Performances & Events

On-campus visits and in person concerts are suspended for the safety of current students, faculty, and staff, and we will resume on-campus visitation when the University deems it safe to do so. Until that time, please join us for our virtual concerts!

Make music an integral part of your life! With over 400 concerts, recitals, and masterclasses each year, the Penn State School of Music provides a wide variety of excellent events offered at no charge or for a small admission fee. Our talented students work hard to present exciting and interesting performances, and they enjoy seeing full houses of enthusiastic concertgoers!

In the event that Penn State suspends or cancels classes and/or activities due to weather, the School of Music will do the same. We will share that information on our webpage and Facebook pages as soon as it becomes available.

All events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.

VISITORS ARE NOT ADVISED TO COME TO CAMPUS AT THIS TIME. ALL CONCERTS IN THE SCHOOL OF MUSIC WILL BE LIVESTREAMED. Visitor parking for concerts is available at the Nittany Parking Deck for an hourly rate. ALL SURFACE LOTS ON THE UNIVERSITY PARK CAMPUS ARE RESERVED. Detailed information is found here.

Our major ensembles, faculty recitals, and studio ensembles are livestreamed throughout the year. Explore and export our schedule to your online calendar.
