Concert Attendance Information

The safety of our performers and audiences is of utmost concern and to that end, the NIU School of Music is taking precautions as we open our concerts to the general public. All tickets must be purchased online prior to the event. Attendance will be limited to 50 on each level, with seats blocked off to allow for proper spacing of patrons in the main level and balcony of our 900+ seat Boutell Memorial Concert Hall. The concert hall has been outfitted with seven high-capacity HEPA filters to ensure proper air circulation. Performers are being spaced accordingly on stage and singers are masked throughout performances. We also have limited the duration of our concerts following the best data available to maintain safety. For non-ticketed events, please note you will have to fill out a contact information sheet at the door.
The School of Music at Northern Illinois University combines the best aspects of a conservatory setting with all of the opportunities and benefits of a major research university.

Our more than 60 faculty are nationally, and internationally, recognized performers and mentors dedicated to supporting you and helping you realize your potential as music artists, educators and scholars.

You’ll have incredible opportunities to perform in a wide range of ensembles in everything from jazz to steelband, orchestra to choirs and those devoted to the music of Indonesia, China and Middle East.

We also host a New Music Festival and a World Music Festival annually.
