Music on the Point: Concerts with Personality

As a top-tier university, UBC is home to world-class amenitites and facilities, as well as an incredible pool of talented students and faculty; one of the greatest things about living at UTown@UBC is convenient access to these!

We are very pleased to partner with the renowned UBC School of Music to present Music on the Point: Concerts with Personality, for a third year. This community concert series is perfect for classical music aficionados and novices alike, and features UBC School of Music personalities performing and sharing glimpses – through engaging commentary – of their unique interpretation. Utown @ UBC residents can request free tickets here. 

This year we have four incredible performances lined up at Roy Barnett Hall, a perfect setting for these intimate shows. The concerts will be followed by light refreshments, where guests have the opportunity to mingle with the performers, ask questions and connect with members of the UBC community and others!
