UW-Parkside is blessed with an exceptional location for students studying performing arts. Students are exposed to numerous cultural events on-campus. In addition, we are just minutes from the Chicago and Milwaukee metropolitan areas, which provide our students with hundreds of first rate performing arts opportunities.
The new Fridays@Noon Concert Series is a popular, highly successful series of free performances usually presented each Friday at the noon hour. An interesting and diverse range of performances are scheduled each semester including solo and chamber recitals, large group concerts, and lecture/recitals.
In addition to the Noon Concert Series, there are numerous evening and weekend concerts. These include UW-Parkside ensemble concerts as well as junior and senior student recitals.
