Search no more. Come out to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Varsity Band Concert at the Delavan-Darien High School Gym (150 Cummings St., Delavan).
The concert starts at 2 p.m. General admission tickets (no assigned seating) are just $10 each for the public, and $5 each for DDHS and Phoenix Middle School students. About 1,200 tickets will be sold.
Worry not. You won’t miss any NFL playoff action if you come out. That’s the weekend of the NFL Pro Bowl, so what else have you go to do?
The concert is in support of the Delavan-Darien High School bands program. It is being sponsored by the DDHS Band Boosters.
Two Delavan-Darien alumni are current UW Varsity Band members — Meghan Smith, class of 2012 (tuba) and Dan Clark, class of 2011 (trumpet). Also, DDHS art teacher Amanda Vogt is a UW Band alumni.
The UW Varsity Band is directed by Michael Leckrone and is known throughout the world for its outstanding performances at UW athletic events and concerts throughout the state and country. The band will be coming in fresh off its third-consecutive appearance at the New Year’s Day Rose Bowl and Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, Ca., courtesy of the UW Badgers winning the Big Ten football championship.
