More than 200 people — French students and teachers from across Wisconsin — will be visiting campus to enjoy the annual UW-Green Bay French Day on Thursday (April 18). Prof. E. Nicole Meyer describes it as an exciting day for the University’s academic program in French and campus and community Francophiles. Be sure to say “bonjour” if you encounter any visitors — you’ll know them by their French Day t-shirts. While part of their day’s events includes a French concert just for them, the French Club has graciously arranged two evening concerts (see item below) for the rest of campus and the community. The evening concerts will celebrate Victoria Vox’s most recent album release and, of course, feature a few French songs as well. Any questions, contact E. Nicole Meyer, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Victoria Vox, in concert
A Green Bay native with a national following and strong campus ties will present a pair of concerts on campus — at 7 p.m. both Wednesday and Thursday (April 17 and 18) — as part of French Week activities at UW-Green Bay. Victoria Vox is known for eclectic music, for being a ukulele virtuoso, and for her wonderful interpretation of French songs. Tickets are $2 for UWGB students and $5 for others at the door at the Christie Theatre. If you’d like to reserve tickets (we’re told she’s quite popular) drop an email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about availability. The shows are hosted by the Cercle Français student organization.
