Events for Sunday, Oct 29, 2017
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

Serving both the university community and the entire Gulf Coast region through profound artistic and academic achievement, the Department of Music Musical Arts Concert Series features faculty recitals and student ensemble performances worthy of inclusion on anyone's "not-to-be-missed" list of events. Regular Musical Arts Series attendees have been treated since 2001 to an average of 35 concerts per season, and this season will be no exception! Student ensemble programs range from regular concerts by the Wind Ensemble, Symphony Band, University Chorale, Opera & Musical Theatre, Percussion Ensemble, Concert Choir, USA Symphony Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, Flute Choir, various World Music Ensembles, Brass Ensembles, and Piano Ensembles, while the performing faculty normally is represented in half of the concerts in the form of terrific solo and chamber ensemble recitals.
Scheduled in USA's Laidlaw Performing Arts Center 240-seat Recital Hall, concerts generally begin at 7:30 p.m. for evening performances and at 3:00 p.m. for scheduled Sunday events. Tickets for admission to all MAS concerts and other ticketed events are normally sold at the door only (except where indicated) and the hall is open to our patrons approximately 45 minutes in advance of each presentation. Except where indicated, tickets are $8 each for general admission and $5 for USA faculty & staff, USA students, youths under 18 and all senior citizens. (Presently we accept cash or checks only.)
