Outdoor Music & Fun at Fifth Annual 'DePauwpalooza' Friday

September 16, 2015

LGL 3040The DePauw University School of Music presents one of the favorite events of the fall season, DePauwpalooza, this Friday, September 18, at 5:30 p.m. It features not only free music but complimentary pizza. At the School of Music, September is synonymous with DePauwpalooza.  Held with the assistance of DePauw Student Government, the entire DePauw community is invited to join in the outdoor celebration in Bowman Park.

Six acts will be presented, with the University Band warming up the audience with Richard Saucedo’s “Wind Sprints,” a whirlwind of sound followed by the DePauw Chamber Singers, the cast from the department of theatre and communication's upcoming production of Spamalot, the University Chorus, and the Jazz Ensemble. As a prelude to its first fall concert, at 3 p.m. this Sunday (9/20) in Kresge Auditorium, the DePauw University Orchestra will close out the set with three pieces, including music by renowned film composer John Williams.LGL 3101

No tickets are required for this fall festival; this is a BYOB (Bring Your Own Bassoon) style event, complete with a drum circle lead by Eric Edberg. The fun continues until 7 p.m. In the event of rain, the show will go on inside the Green Center, with plenty of games, good music and free pizza for everyone. All are welcome to attend.
