It is getting crowded with concerts and music events as the spring semester winds down to a close. The University of Wisconsin -Madison School of Music has something just about every day this coming week, and some days more than one event.

But the same is true for other institutions that often exist in the shadow of the UW.

So get out and check your datebook to make some plans.

The Ear has received the following word from Edgewood College (below) about two concerts with multiple performing groups coming up next weekend.

Sorry to say, though, I have no details about the programs or the performers and conductors.

Here is a somewhat edited version of the Press Release:

“Shake off the last of a winter many of us would like to forget, and celebrate spring with these two concerts!”

On Friday, May 3, the Edgewood College Music Department will present the Guitar Ensemble, Concert Band (below, in a poster for another concert) and the Jazz Ensemble in concert. The performance on Friday evening begins at 7 p.m.

Then, on Sunday, May 5, the college will host a concert by the Chamber Singers (below), Men’s Choir, Women’s Choir and Campus-Community Choir. The performance on Sunday begins at 2:30 p.m.

Both concerts will be held in St. Joseph Chapel, 1000 Edgewood College Drive.

Admission is $7 and will go to support music scholarships for Edgewood College students.

This event is presented as part of the Year of the Arts at Edgewood College, a celebration of music, theatre and art for 2012-2013. Supporters of our Year of the Arts programming include the Kohler Foundation, BMO Harris Bank, the Madison Arts Commission, with additional funds from the Wisconsin Arts Board, DANE Arts with additional funds from the Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation, Native Capital Investment, and the Ahrens-Washburn Community Fellows Program.
