Travel the world with music

One way to experience other cultures is through music and dance. Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the Lory Student Center Cherokee Ballroom, students can do just that.

A free International Dance Party, sponsored by the Office of International Programs, LSC grants for diverse groups and COISA, is a free chance to learn about diversity of cultures through dance and music.

The event is free and open to students and the Fort Collins community.

An Earnest fan of theater?

CSU students and Fort Collins residents looking for entertainment full of paradoxical hilarity are in luck.

Thursday at 7:30 p.m. “The Importance of Being Earnest” is opening at the University Center for the Arts University Theatre.

According to a news release, the classic play by Oscar Wilde was first performed in 1895. The preposterous plot follows Algernon and Jack, Cecily and Gwendolen and Lady Bracknell and Miss Prism.

The opening night is followed by a meet the artist reception.

Riley runs the percussion down

A New York City jazz drumming legend is joining Jazz Ensemble I, directed by Peter Sommer, at the Griffin Concert Hall in the University Center for the Arts on Thursday.

At 7:30 p.m. John Riley, who has played with jazz legends Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Getz, will hold a concert full of masterful big band drumming, a news release on the university event calendar said.

“John Riley was our guest in 2007 and I was blown away by his musicianship and teaching,” Sommer said. “After giving one of the greatest clinics on jazz drumming I have ever seen, I am thrilled to have him back.”

Admission is $7 for CSU students, $1 for youth ages 2 to 17 and $12 for adults.
