CONCERT BREW WEEK EVENT
Concordia College Music Organizations will present the Echo Band Concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, in the Centrum, Knutson Campus Center.
The Echo Concert Band will perform a variety of works by American composers and a vocal composition, "Whither Must I Wander?" by English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. The band is conducted by Dr. Scott A. Jones, and student directors
Josh McGowan, Sarah Kjorlien, Nicole Pomerleau and Zachary Dierickx all seniors.
Students in the Echo Band are engaged in a collaborative project in connection with Concordia’s BREW Week. BREW - Becoming Responsibly Engaged in the World is the theme of Concordia’s core curriculum. The Campus Service Commission has organized a week dedicated to BREW which will engage students in service, leadership and global awareness. Tuesday’s topic is Hunger and Homelessness.
The 87 members of the band are collaborating with the FM Coalition for Homeless Persons as well as a book read and discussion related to homelessness titled “Under the Overpass.” The concert will serve as the campus-wide BREW Week evening event for the day including informational tables in the atrium, the presentation of a homelessness documentary shot in Fargo-Moorhead and the distribution of copies of the “Under the Overpass” books (donated by the publisher) to interested students in attendance.
The concert is free and open to the public.
