will be well seasoned!

We hope you enjoyed a bit of April Fools’ Day fun from UMS. We couldn’t help ourselves. 🍝

While unfortunately, we cannot enjoy food in our historic performance spaces, we hope you enjoy some of UMS staff’s favorite dishes at home:
