Miller Theatre is proud to be Columbia University’s professional arts producer. Our mission, as established at our founding in 1988, is to enrich the artistic life of the campus by bringing to Columbia professional performances and arts events of the highest caliber and making them easily accessible to Columbia students, faculty, and staff. On average, students comprise 20% of our audience, a figure that exceeds the national average for campus presenters.
We make discounted tickets for Columbia students, faculty, and staff available for every single performance we produce. For many seasons now, we’ve held our generous discounts steady: we offer a $7 flat rate for Columbia student tickets for all performances, and 40% off single ticket prices for Columbia faculty and staff.
Browse our calendar to purchase tickets for an upcoming event, or visit our Ticket Information page for details on how to purchase.
We work regularly with student groups and faculty to create and produce special outreach events for the Columbia community. Events vary, from pre-concert receptions to open rehearsals to meet-the-composer opportunities, either in the classroom or at Miller Theatre. On September 17, 2015, we will open our 2015-16 season with CU at Opening Night, a free students-only reception. In 2013, we worked with Music Humanities professors to bring more than 150 undergraduate students to one of our Early Music performances and hosted an exclusive talk-back with the artists.
If you’re interested in working with us to design a special program for your group or class, please email Eric M. Gewirtz, Director of Marketing & Outreach, at email@example.com or call 212-854-2380.
