The Appletones are Lawrence University's only co-ed a cappella group. Currently in their second year of existence, they sing mostly popular songs in order to expand access to music for everyone at the University. The group consists of music and non-music majors, and aims to bring the fun of a cappella music to all in Appleton and Door County.
Lawrence University's Björklunden will host another joint concert at 1:30 p.m. May 5.
The Lawrence Saxophone Studio will perform a variety of chamber works and improvisations, including music for saxophone ensemble - featuring the entire family of saxophones - and will be directed by student conductors and Lawrence saxophone faculty.
Also performing is the Lawrence Jazz Guitar Studio, which will be presenting a concert of original material as well as fresh takes on standard repertoire. The concert will demonstrate the incredible diversity of sound inherent in the instrument as well as the guitar's role in disparate genres.
These free concerts are sponsored by the Boynton Society and will be held in Björklunden's Vail Hall. Entrance to the Björklunden lodge is located on Wisconsin 57, south of Baileys Harbor, across from Anschutz Plumbing.
