1322: Music of the United States In Memoriam of Dr. Michael J. Budds Sunday, April 25, 2021 Jesse Auditorium Buy Tickets Pods: $25 - $125 Presented by Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia The University Concert Series has always supported an educational mission in everything we do. For many years, Dr. Michael J. Budds was the education coordinator for the University Concert Series. In addition to concert notes and educational writings, Dr. Budds presented a program of free pre-performance lectures. The informal talks included commentary on the works to be performed and were both entertaining and enlightening. While we mourn his loss, we are proud to honor his legacy with this presentation. This concert features Mizzou students and ensembles performing some of Dr. Budds’ favorite music from the class “History of Music in the United States,” and honors his lifelong commitment to American Music. Seating in Missouri Theatre and Jesse Auditorium has changed due to COVID-19. For the present time we are not selling individual seats. Seating groups for household units from one to five people have been arranged throughout our auditoriums to keep you safe. We refer to these groups as pods. When purchasing a pod, you are agreeing that your seatmates are part of your household bubble, meeting CDC guidelines. The purchaser of the pod must supply contact information including phone number and email address and will be the point of contact for any contact tracing needs. Each pod in the auditorium is a minimum of 6 feet from any point of any other pod. Pods cannot be changed in number of seats, but you may purchase a larger pod than you really need to increase distance.
