Music Event to Entertain All & Support Students

Class Acts IV is a musical cabaret featuring UW Faculty & Staff, with proceeds going to the General Scholarship Fund

mozartWINNIPEG, MB – If you like to listen to great music and support a worthy cause, then Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall is the place to be on March 6 at 7:00 pm to see Class Acts IV.

Showcase of the Musical Talents
An event started in 2002 as the brainchild of Marion Tetrault (Education) and first brought to the stage by UWinnipeg’s own impresario Harry Strub, Class Acts IV is a showcase of the hidden musical talents of faculty and staff. And that talent is abundant. Most of the performers are accomplished amateurs, but you will see some accomplished pros as well. All the proceeds from the event will be donated to The University of Winnipeg General Scholarship Fund.

Award-Winning Line-Up
nathanNathan, the Juno award-winning band (which includes Devin Latimer from Chemistry), is on the bill. As well, Glenn Buhr, composer, music professor and one of the founders of the Winnipeg New Music Festival, will play with his partner Margaret Sweatman (English), with whom he won a Genie Award.

Back by popular demand from previous Class Acts are Murray Evans (English), Robb Matheson (Security Services), the Blasphemers (Angela Failler, Sociology/Women’s Studies, and Craig Willis, Biology), Hector Leon Valenzuela (partner of Melodie Doherty, Student Services), Uptown Grass (with Ed Byard, Biology and Don Metz, Education), Neil Besner (with his son Daniel and daughter Barbara), and Paul Friesen (Library), who will also reprise his “tweener” gig.

Don’t miss it. The music will cover the spectrum from Amadeus Mozart through Kathleen Edwards to Bill Monroe. Tickets are $20 (just $10 for students) and are available at the door, or in advance from:

The UWSA Info Booth, 1st Floor Centennial Hall
The Department of Biology, 3rd floor Lockhart (3L00A)– telephone 786-9435
