Soirée Musicale – a benefit for UWSP student scholarships

Cathy and I had the pleasure of attending  the fifteenth annual Soirée Musicale, an event supporting student scholarships in the Department of Music, at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. We have had the honor of participating on the planning committee during the past three years.

Soirée is an evening of food and exceptional entertainment provided by UWSP faculty, students and alumni. The department itself is composed of exceptional faculty who are dedicated to teaching the art and craft of music. One example of their dedication is the universal participation by faculty in this event, either as performers or as a supportive member of the audience.  Their efforts are increasingly attracting top musical talent to UWSP.
