The College of Arts and Sciences is hosting a free, six-part summer concert series that will bring such hometown groups and musicians as Babik, the Latin Jazz Project and Dee Adams to the North Campus for lunchtime shows.
The “Rock the CASbah: CAS Summer Concert Series” will be held from 12:05-1:05 p.m. from late June through early August outside the Student Union. The rain venue is the ground-floor lobby of Capen Hall.
The goal of the series is to enliven the university during the summer months, says Donald McGuire, undergraduate programs administrator in CAS who is coordinating the college’s summer programs. The series, which is new this year and which officials hope to make an annual event, supports local music while encouraging the community to visit UB.
“We’re trying to make summer a more active time of year,” McGuire says. “We would love to see the public enjoying our campus. And we would like to give the students who are participating in summer courses a fun diversion.”
