As we draw closer to that first Saturday in May and the annual WSMA Solo Ensemble day, when thousands of young musicians and their families flock to campus for the students to be judged as individual and/or group performers, the Phoenix Bookstore is planning something creative. They’re asking UW-Green Bay faculty and staff members to polish up those old WSMA (or other) Solo Ensemble medals and bring them to the bookstore, where they will be proudly assembled for prominent display. They’re also looking for people to bring in photos of their old high school band/choir/orchestra days. “Our guests for the day will be suitably impressed with your musical accomplishments, and entertained by your geeked-out photos.”
• Public Safety has notified members of the campus community that UW-Green Bay will participate in the Statewide Tornado Drill at 1:45 p.m. Thursday, April 16. Individuals will be expected to temporarily evacuate to an interior room or hallway, and on the lowest level if it is safe to do so, and stay away from windows, glass, and large open areas. If you have not signed up for GB Alert, the emergency text messaging system that again will be tested during the drill, you can sign up on the Public Safety website.
