Since 1879, UMS -- a 2014 National Medal of Arts recipient -- has been bringing internationally renowned music, dance, and theater to southeast Michigan at exceptional venues such as Hill Auditorium, the Power Center, Rackham Auditorium, and more. We make vital contributions to the vibrant cultural community that makes the metro Detroit region an attractive place to live, work, and play.
In addition, last season's audiences of more than 86,000 -- including nearly 12,000 U-M students and 8,000 K-12 students -- had the opportunity to witness more than 60 live performances and participate in more than 125 free or low-cost educational activities.
UMS is a proud commissioner of new work, sponsor of artist residencies, and organizer of collaborative artistic projects. We work passionately and diligently to ensure that metro Detroit will be a major cultural destination for years to come.
