UMS Season Tickets

2021/22 Season Tickets will be available Monday, May 17 at 10 am!

We cannot wait to welcome audiences back in the 2021/22 season! You are our first priority, and we will always put the health and safety of our patrons first and foremost as we look forward to returning to live performance. We’ve put together new Safety Protocols for Live Events and FAQ about the months ahead to help, and our ticket office is here for you.

Please note that our curated series season ticket packages are not available for sale this season. We have also reduced the minimum number of events to qualify for Series:You from 5 to 4, making it easier than ever to purchase our most popular and flexible series.

Curated Series

Past Choral Union and Chamber Arts Subscribers: We are not offering a curated Choral Union or Chamber Arts Series this season, but will do our best to seat you in or as close as possible to the seats you have held in the past, taking into account the capacity restrictions that exist at the time of seating.

Your seats from the 2019/20 season will be held for you when we return to curated packages in the 2022/23 season.

Installment billing.

We are working on some new options to make this easier and to allow up to four installments for your subscription order:

For U-M Employees
If you are a U-M employee and wish to use payroll deduction: Please place your order by June 18, and you’ll be billed over four pay periods, once monthly in June, July, August, and September. Donations will be deducted in monthly installments beginning in July 2020. NOTE: Payroll deduction requests must be mailed or emailed to Payroll Deduction requests will not be accepted online. Due to the current coronavirus restrictions, we are unable to accept payroll deduction requests by fax or in-person.

For Everyone Else
If you are NOT a U-M employee and wish to take advantage of installment billing: We are able to process installment billing by phone only at this time. If you wish to mail in your order form, please indicate a number where you can be reached during the day, and a member of our team will call you for your credit card number. During the stay-at-home period when our staff is working remotely, we strongly discourage you from mailing in your credit card number.

Free parking.

Order at least six events by Friday, July 2 and receive free parking for central campus performances in the Power Center structure (Fletcher Street), a close walk to most performance venues. Be sure to check the box on the order form (or leave a note in online orders) if you wish to take advantage of this offer, as parking passes are not automatically included. Note that U-M parking structures, including the Fletcher Street structure, may not be open for off-campus performances.

And in addition to these tangible perks, subscribers also enjoy:

Personal Fulfillment.

Let’s be honest — it’s hard to find those moments of personal escape, and sometimes we have to schedule them into our lives. UMS takes you to a place where the imagination is thriving, and a UMS series allows you to invest in yourself while supporting the quality of life in our community.

Building Relationships.

When you attend with family or friends, you create memories with people who are important to you, whether you join up for dinner before or meet up at the performance. And even if you attend alone, you can build lasting friendships with others who love the arts.


We hope you’ll take a chance and discover something new this year — an artist you’ve never heard of, an art form you’ve never experienced, a hands-on experience through our highly-lauded education programs…With UMS, you can count on unexpected moments that will stay with you for a lifetime.
