Programs and artists are subject to change. If an artist cancels an appearance, UMS makes every effort to substitute that performance with a comparable artist. Refunds will only be offered if a substitute cannot be found, or in the event of a date change. Service charges are not refundable. UMS will not cancel performances because of inclement weather.
Ticket Donations & Unused Tickets
Tickets may be donated to UMS until the published start time of the concert. A receipt will be issued for tax purposes. Unused tickets that are returned after the performance begins are not eligible for UMS Credit or as a donation.
Tickets can be purchased online, via phone at 734.764.2538, or in-person at the Michigan League Ticket Office. Visit our Contact Page for more information.
Please use discretion in choosing to bring a child to a UMS performance. Remember, everyone must have a ticket regardless of age. Age recommendations for performances are posted on the artist performance pages.
Authorized Ticketing Agent
UMS assumes no liability for tickets purchased through unauthorized sales channels, including Craigslist, eBay, StubHub, and other secondary market or ticket broker services. We strongly advise against purchasing tickets from any source other than the UMS Ticket Office or ums.org.
Tickets purchased from unauthorized sources may be stolen, counterfeit, or otherwise compromised, and if so, are not valid for event admission. If you are unsure whether a ticket seller has been authorized to sell UMS tickets, please contact the Ticket Office at 734.764.2538 prior to purchasing from that source.
