What is UR Concerts?
UR Concerts brings musical performances to campus for all students to enjoy! With free Coffeehouse performances by University students in Starbucks on Friday nights and headliner concerts each semester by acts like Janelle Monae and Matt Nathanson, UR Concerts works to ensure that all students can find something to enjoy during the academic year. In addition to a show each semester, UR Concerts coordinates the Yellowjacket Weekend and Dandelion Day performers.
What kinds of new programming is UR Concerts doing this year?
Last semester, UR Concerts added a new committee: Roc Thursdays. Roc Thursdays is an entirely student run initiative that works to put on inexpensive concerts featuring local and campus bands. By allowing students to run not only the show itself but also all aspects of production ranging from contract drafting to stage management, it gives students firsthand experience in the concert business.
What kinds of concerts are coming up?
Starbucks has live music every Friday night from 10pm to 12pm featuring different campus performers. Roc Thursdays has its first show of the semester on March 8th.
How can I get involved in UR Concerts?
UR Concerts meets every Wednesday at 8pm in the Ruth Merrill Center (across from the Common Market). You can also join their mailing list by visiting their page on the Campus Club Connection. To perform at one of their events, you can email their Coffeehouse Manager or email RocThursdays@gmail.com.
