UNI School of Music to host outdoor concert series on UNI campus

UNI NEWS SERVICES – The UNI School of Music will host a series of outdoor concerts on the UNI campus from Sept. 25 through Nov. 20, weather permitting. 

“With indoor concerts and live audiences largely absent from the world at this time,” School of Music Communications and Operations Coordinator Caroline Francis said, “our ensemble conductors wanted to work to find a way to bring live music to campus this fall while offering the extremely important music education experience of live performance to our students.”

  • Tuesday, Sept. 29, 6 p.m. Jazz Bands One, Two and Three, east of West Gym

  • Friday, Oct. 9, 5:30 p.m. Jazz Combos, east of West Gym
  • Friday, Oct.r 23, 4:30 p.m. Panther Marching Band, on Lawther Field
  • Friday, Nov. 20, 4:30 p.m. Panther Marching Band, on Lawther Field

Audience members should plan to bring their own chair or blanket. Socially distanced lawn markings have been added to the grassy field between West Gym and the Campanile.
