UWP Haiti relief concert to be held in the Nohr Gallery on March 24

PLATTEVILLE - The University of Wisconsin-Platteville will be holding a Haiti relief concert on Wednesday March 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the Harry and Laura Nohr Art Gallery located in Ullsvik Hall on the UWP campus. The concert will cost $2 for UWP students with a current ID and $5 for faculty and the general public.

The concert will consist of Caribbean music by the UWP Panjammers steel drum band and original world jazz by Neck N Neck. The UWP Panjammmers steel drum band is a band created in a class at UWP and Neck N Neck is Joe Caploe's professional ensemble touring in support of their new CD "All In."

Caploe, UWP associate music professor, said, "The reason people should attend is to support the ongoing efforts in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake and to enjoy great live music in a style that is rarely presented at UWP."
