Popular concert kicks off Fine Arts' season


Show marks debut of 3 new KU music directors

The Marching Jayhawks stormed last year’s annual Collage Concert, launching the KU School of Fine Arts’ performance and exhibition season on an emotional high.

Now the highly anticipated concert is back for a third year, set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, in the Lied Center of Kansas.

The concert, a showcase of works by KU Fine Arts visual and performing arts students and faculty in a fast-paced, nonstop, 90-minute format, brings together the four units of the school — the departments of art, design, music and dance, and the Lied Center of Kansas. Proceeds benefit the school.

This year’s event marks the debut of three directors in the music department: John P. Lynch, director of bands; John Paul Johnson, director of choral activities; and Timothy J. Hankewich, director of orchestras.

Among those slated to perform are the Kansas Brass Quintet, a woodwind duo, Instrumental Collegium Musicum, combined choirs, Saxophone Quartet I, Percussion Ensemble I, the Men’s Glee Club, and faculty and members of the University Dance Company.

Representing the visual arts, four videos exploring “Expanded Disciplines in Art and Design” will be broadcast at intervals during the concert. A collaborative video by art, music and dance faculty also will air.

Tickets are $7 general; $5 for students and seniors. Available at all KU box offices, including the Lied Center, 864-2787; Murphy Hall, 864-3982; and SUA in the Kansas Union, 864-SHOW. For more information, call 864-3421.
