Northeastern Illinois University is pleased to announce the 24th season of its Jewel Box Series. The eight-concert series begins Sept. 29 and runs Fridays at 7:30 p.m. throughout the academic year on the Main Campus. 

“One of the goals of the Jewel Box Series is to celebrate numerous genres of music and I’m proud of the fact that the 2023-2024 season does just that,” said Christie Miller, director of Northeastern’s Office of Cultural Events and Community and Professional Education. “From welcoming back to our stage the renowned jazz vocalist Grażyna Auguścik with NEIU faculty bassist Matt Ulery, to featuring first-time Jewel Box performers, like the folk/Americana band The Wildwoods, the Los Angeles-based trío romántico group Tres Souls and viral sensations Kings Return, this season is truly set to showcase the beauty of diverse musical stylings.”

Tickets are $10 for students, $18.50 for seniors and Northeastern faculty and staff, and $26 for all other patrons. Tickets can be purchased online, at the Welcome Desk and Box Office on the Main Campus or by calling (773) 442-4636. 

Discounts are available for subscriptions. Use code Jewelbox4 for a four-concert subscription. If you select the eight-concert subscription, a discount will be automatically applied to your purchase.
