Concert and Event Information 

The Austin Peay Department of Music hosts more than 100+ performances each semester. Events take place in the 600-seat George & Sharon Mabry Concert Hall, the newly-constructed Heydel Hall in the Art & Design Building, and other venues across campus and the local community.

Performances feature APSU student and faculty soloists, chamber, and large ensembles. Performances also feature guest artists sponsored by the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts or the Clarksville Community Concert Association. APSU is also proud to host Clarksville's professional chamber orchestra, the Gateway Chamber Orchestra who performs six masterworks concerts per season.

We hope you can join us for many of these performances. Most events are free and open to the public. More information, including dates, times, locations and ticket information, are available on the side links on this page.
