Music to offer free concerts

Published March 28, 2013

The Department of Music will present a number of free concerts during April, among them the final Brown Bag Concert of the year on April 2.

The concert will take place at noon on the stage of Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall, North Campus.

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.
