Publicity PhotoCSU, Chico’s Department of Music and Theatre presents its fall semester “thank you” concert, “A Serenade or Two,” Wednesday, November 19 at 7:30 p.m. in Harlen Adams Theatre.

“A Serenade or Two” features the Concert Band and Jazz II ensembles and is free and open to the public.

“The concert is our thank you to our patrons for supporting our music and theatre events during the semester,” said Royce Tevis, Director of Bands at Chico State and coordinator of the concert. “It is also an opportunity for our students to show what they have learned during the semester.”

“We always try to fit in a fun piece — music that the students and audience will recognize and enjoy,” said Tevis. 

Both the Concert Band and the Jazz II ensemble are non-auditioned groups that meet as classes and are open to any CSU, Chico student, regardless of musical experience or ability. For more information on joining these groups call Tevis at 898-5582.
