We are the Wisconsin Union Directorate Music Committee. We book, promote, and cover shows every weekend at Memorial Union's Der Rathskeller and The Terrace, and at Union South's The Sett. Additionally, we are responsible for select programming in Memorial Union's Fredric March Play Circle. We've been providing students, staff, and community members with almost exclusively free programming for decades. 

All free events sponsored by WUD Music Committee are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
