School of Music Special Events

Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, the College of Fine Arts and the Kirkland Fine Arts Center will be either postponing or canceling all arts events on campus until further notice.
With time and your patience, we will respond to requests for refunds for purchased tickets.  However, should you wish to forego a refund, we will be grateful for your donation to the arts at Millikin University. 

In the event that Kirkland Fine Arts Center or the College of Fine Arts is able to reschedule an event, patrons will be notified of the new event details as soon as possible. 
The arts at Millikin thrive through your patronage and support. We appreciate your patience as well as your generosity and understanding in the challenging days and weeks to come.
