CU Presents

CU Presents offers more than 50 ticketed performances each season. An irresistible blend of technique and personality has made the Grammy Award-winning Takács Quartet a favorite for more than 20 years. And the quartet always sells out. For more than 70 years, the CU Artist Series has brought the world’s finest jazz, classical, world music and dance to Boulder. CU Opera is one of the country’s most exciting university programs, highlighting exceptional vocalists. The CU Holiday Festival sells out every year because of lively programming and the atmosphere in Macky Auditorium.

Macky Auditorium

With more than 2,000 seats, Macky is an historic concert hall on the University of Colorado campus in Boulder. During the past 100 years, Macky has hosted personalities such as Yo-Yo Ma, Wynton Marsalis, the Dalai Lama and Jerry Garcia.
