Musical Double Feature to Close
Artists Series at UW-Eau Claire

 MAILED:  April 21, 2003

EAU CLAIRE - An evening of food, music and dance will close the Artists Series season Thursday, May 1, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

The double-feature event in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center will begin at 7:30 p.m. with a concert by Calle Sur - a duo comprised of Panamanian drummer-guitarist Edgar East and Colombian singer-flutist Karin Stein. After intermission, the Afro-Cuban salsa band Orquesta Alto Maiz will take the stage. The variety of musical styles, use of the Spanish language, and foods of Latin and South American and the Caribbean will blend to create a celebration that culturally transcends the ordinary Cinco de Mayo event.

Ethnic foods will be available for purchase at the program, which is cosponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
Admission is $15 for the public, $13 for those 62 and older and UW System or Chippewa Valley Technical College faculty and staff, and $5 for those age 17 and younger and UW System or CVTC students. Tickets are available at the University Service Center in Davies Center and will be sold at the door.

Patrons may also charge their tickets to MasterCard or Visa when they order by phone. Call (715) 836-3727 - or, outside the immediate Eau Claire area, call toll-free (800) 949-UWEC. A $3 handling fee will be added to all telephone charge orders.

Funded by the students of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, the Artists Series is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the state of Wisconsin. The program is administered by the Activities and Programs office.
