UChicago Presents returns for the 2024-2025 season, the concert series’ 81st.

Featuring classical, jazz, blues, and other musical forms, the series spans from October to May.

The series welcomes a range of high-profile guest artists and ensembles. In October, the series hosts Roomful of Teeth; the next month, the Tomeka Reid Stringtet and the Dunedin Consort both pay visits. In the new year, the Takács Quartet and pianist Michelle Cann make appearances in January. February sees Reginald L. Mobley (appearing with AGAVE) and later Imani Winds (appearing with Boston Brass), sharing performances. The Leonkoro Quartet appears in April, and the genre-melding Turtle Island Quartet performs in the series in May.

The Grossman Ensemble, the University’s Chicago Center for Contemporary Composition’s resident group, shares a trio of programs made up entirely of world premieres in December, March, and May. The CSO Chamber Music at UChicago series also offers three programs over the course of the season, in October, February, and April.

The season also includes appearances by organist Renée Anne Louprette (October), ensemble Owls (November), lutenist Thomas Dunford (March), and double bass player Edgar Meyer (April).

Performances outside of classical music include a program called Asian Sound Revolution (October), a recital by jazz artist Melanie Charles (also October), a celebration of Blues music, an appearance by jazz maestro Chief Adjuah (both in January), a jazz tribute to painter Charles White (February), and a performance by Canadian troupe inDANCE (April).
