Curriculum ConnectionsLast year more than 1,600 UC Davis students attended Mondavi Center presentations through the Curriculum Connections program. Curriculum Connections provides $5 student tickets when a Mondavi Center event is assigned in a UC Davis course.

With over 80 performances in music, dance, theater, film and speakers, faculty members from many fields can find a presentation to enrich the content of their courses. Explore this season’s offerings here.

Many UC Davis Faculty members have used Curriculum Connections to support their course work and to expose students to leading artists and speakers from around the world.

Faculty and teaching assistants who have a class attending a Mondavi Center Presenting Program performance through Curriculum Connections may each receive a single complimentary ticket for the same performance.

If you plan to incorporate a Mondavi Center performance into your course, please submit your request via this online form.

Please keep in mind:

  • Ticket quantities are limited and are based upon availability.
  • Once we confirm that tickets are available, we will issue vouchers that can be redeemed for tickets.
  • Vouchers are for use by students in the class only. One ticket per student in the class is guaranteed for purchase at $5 only until the redemption deadline assigned upon approval of request.
  • Tickets must be purchased in person at the Mondavi Center Ticket Office, and a student ID must be provided with the ticket voucher.
  • You will be asked to email us your class syllabus for our records.

Thank you for considering Curriculum Connections.


The five-dollar ticket program makes it possible for each and every student in my large lecture classes to experience the music we study—often performed by the very same artists whose recordings we listen to— in a magnificent setting. For these students—all members of the iPod generation—the opportunity to experience live music at its best is truly transformative.

I can’t imagine teaching my Psychology of Music class without having the students go and hear, and then write about, a live concert. The Curriculum Connections program provides an extremely affordable way for students to experience world-class music they might not otherwise hear, in a world-class concert hall. For many, it is a first-time experience that is simply mind-blowing.

—Petr Janata, Professor, Psychology, Center for Mind and Brain, UC Davis
