Free Concert Thursday Features Vol State Musicians

The Vol State campus will be rocking all afternoon, Thursday, April 19, with a live music show on the Thigpen Library lawn.

The bands scheduled for 2-3:30 p.m., are Jim O’Baid, Ed White, Freezz De BossMann and Danya.

From 5-6:00 p.m., the Vol State Commercial Music Ensemble, ChanceCold and BackHand Karma.

The free event, which is part of the annual Communication Week, is sponsored by the Live Sound class.

“Steve Bishir and the guys in the live sound class devised this gig, and they’re doing the whole thing," said Lynn Peterson, of the music department.

“They’ve been trying to get a live sound class and they finally got it this semester. And in order for that class to really do hands-on, they need projects,” said Peterson.

“This is the first year the live sound class has been offered,” said Bishir, director of recording studio.

“The class is about taking a project from a concept to the performance,” said Bishir.
