Free Bert’s Ticket for undergraduate U-M first-year and second-year students
Bert Askwith (1911-2015) was a true victor for the arts and an incredible advocate for the U-M student experience. Bert pledged to buy every first- and second-year U-M undergraduate student a free ticket to a UMS performance and provide a second ticket for a friend for just $10.
Eligible performances for the Winter semester are available now. All performances on the 2019/20 season are eligible for the Bert’s Ticket offer, though quantities may be limited for some performances.
Or, stop by the Michigan League Ticket Office to claim your free Bert’s Ticket. Ticket Office Hours.
Bert’s Ticket program is made possible with support from Patti Askwith Kenner.

Plan Ahead: Inventory is Limited
For every production, UMS designates a significant number of seats that qualify for the student discount. If these seats sell out, UMS will monitor seat inventory and sales demand to assess whether additional student seats can be made available. If it is possible to increase the number of student seats, they will become available each Tuesday at 10 am.
Update 9/3/19: The student ticket allocations for the Emanuel Ax/Leonidas Kavakos/Yo-Yo Ma concert, Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s December recital, and Zakir Hussain are currently sold out (however, tickets do still remain for Sheku Kanneh-Mason with the Chineke! Orchestra in April).
At this point, we are unable to release additional student tickets based on overall demand. However, please check back closer to the performance date to see if additional student tickets become available.

The UMS Student Committee is an official student organization at the University of Michigan! Students focus on connecting the campus community to the performing arts through UMS performances and experiences.
Each season, the Student Committee creates and executes marketing plans for a select number of UMS performances. Students have found that the committee is a really satisfying, social way to stay connected to the arts during school. To top it off, you’ll get two free tickets to a UMS show for every four hours you volunteer.
You can join at any time! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
