Housed at the University of Michigan, UMS has been presenting world-class performances by professional orchestras, dance and theater companies, jazz artists, and music ensembles from across the globe on campus for over 140 years.
At UMS, we believe that the arts are vital to the human experience because they expand the ways in which we think about the world and how we approach the complicated issues and challenges of our time. Through the stories presented on the stage, we are able shift our perspective and identify the many ways in which we are all more alike rather than different. The stories heard on Michigan Radio offer similar opportunities for empathic approaches to understanding the world around us.
We hear, time and time again, from the artists we present about how gracious, curious, and well-informed UMS audiences are. And we’re thrilled to have a community partner like Michigan Radio connecting us with those remarkable individuals who delight in the uncommon and engaging experiences that we bring to the stage.
