  • 1st place ($500) - Armin Kofler - Carpe Diem

Free Active Military Admission: Active duty military personnel with ID (limit 1 per ID) will receive free admission to this concert.

Student Rush:  Student Rush tickets for $5.00 (cash only) will be available at the door 15 minutes before the concert start time with a current student ID (applies to all students, including high school students), limit 1 per ID, subject to availability. (For example, if a concert is close to selling out, this discount will NOT be offered.)

Children under the age of 5 will not be admitted to the concert. Parents should use their best judgment when bringing children who are age 5 or older, based on their ability to sit quietly through a 2-hour concert, out of respect to other audience members, and since we record each concert. These children must have a ticket and be able to sit in an unaccompanied seat. We do not have a ticket discount specifically for children.
