Dennis Warner to give final Summer Session Programs performance
Dennis Warner will perform a free outdoor family show Monday, July 30,
beginning the last week of Summer Session Programs at UW-Eau Claire.
The concert will begin
at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall (rain: Schofield Auditorium). Refreshments
will be sold. Audience members are invited to bring blankets or folding chairs
for lawn seating.
Blending acoustic folk-country music and humor, Dennis Warner
presents upbeat, up-tempo concerts for kids and families that are popular in
well over 100 cities each year — from small village gatherings in Alaska to
huge auditoriums in Florida. His credits include hosting "Jammin’ with
Dennis Warner," a special live radio show broadcast by National Public
Radio affiliates, and featured spots on NPR’s "Great Acoustics
Live!" and "River City Folk." He recently was invited to perform
at the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Warner has been honored three times as a finalist in the
Emerging Songwriters Showcase at the internationally renowned Kerrville Folk
Fest, and he has appeared many times at The Bluebird Cafe, the Nashville club
known for discovering new and exciting songwriters. He recently released his
fifth album, "My World," which features strong lyrics, solid guitar
work, and performances by Prudence Johnson and Peter Ostroushko.
Also on campus during the week of July 30 are these free
Summer Session Programs:
- "Ever After," a 1998 film that The Washington
Post called "a dazzling rendering of the Cinderella story," will
screen Tuesday and Thursday at noon and 7 p.m. in Davies Theatre. Drew Barrymore
stars as a young 16th-century woman who stands up to her scheming stepmother (Anjelica
Huston) and works miracles in the lives of those around her —particularly the
crown prince of France (Dougray Scott). Directed by Andy Tennant, the 100-minute
film is rated PG-13.
- UW-Eau Claire and area musicians will present a jazz
concert from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday on the Central Campus Mall (rain: The
Cabin, Davies Center). A variety of grilled lunch items will be sold.
Funded by UW-Eau Claire student segregated fees, the Summer Session Programs
series is sponsored annually by the Activities and Programs Office.
