The Sweet, Sweet Sounds of Semi-Amateur Music

You’ve eaten your fill from three, count them — three feeding opportunities this morning.  Now, put a cap on this glorious day with four, yes, four campus concerts.  There’s something for every cynic.

For those who’ve had enough of the sun or music written after 1950, there’s the air-conditioned Senior Choice Concert in Roone, put on by the CU Wind Ensemble at 2:00 PM.

On the sun-scorched steps, there’s the acoustic side of Bacchanal’s bagel shebang.  Neal Goldberg of Miss Distress will be playing.

Postcrypt has crawled out of the catacombs into the bright light.  They’ll be in front of EC until 6:00 PM tonight with new acts every half hour, should you tire of a particular strum-and-moan ensemble.  Sweetheart Anthony Da Costa will be wrapping things up at 5:10.

After you grab a quick dinner, head on over to Philosophy Hall for the Music Performance Program’s end of semester concert.  Starting at 8:00 PM, it features undergraduate ensembles playing works by Beethoven, Dvorak, and other lesser-known composers.  No worries if you can’t make it — the second part of the concert will be Monday night at the same time.
