Angel Funds

Be an angel. Give students access to the arts.

UNC-Chapel Hill students may purchase tickets to any Carolina Performing Arts performance for only $10. Carolina Covenant Scholars are offered free tickets to all performances.

We believe the performing arts are central to the academic mission and the life of a great public university. With the support of student fees and private donors to the Student Ticket Angel Fund, we are able to offer $10 student tickets and free tickets to Carolina Covenant Scholars to every CPA performance in Memorial Hall.

Our goal is to ensure that every Carolina student has the opportunity to experience world-class artists, to enjoy the mastery of Yo-Yo Ma or Joshua Bell, to see the athletic power of the Alvin Ailey Dance Company or the Bolshoi Ballet, to witness the majesty of the Cleveland Orchestra or the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Encounters with the performing arts are life-changing events and impact students’ intellectual and personal development in profound ways.

All gifts to the Student Ticket Angel Fund offset the losses we incur on subsidized student tickets. Help continue the tradition of student access with a donation today. Be an angel.

“I have been to so many great performances, from musical favorites to ensembles I’d never previously heard of that I never would have been able to attend if paying regular ticket prices. Carolina Performing Arts has been a huge part of my cultural education and something I will cherish in my memories of UNC. Student access made my experience possible.”
