Lavay Smith and her brassy nine-piece band will play not in the auditorium but in the expansive circular Gunn Atrium with its panoramic views of the campus.

Come early, stay late! Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and food trucks will be parked outside of Bing. Grab a bite and watch the dancers from seating on our veranda.  If you don't care to dance, come hear the music for free!
