Celebration concert closes Centennial events

BOWLING GREEN, O.—Bowling Green State University will close out its centennial year with a concert and program at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 10, in the Lenhart Grand Ballroom of the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.

The “Centennial Celebration Concert” will feature a variety of the University’s musical ensembles, a tribute to a year of service and the filling of a centennial time capsule.

Many of the musical selections have direct connections to BGSU. Ryan Nowlin, an alumnus who was recently been named staff arranger for the U.S. Marine Corps Band, composed or arranged two of the compositions, current faculty members Chris Buzzelli and David Bixler had a hand in two of the musical pieces, and “American Pageant” was composed by Thomas Knox, a friend of Dr. G. Philip Cartwright, husband of BGSU President Carol Cartwright.

Representatives from the Bowling Green and BGSU communities will contribute items for a centennial time capsule that will be displayed rather than buried.

Admission to the event is a food item or monetary donation. All donations will benefit the Bowling Green Food Pantry.
