New Concert Announcement! University of Wisconsin Varsity Band
Monday, October 28th, 2013
The Eau Claire Regional Arts Council, Inc. is proud to announce the University of Wisconsin Varsity Band will be performing at the State Theatre on February 16 at 1pm. Tickets will be available to members of the Eau Claire Regional Arts Council Inc. starting October 30 at 10am and will go on sale to the general public November 1 at 10am.
Wherever the appearances may be, the band receives widespread acclaim for its innovative shows, precise marching and playing style, and intense energy. The spirit of this famous unit is one of the keystones of the band’s success, and the band’s enthusiasm could be considered the embodiment of “school spirit” in Wisconsin.
The UW Varsity Band was the subject of a prize-winning television feature produced by WHA-TV, was featured on television's PM Magazine and was proclaimed by special legislative citation to be "The Pride of Wisconsin." Band members were subjects of feature articles in Wisconsin Trails Magazine, The Wisconsin Athlete, Madison Revue, Exclusively Yours Magazine, and the German magazine Der Spiegel. During the centennial celebration year in 1985-86 the band was again cited by the State Legislature, commended by members of the U.S. Senate and congratulated in a special letter from President Ronald Reagan. In 1990 the band won special recognition by the Washington Post and was the subject of a detailed two-page feature. More recently, Playboy Magazine cited them as the number one band in the nation.
Tickets will be available to members of the Eau Claire Regional Arts Council Inc. starting October 30 at 10am and will go on sale to the general public November 1 at 10am.
Tickets can be ordered by phone at 715-832-2787, online at www.eauclairearts.com, or at The Eau Claire Regional Arts Center Box Office at 316 Eau Claire St. Office hours are 9am to 4:30pm weekdays and until 7pm on Thursdays.
