St. Norbert College to Host Concert to Benefit Cassandra Voss Center

From St. Norbert College, September 4, 2014
by Erich Wegenke, erich.wegenke@snc.edu, 920-403-3089

On Thursday, Sept. 18, the St. Norbert College campus will host the fourth annual concert in support of the Cassandra Voss Center. The concert will take place at 7 p.m. in the Walter Theatre in the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts. It will feature two musical acts: Andy Davis and the Velvet Horns, a 9-piece soul band, and Street Corner Symphony, a six-man a cappella group.

Tickets for the concert can be purchased by calling the Walter Theatre box office at 403-3950, or online at www.tickets.snc.edu. Ticket prices are $40 for Rows A-U and $25 for Rows V-Z.

The Velvet Horns were born in an impromptu jam session among studio musicians. Their stylistic influences are varied, with musical inspirations from New Orleans to Memphis to Detroit. The Velvet Horns aim to carry the torch of old soul music into modern times.

Street Corner Symphony, also performers at last year's concert, began in Nashville, Tenn., and were launched to fame via the TV show "The Sing-Off" in 2010. Since then, Street Corner Symphony have recorded various albums, provided music clinics for schools, given benefits for cancer and performed across the country and around the world. Like that of The Velvet Horns, Street Corner Symphony's music is inspired by a wide range of genres and styles.

The Cassandra Voss Center at St. Norbert College is home to the Joan P. Schaupp Women's Center, the Men's Initiative and the women's and gender studies discipline. It was established in 2013 in memory of Cassandra J. Voss, and named in her honor. Voss-- who would have been the first St. Norbert College student to complete an individualized major in women's and gender studies -- lost her life in a car accident in 2007.
