Join the Unionaires for the annual Concert at the Capitol on Friday, May 11 at 4:30



The Unionaires performing in 2006.

The Union College Unionaires and Octet invite the public to a free
concert at the Nebraska state capitol building. The concert, from
4:30-5:30 on Friday, May 11, will feature acapella versions of the
repetoire the vocal groups have prepared over the last year.

"The state capitol is a beautiful space with beautiful acoustics," said
Dr. Dan Lynn, professor of music. "Singing in a place like that is as
much a reward for the singers as the audience and the concert serves as
a final thank-you before graduation." The annual concert has become a
tradition, with state officials, legislators and the public being
invited to share in the accomplishments of the Unionaires for over 15
years.

The state capitol, the tallest building in Lincoln, lies between 14th
and 16th streets and K and H streets downtown. Parking is readily
available.
