Celebrate Agriculture with a “Class-Grass” Concert!

October 10th, 2012

Hey music lovers!  Here’s an opportunity to experience a unique new spin on classical and bluegrass music with an agricultural flavor!

The CALS Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems is co-sponsoring a pair of concerts on Saturday, October 13th at and Sunday October 20th that celebrate the culture of agriculture.  The first concert will be at 3:30 p.m. in St. Boniface Catholic Church at 105 Church Street in Lime Ridge (near Reedsburg), and admission will be $8 regular and $5 for students at the door.  The second concert will be at Mills Hall on the UW-Madison campus and tickets will be $10 regular and $8 for students at the door.

The concerts will feature the Graminy class-grass quintet.  CALS professor Michael Bell plays the mandolin, joined by Shauncey Ali with the fiddle and viola, Chris Powers with the guitar, Chris Wagoner with the fiddle, and Mary Gaines with the cello.  At these performances, Graminy will debut a new bluegrass piece entitled Germinations: A Bluegrass Symphony in D.
