STUDENTS ARE OUR PRIMARY FOCUS AT
TEXAS PERFORMING ARTS
AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN

925 $10 STUDENT TICKETS SOLD
FOR THE
BÉLA FLECK / ZAKIR HUSSAIN / EDGAR MEYER
PERFORMANCE AT BASS CONCERT HALL!

University of Texas students are at the core of our commitment to the academic mission, and Texas Performing Arts demonstrates that commitment by engaging students in all aspects of the performing arts business. Students learn as they work in our audio, costume, properties, lighting and scene shops; alongside our staff in our marketing, development and business offices; and as ushers, stagehands and house managers in our many venues.

Texas Performing Arts also engages the larger student population by offering $10 student tickets to each of our world-class fine arts performances, subsidized by over $100,000 annually in ticket discounts. A prime example occurred recently when 925 student tickets were sold for the Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain & Edgar Meyer performance at Bass Concert Hall, which kicked-off the 2009 – 2010 Texas Performing Arts season!

By engaging students as patrons and/or employees, we are striving to create the next generation of life long arts professionals and patrons.
