Willimantic, Conn. – Eastern Connecticut State University’s Performing Arts Department will hold a Brown Bag Concert on Oct.11 at noon in the Shafer Hall Auditorium. The public is invited. Admission is free. Shafer Hall is located at Valley and High Streets in Willimantic.
The Brown Bag Concert series is an opportunity for students who are studying applied music to demonstrate their skills on a regular basis in a relaxed environment. This opportunity is outside the normal setting of large concerts that occur regularly on campus, and serves as a way for individuals to perform solo material.
The concerts are an hour in length and are held on the second Friday of every month. They are performed in a friendly, inviting setting, and the audience is encouraged to bring lunch and enjoy the music.
This is the first of the Brown Bag Concert series for the fall 2013 semester.
