CU performing arts embraces digitally formatted programs

CU Presents is proud to announce that for the 2021-22 academic year, we will retire printed programs for all free, non-ticketed performances and instead embrace digitally formatted programs for those events. The unexpected shift initially took place during the 2020-21 academic year when all events were presented virtually and has yielded many benefits. Beyond the obvious environmental impact due to reduced paper consumption, digital programs also enhance accessibility as well as time and financial flexibility.

Programs will be available at least one week in advance to download at, where you will be able to locate and access all ensemble and faculty performance programs, as well as those for student recitals. Digital programs for ticketed CU Presents events, such as Takács Quartet performance, will be available later in the year. A QR code linking to will be posted in all major venues, and digital program files will be mobile-friendly, Google Translate-optimized PDFs.

CU Presents continues to address community concerns regarding audience behavior, accessibility, archiving and finalizing programs, and we welcome your feedback as we pilot the system this fall.

CU Presents is excited for our upcoming season, and is looking forward to bringing audiences back into our concert halls! Thank you for joining us in making more eco-friendly choices.
