Welcome to University of Dayton Marketplace

What we do.

Established in 1961 as a speaker and performance series, ArtsLIVE now primarily presents concerts by visiting professional ensembles from around the world.

Our mission is simple: to present outstanding arts experiences, and cultivate cultural curiosity. Each year, the series showcases a broad range of traditions - classical, jazz, and world music - and musicians may travel from as far away as Brazil and Pakistan, to as near as Michigan and New York.

ArtsLIVE events are open to both campus and community. Thanks to support from the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Cityfolk Jazznet and Vanguard Legacy Endowments, tickets are free for University of Dayton students and priced affordably for others.
