Bullock Series

Bullock Series events are held on Wednesdays in the Dalton Center Recital Hall on the main campus of Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Mich. The series showcases guest artists, WMU faculty artists and ensembles, and WMU student ensembles. Each event starts with a pre-concert talk  at 7 p.m. Information about concerts can be obtained by calling (269) 387-4678.

Bullock Series events are presented by the Donald P. Bullock Music Performance Institute. Established in the fall of 1985 and renamed in 1988 in honor of its founder, the Bullock Performance Institute's mission is to add to the already rich cultural life of Kalamazoo by creating opportunities to develop closer personal and artistic ties between audience and performer. The Bullock Performance Institute has presented events ranging from formal evening concerts to daytime educational outreach events for local audiences, college students, seniors and youths. As a result, the classical music appreciation and training of student performers and community members will be enhanced, and music lovers, in general, will have the opportunity to know guest artists more personally.

The 75-minute no-intermission performance begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. with a pre-concert talk  at 7 p.m.

All Bullock Series performances are held in the Dalton Center Recital Hall.

  • Purchase Tickets

    Purchase your tickets in advance online. Ticket sales will be available in the Dalton Center ticket office immediately before the performance (only card purchases, no cash sales or will-call). You can print your ticket and bring it with you or display it on your smartphone when you enter.

  • Live Stream

    Bullock Series concerts are also live streamed on our YouTube channel in case you aren't able to make the show in person. Make sure to subscribe to receive notifications about upcoming performances from the School of Music.
