Seat Campaign

50th Anniversary

On October 18, 1967, the arts in Cache Valley entered a new era with the dedication of the Daryl Chase Fine Arts Center at Utah State University. On October 18, 2017, we began a new chapter  as we celebrated the renovation and enhancement of the Chase Fine Arts Center and introduced Cache Valley to the newly transformed Newel and Jean Daines Concert Hall.

Name a Seat

Name a seat for yourself or honor someone special-- a parent, child, a favorite professor, or in memory of a loved one. The name will be engraved on a plate on the arm of your selected seat.

Seat prices range from $250 to $1,500, with a special $100 section for current USU students (USU students should visit the CCA Box Office in person to purchase seats). USU employees may purchase seats through payroll deduction for up to 24 months, and seats may also be purchased on a 3- 6- or 12-month payment plan with a credit or debit card.

 

You Donation Will Benefit the Students

Unlike most seat campaigns, your donation will not go toward the building project; rather, all proceeds  will be used to establish an endowment to support the students and programs of the Caine College of the Arts. Utah State University is a 501(c)3 corporation, and your donation may be tax deductible (please seek the advice of your financial consultant).

For questions, please contact Adrienne Larson, 435-797-8924.

Please note that naming a seat does not imply ownership of that seat.  Other than specified events, you are not guaranteed to be seated in the named seat when attending performances in the Daines Concert Hall, and purchase of event tickets is still required.

Seat Campaign Donors

Through the generosity of these individuals who purchased seats in the Daines Concert Hall,
the Caine College of the Arts is pleased to establish the CCA Daines Program Endowment Fund,
which will benefit students and programs in the college in perpetuity.
