Stars, Stripes and Sousa!
The UT Arlington Wind Symphony presents an old-fashioned band concert in the tradition of "March King" John Philip Sousa on Sunday afternoon, September 14 at 3pm. Overtures, soloists, and of course, marches! The concert will be presented "on the lawn" in the Architecture Courtyard at the corner of Nedderman Drive and Greek Row Drive. Rain location is next door in Texas Hall. Ample free parking is available. Concert-goers are invited to bring their blankets or lawn chairs but there will also be limited chair seating. Children of all ages are welcome - there will be free lemonade and ice cream for everyone! Free admission.
