In an effort to conserve resources and reduce paper waste, we post our concert programs as electronic documents on this page (see listings, below). If you are not at a computer, you can easily access this page by scanning the QR code at right (for iPhones we recommend the Bakodo barcode scanning app). Programs for past concerts dating back to October 2008 are available in our concerts archive. Click here to connect with the archive.

PLEASE NOTE: As an experimental and new music department, much of our music is very intimate and quiet, for this reason, we request that students preparing concert reports refrain from writing or rustling papers during concerts.  We also respect the artistry of our musicians and adhere to a strict policy of NO LATE SEATING.  Guests arriving late may be turned away or will be asked to enter between pieces.

Please Note: The Department of Music does not take responsibility for the content of external websites, Facebook pages, and other outside UCSD.

 

Copies of concerts performed by the faculty and students of UCSD Music Department are available for educational use only by the performers, composers and faculty involved in the event pursuit to all applicable copyright laws. View our Dubbing Policy for more information.
