Outdoor music, fun on tap for fifth annual 'DePauwpalooza' Friday

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

The DePauw University School of Music will present one of its favorite events of the fall season, "DePauwpalooza," this Friday, Sept. 18, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The entire DePauw community is invited to join in the outdoor celebration in Bowman Park.

The event features not only free music but complimentary pizza and even a drum circle led by Eric Edberg.

DePauwpalooza is held with the assistance of DePauw Student Government.

Six acts will be presented, with the University Band warming up the audience with Richard Saucedo's "Wind Sprints," a whirlwind of sound followed by the DePauw Chamber Singers, the cast from the department of theater and communication's upcoming production of "Spamalot," the University Chorus and the Jazz Ensemble.

As a prelude to its first fall concert, at 3 p.m. this Sunday in Kresge Auditorium, the DePauw University Orchestra will close out the set with three pieces, including music by renowned film composer John Williams.

No tickets are required for the event. The fun continues until 7 p.m.

In the event of rain, the show will go on inside the Green Center for Performing Arts with plenty of games, music and free pizza for everyone. All are welcome to attend.
