Collage Concert blends the fine arts

The Third Annual Collage Concert, sponsored by the Kansas University School of Fine Arts, will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Lied Center.

The Collage Concert showcases works by KU visual and performing art students and faculty in a fast-paced, non-stop, 90-minute format. The concert brings together the four units of the school: art, design, music and dance.

This year's concert marks the debut of three new directors in the department of music and dance: John Lynch, director of bands; John Paul Johnson, director of choral activities; and Timothy Hankewich, director of orchestras.

Among the performers are the Kansas Brass Quintet, a woodwind duo, Instrumental Collegium Musicum, the combined choirs, Saxophone Quartet I, Percussion Ensemble I, the Men's Glee Club and faculty and members of the University Dance Company.

Representing the visual arts, four videos exploring "Expanded Disciplines in Art and Design" will be shown at intervals during the concert. A collaborative video by art, music and dance faculty also will be shown.

The Marching Jayhawks will provide the finale for the concert.

Tickets, which are $7 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens, are available at the Lied Center Box Office, 864-2787; the Murphy Hall Box Office, 864-3982; and the Student Union Activities Box Office, 864-SHOW.

Proceeds benefit the School of Fine Arts.
