On Thursday, Sept. 23, 2021, shoppers at a Kroger in Collierville, TN had their lives changed forever when a lone gunman entered the store. Employees and customers alike were attacked, leaving over a dozen wounded physically, many more wounded emotionally, and one woman dead. Olivia King, the mother of University of Findlay’s Director of Bands, King, was that woman. The Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble Concert is a eulogy of her life and a reflection on how she lived. The bands will be under the direction of King.
While most UF concerts are family-friendly, due to the nature of tonight’s thematic material, parents should use caution in attending tonight’s In Memory concert with small children.
Masks are encouraged but not required for audience members attending an event at MCPA.
