Jewel Box Series announces 2015-16 schedule

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Northeastern Illinois University’s Jewel Box Series will return for the 2015-16 season with another spectacular lineup. Now in its 16th year, the series has consistently brought renowned artists from all over the world to perform in Northeastern’s acoustically superior Recital Hall and spacious Auditorium.

The eight-concert series will kick off on Friday, Sept. 18, and offer music from a variety of genres through May 20, 2016.

“It's impossible for me to choose which concert I am most excited about in the coming season; each artist or ensemble has their own unique sound,” Office of Cultural Events Director Christie Miller said.

Tickets are $5, $17.50 and $25, and will be available online beginning July 15. Four- and eight-concert subscriptions are also available at the NEIU Information Center and Box Office or by calling (773) 442-4636.
