Music offers free concerts

Published February 28, 2013

The Department of Music will present a number of free concerts during March, starting with a performance by the Genkin Philharmonic at the monthly Brown Bag Concert on March 5.

The Genkin, UB’s electro-acoustic chamber ensemble, will perform at noon on the stage of Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall, North Campus. The ensemble performs contemporary music from the rock, jazz, improvised and classical genres.

Now in its 14th year, the Brown Bag Concert Series is designed to showcase the talents of UB music students and faculty. The series of free, informal concerts presented over the lunch hour allows patrons to catch a glimpse of the kind of programming offered on a regular basis by the Department of Music. Participants are invited to bring their lunch and each attendee will receive a pair of complimentary tickets for a more formal concert within the following month.
