Opportunities for Students

Get Involved

Part of the mission of Carolina Performing Arts is to integrate the arts into the life of the University. As a student, you may have seen the results of this mission in your classes – perhaps a professor required that you attend a performance, or an artist may have visited your classroom to discuss their work. We also believe that the arts can play a formative role in your entire collegiate experience, even outside of the classroom. If you were ever inspired by an artist, moved by music, or wanted to build a career in the arts or non-profit world, CPA has several opportunities for students that may be of interest to you:

$10 Tickets for UNC Students

Our goal is to ensure that every Carolina student has the opportunity to experience world-class artists. With the support of student fees and private donors to the Student Ticket Angel fund, we are able to offer $10 UNC student tickets and free tickets to Carolina Covenant Scholars to every CPA performance in Memorial Hall.

Visit the Memorial Hall Box Office with your OneCard to redeem your $10 ticket, or buy tickets online using your Onyen and password. Student tickets purchased over the phone will be held at the Box Office until a OneCard can be presented.

Purchase your tickets early to get the best seats. Student tickets go on sale for the 2015/2016 season on June 3rd.

Student Ambassadors Program

We invite undergraduates from any major to participate in the newly-launched Carolina Performing Arts (CPA) Student Ambassadors program. The program aims to foster compassionate dialogue among students and peers via this season’s year-long exploration of Muslim cultures through music, dance and performance.

Student will have the opportunity to attend performances, engage with artists, and participate in thoughtful discussion over dinner with their fellow Ambassadors.

A cohort of 20 students will be selected to attend performances as well as corresponding programs and share their experiences with the Carolina community. Students will attend an orientation workshop on Sunday, August 28, 2016 at Gerrard Hall and a minimum of five performances throughout the season.
