Goodbye, Out Front!

It has been so wonderful to experience live music outdoors with you all at our street bar under the stars. It was a safe place where we could gather with friends, family, and the community. We'll look back fondly on the memories we've made with local musicians like Black Star Pirates, House Call Soul, Oakadelics, among so many others that we know and love.

Not to mention our CCP-run karaoke fundraisers, which were not only incredibly fun but raised money for our Concert Career Pathways education program! Thank you all for your support, and if you would like to contribute to the fun and creative events that our future cohorts will throw, we always accept donations through our website.

See you indoors soon!


Can't Wait For You To Meet Concert Career Pathway's Cohort 6!

The UC Theatre loves being able to help young people start their dream careers in the live music industry! We can't wait to introduce you all to 28 new participants to CCP Cohort 6 and The UC Theatre Family. This will be our biggest cohort yet! 

Our education team is finalizing the new cohort as we speak and the program will be starting up this October. Soon you will see interns and mentees running around the theatre and getting hands-on experience working at shows!
