LAWRENCE — The University of Kansas School of Music ushers in the new school year with the 14th annual Collage Concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, at the Lied Center of Kansas. 

The Collage Concert is an opportunity for the community to experience KU's vibrant music culture through performances featuring the world-class talents of School of Music students and faculty. This year’s concert features the KU Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Singers, Percussion Group, Jazz Ensemble I, Wind Ensemble, as well as performances by student soloists. The event always concludes with a performance by the Marching Jayhawks. The School of Music also will host the presentation of the KU Alumni Association’s Mildred “Millie” Clodfelter Alumni Award to KU Camerata Chairs David and Gunda Hiebert.

“There is no better way to see all that the KU School of Music has to offer. The Collage Concert is a Jayhawk tradition that celebrates a new academic year by sharing our music in multiple forms in one performance. It is a rare and wonderful evening for our faculty, staff and students that we look forward to every year,” said Dean Robert Walzel.

All proceeds from the Collage Concert benefit the Student Opportunity Fund, a resource providing essential financial support for School of Music students participating in competitions, presentations and conferences throughout the country and beyond. Additionally, a special fundraiser for the School of Music Student Opportunity Fund will take place in the Pavilion at the Lied Center prior to the evening’s performance. Tickets to this event are $85 per person and includes entry to the concert. For questions or event registration, please contact Kylie Smith at 785-864-4104 or by email.

Admission is free to KU students with a valid ID, $16 for adults and $11 for seniors and children.

KU ODYSSEY team digs for clues to ancient Pleistocene people Searching for evidence of early people living on the plains in the late Pleistocene age, (see http://bit.ly/1li6uYX) Rolfe Mandel, a KU distinguished professor of anthropology, led an excavation in July 2014 in the “Coffey Site” along the Big Blue River bank in Pottawatomie County, Kansas. Mandel says artifacts from Pleistocene period sediments could provide more clues about the Clovis and pre-Clovis people, who were the founding inhabitants of the Americas.
