KU School of Music kicks off performance series with Collage Concert on Sept. 16

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

LAWRENCE – A Jayhawk tradition that celebrates the new academic year, the 17th Annual KU Collage Concert will be held at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 16. The performance is the first of 20 concerts featuring School of Music students at the Lied Center of Kansas this school year. Tickets to the concert are $16 for adults and $11 for seniors and children. KU students with valid ID will be admitted free.

Pulling from the world-class talents of faculty and students from across the School of Music, the Collage Concert allows audiences to experience KU’s vibrant music community. This year’s concert will feature the KU Concert Choir and Chamber Singers, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble I, Symphony Orchestra, Brass Ensemble and Percussion Group as well as talented student soloists. As in years past, the concert will end with a performance by the KU Marching Jayhawks.

“With so much variety packed into a single concert, the Collage Concert is a great way to experience all that the KU School of Music has to offer,” said Robert Walzel, KU School of Music dean. “The concert is an evening that our faculty, staff, students and audiences look forward to each year.”

The proceeds from the Collage Concert benefit the Student Opportunity Fund, which helps students interested in traveling throughout the United States and abroad to defray the costs of participating in conferences and competitions.

The Collage Concert will be live streamed for those who cannot attend the performance. A link to the live stream is available at livestream.com/liedcenter.
