The Centre for Musical Arts presents MusicUNB, formerly known as Music on the Hill. The annual concert series runs from September to April in Memorial Hall and features chamber and cutting-edge classical music performances.

We welcome students and community members alike, and offer series packages.

A message from Richard Hornsby, Director, Centre for Musical Arts:

Experiencing live classical music can be a revelation. Getting up close to musicians provides an experience like no other. You can feel the musical vibrations as they play, hear the rosin as the bow moves across the strings of a violin, and be fascinated by the facial expressions and movements of the musicians as they perform in perfect synchronicity.

MusicUNB allows you to experience all of this through engaging concerts in Memorial Hall on the UNB campus. We bring in the finest musical artists from the region and sprinkle them with visiting artists from farther afield to provide quality concerts at reasonable prices.

This year, we’re excited to announce the Contemporary Music Festival curated by UNB musician-in-residence, Nadia Francavilla. Over the course of a weekend in the fall, you’ll experience cutting-edge music, discussion panels, and lectures.

MusicUNB concerts cover a variety of musical styles and eras. There’s something for everyone! You can buy a series pass to gain access to everything (it’s the best deal) or buy individual tickets for the concerts you’re interested in.

Join us and be entertained and inspired!
