EAU CLAIRE — Dennis Warner will
perform a free outdoor family show Monday, July 30, beginning the last week of
Summer Session Programs at the University of Wisconsin-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 was recently 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
