UWG Music: Part of your community

The Department of Music is active with the West Georgia community and puts on many concerts and events throughout the year. All concerts are open to the public! In addition to our concerts, we actively engage with neighboring schools and organizations to promote music throughout the region, including providing guest artists, master classes, and unique opportunities to up-and-coming musicians.

 Be sure to check us out at one - or many - of our concerts throughout the year. We look forward to seeing you in the audience!

Tickets and admission

Admission to all concerts are free (except where noted).
Events held in the Townsend Center for the Performing Arts (TCPA) are ticketed and may be picked up in the TCPA box office or online.
