A Cal U summer tradition continues Aug. 22 when the University marching band holds its end-of-camp concert on the campus Quad at 3 p.m.
The band will preview its 2019 field show, “California Dreamin,” which features songs associated with sleep — “California Dreamin,” “Mr. Sandman,” “Enter Sandman,” “Livin on a Prayer,” “I Dreamed a Dream,” and “Sweet Dreams.”
The rain location is Steele Hall.
“The end-of-camp concert is a wonderful tradition where the students are able to showcase a performance of the music they learned during their week of camp,” said Dr. Frank Stetar, director of University Bands and co-chair of the Department of Music and Theatre.
“It is always wonderful to see the support of their parents as well as faculty, staff, and administration at the concert. It will surely pique the audience interest as to what they can expect to see on the field during the 2019 football season.”
The musicians perform at all Vulcans football games at Adamson Stadium.
The busy season for the band will also include games at Edinboro (noon Sept. 28); the Coal Bowl at IUP (2 p.m. Oct. 5); at Slippery Rock (1 p.m. Nov. 2); high school band festivals at West Mifflin High School (Sept. 21) and California High School (Sept. 28); the Collegiate Band Festival in Allentown, Pa. (Sept. 29); the Cal U Homecoming parade (Oct. 12); and the California Borough Halloween parade (Oct. 30).
