The Caine College of the Arts is hosting an outdoor concert series for Utah State University students, faculty and staff every Wednesday at 7 p.m. on the Engineering Quad on the Logan campus. The series started September 2 and continues through November 11.
“We started the Midweek Music Series as a gift to the students of Utah State University,” Cindy Dewey, head of the Department of Music, said. “COVID-19 has already changed so much of their college experience that we as a department wanted to offer them some normalcy. Going to outdoor concerts is a sort of thing that students might have done before the pandemic.”
Dewey is happy to provide the university community an opportunity to come together safely in a semester riddled with uncertainty and to entertain and uplift with live music.
The concerts hosted in the tent span a range of genres, including jazz, classical and musical theatre. Performers are students, faculty members and sometimes a guest artist or two.
Upcoming performances include Jazz Jams, September 30; Aggie Music Project Goes Piano-less, October 7; Music Theater Cabaret, October 14; Jazz Combos, October 21; Jazz Jams, October 28; USU Chamber Singers, November 4; and Jazz Jams, November 11.
“Now that we have started the series, we plan to continue it in future years during the months that Utah weather permits,” Dewey said.
Midweek Music Series Concerts are free and open to the campus community. Please bring your own seating and gather around the white tent on the LE Quad. Social distancing is required. The concerts are also broadcast on ccapresents.usu.edu. For more information, go online to cca.usu.edu.
