If you’re looking for high art at a low price, you could end up sitting high–very, very high–in Hill Auditorium. The University Musical Society sets aside 275 seats at its Hill concerts to sell for $10 apiece, and most of them are up by the rafters. “Lovers of big orchestra concerts will argue that not only are these seats the cheapest, but also the best,” says UMS marketing director Sara Billman. “The acoustics are incredible.”

UMS also sets aside cheap seats for performances at Rackham and the Power Center–prices vary depending on the show but “never exceed $20,” says Billman. Bargain hunters have to move fast, though–for big-name events, she says, they sell out “very quickly.”
