General Admission Policies

With the exception to Music on the Bluff Series events, admission to most MPSOM concerts and recitals is a suggested $10 donation per adult. Children 17 and under are free. Because admission is donation based, we do not offer complimentary tickets to students, faculty, or staff. Your donation directly supports the education of our students and makes all of our public performances possible. We will have staff available at the door to accept cash donations or direct you to a web page to make a donation with a credit card via your mobile device.

Music on the Bluff Series Admission Policies

Bluff Series concerts are $20 reserved seating and are subject to availability.

All Duquesne University students are permitted one (1) complimentary ticket to each Music on the Bluff series concert. Duquesne University faculty and staff are permitted two (2) per ID. Complimentary tickets are subject to availability. Request your complimentary ticket by emailing%20the%20Director%20of%20Music%20Engagement%2C%20Events%2C%20and%20Marketing at least three business days prior to the concert you wish to attend. Complimentary season passes are also available if requested prior to the first concert of the series.

Parking for On-Campus Events

Parking for visitors attending events at the Mary Pappert School of Music is available in the Forbes Avenue Parking Garage. Concert patrons may also park in the Locust Street Parking Garage by crossing over on the seventh floor of the Forbes Avenue Parking Garage (only lease holders may enter at the Locust Garage entrance). 

In the event that PPG Paints Arena or the A.J. Palumbo Center has an event on the same day as a School of Music event, a higher event rate may be enforced. When this occurs, the School of Music will provide patrons an Affiliated Rate Ticket, which will reduce the parking rate to standard evening/weekend rate. 

Check out the University Parking website for more information.
