Michigan Football

Coach Jim Harbaugh might have had his satellite camps banned by the NCAA, but his recruiting efforts are still paying off very well this year. His stance in favor of satellite camps, and the momentum from his top-5 2016 class, could well be the catalyst for a long-string of incredible classes to come.

The Bad Plus + Joshua Redman

The combination of one of the most celebrated young Jazz saxophonists in the world with one of the most controversial Jazz trio’s has created one amazing quartet.

You can experience this crazy fusion in a quartet just as likely to play a version of a Nirvana hit as a Coltrane classic, on Saturday April 23rd at the Michigan Theater as part of the University Musical Society Season. The show will start at 8 p.m.
