EAU CLAIRE — A free outdoor show by Eggplant Heroes July 18 will highlight the sixth week of the Summer Events series at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

The concert will begin at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall (rain site: The Cabin of Davies Center). Audience members are invited to bring lawn chairs, blankets and a picnic, and enjoy free popcorn.

Eggplant Heroes is a musical collaboration by members Duffy Duyfhuizen (Jones Tones), Joel Pace (Irie Sol), Olaf Lind (Coolhand Saints, Eau Claire Chamber Orchestra) and poet-songwriter Max Garland. Blending three-part harmonies with guitar, trumpet and violin, the group presents an eclectic mix of originals, adaptations, gospel and folk ranging from 17th-century English and Irish ballads to the Old Crow Medicine Show.

The Summer Sounds series of light classical concerts concludes July 24 with a recital by Dr. Christa Garvey, oboist and UW-Eau Claire associate professor of music, and harpist Paula Smith, lecturer of music. Presented in cooperation with the music and theatre arts department, the performance will begin at 2 p.m. in Phillips Recital Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.

All events are free and open to the Chippewa Valley Community. A complete schedule is available online or at the Service Center, 715-836-INFO. The Summer Events program is funded by the students of UW-Eau Claire and coordinated by the Activities, Involvement and Leadership office of the University Centers.
