We offer chairs on the floor or elevated seating. There are advantages to both types of seating; chairs on the floor have you closer to the performers, while the elevated seating provides a more global view of the entire performance.

You do not need a parking pass to leave your vehicle on campus during a concert.
The closest places to park are in the two lots labeled “MH/C,” located south of 12th Avenue South and across from Olson Forum and Memorial Auditorium.
The parking lots labeled “H” and “MH” to the southwest of Memorial Auditorium will be designated entirely for handicapped parking.
- You may also park on any of the nearby streets. Please abide by any street signs that are posted.
- If there are open spots in any other lot on campus, feel free to use them.
When should I arrive to the concert? What time do the doors open? What happens if I arrive late to the concert?
We suggest that you arrive 20 to 30 minutes before the concert. Doors will open one hour before each performance. Any late arrivals will be held at the door for 15 minutes while the performers move in and the concert starts. After that time, ushers will walk with you to your specific seat.
Those arriving early can hear the Tintinnabula Handbell Choir perform in the Offutt Concourse before each concert.
How long is the performance?
The concert is 90 minutes long.
Can I bring my kids?
These are family-friendly concerts, but please know that the atmosphere is similar to a church service with no applause between pieces. Those with young children are encouraged to secure an aisle seat. Sharing a seat with a child is not allowed.
Can I take pictures or record video?
Flash photos and video recording are not allowed.
How big is the mural?
The mural is 24 feet tall and 176 feet wide, which creates a canvas almost as large as two full-sized basketball courts.
