School of Music Alumni Reunion!

A special School of Music Alumni Reunion coincides with the Hamel Music Center Opening Celebration Weekend on October 25-27. Reunion events, including receptions, brunch and an alumni orchestra reading session on Saturday will complement the opening weekend concerts presented in the new performance halls.  Emeritus Professor James Smith will return to conduct an alumni orchestra.

Watch for an email later in August with more details or send an email request for information to Mike George at mggeorge@uwalumni.com.

It has been nine years since an Alumni Reunion was held.  But even more significant is the fact that it has been fifty years since new music performance spaces were opened on the UW-Madison campus.  A tentative schedule for the weekend is available online at http://uwsomaa.org/   You don’t want to miss it!
