Fullerton, CA– California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) will host another installment of â€œConcert Under the Starsâ€ this Saturday, September 17 at the Intramural Fields located near Gymnasium Campus Dr., north of the Titan Gym.
Following the success of last yearâ€™s â€œMotown Sound,â€ this yearâ€™s theme celebrates the history in sound of Dick Clarkâ€™s thirty-seven year TV smash â€œAmerican Bandstandâ€ through a variety of genres of big band, jazz, country, gospel, funk, blues, punk and pop, performed by students and alumni from CSUFâ€™s acclaimed College of the Arts.
As the universityâ€™s annual premiere fundraising fall event, all proceeds go towards student success in raising funds for scholarships. Although donors also attend the show, â€œConcert Under the Starsâ€ is a community outreach event, welcoming all to join. Tickets are free and can be reserved at CSUFâ€™s website, http://www.fullerton.edu/concert/lawn.asp.
Food trucks will be available, and concert-goers are welcome to bring chairs, blankets and picnics for an al fresco â€œunder the starsâ€ dining experience. Sponsors will be treated to a catered dinner and a VIP reception.
General parking for the event will be held at lots A &G located on Yorba Linda Blvd. and west of the Goodwin baseball field.
The concert will start at 7:30 pm but gates will open at 5pm. The show will conclude with a firework finale.
