Wosner's performance is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 12, in the Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall on UB's North Campus. Doors open at 7.

Tickets for UB faculty and staff are available for $10 (plus a $2 fee) online at Ticketfly, $14 if purchased in advance at UB's Center for the Arts, or $17 at the door, one hour before concert time.
