EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Blugold Marching Band, directed by Dr. Randal Dickerson, associate professor of music, will perform its second annual stage show at 4 p.m. Nov. 2 in Zorn Arena.

The public is invited to the show, which will consist of three parts: "Greatest Songs of the Rock Era and BMB Traditions," "Homage to the Alma Mater and Blugold Athletics" and "In Honor of America."

The first section will feature rock music that the BMB played at UW-Eau Claire football games this year, plus other songs that may be familiar to Blugold fans. The second section will highlight the BMB's role at football games and in support of Blugold athletics. It will include much of the BMB's stands music and a special recognition of the student athletes and coaches. The third section will include several patriotic selections.

"Until last year the BMB was unfamiliar with stage shows," said Dickerson."We did our first stage show last year in Zorn and then played several stage shows in Europe last January. The band learned how much fun stage shows can be, so they are looking forward to this one."

General admission tickets are $5 at the door or $3 for group tickets arranged in advance. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the University Service Center, 715-836-3727 or 800-949-UWEC, in the East lobby of Davies Center. Tickets also are available in the main lobby of Haas Fine Arts Center. That ticket outlet is open from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is closed during holidays and academic breaks.
