6:30 Concert Series returns March 8 with ‘Sustainable Voices’

UW-Green Bay Music’s 6:30 Concert series returns on March 8, 2021, with Sustainable Voices – A Musical Exploration of Ecological Sustainability. The 6:30 concert series can be viewed LIVE on the Weidner Center’s Youtube Channel.

UW-Green Bay Music faculty and guests present an inclusive program of an array of compositional voices and styles, each of which communicate a powerful, sometimes activist point of view regarding issues relating to the environment. In taking this approach, this program demonstrates that a sustainable future for the performing arts is one that embraces a wide range of musical expression by a full range of artists and produces performances that fully engage with the present moment. The concert will be presented from Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center.
