Collage returns for 2022


One of the most thrilling musical experiences at the University of Kansas is back. Collage, the annual concert to help usher in the start of the school year, kicks off September 17th at 7:30 p.m. at the Lied Center of Kansas. Admission to the event is free.

The Collage Concert brings the best and brightest musical Jayhawks together and allows the community to experience KU’s vibrant music culture through performances from the KU School of Music students and faculty. This year’s concert features the KU Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Choir, a percussion group, Jazz Ensemble I, Wind Ensemble, as well as performances by student soloists and Chamber ensembles. The spectacular concert event always concludes with a rousing performance by the Marching Jayhawks.

“Collage is a potpourri of all that is excellent and fun in the KU School of Music,” says Dean Robert Walzel. “This is an evening not to be missed!”

All proceeds from the Collage Concert benefit the Student Opportunity Fund, a resource providing essential financial support for School of Music students participating in competitions, presentations and conferences throughout the country and beyond. Additionally, a special fundraiser for the School of Music Student Opportunity Fund will take place in the Pavilion at the Lied Center prior to the evening’s performance. Tickets to that event start at $100, and you can register online at
