Musicians and singers of the University of Wisconsin Marathon County will take to the air musically tonight for their annual fall concert.

The concert, which begins at 7 p.m. in the UW Center for Civic Engagement Theater, 625 Stewart Ave., will feature a wide variety of songs that revolve around the concept of flight. The event will serve as a kickoff for UWMC's month-long Lecture & Fine Arts Learning to Fly series, which will feature dozens of events highlighting the relationship between sciences and the arts.

The musicians will perform everything from "Fly Me to the Moon" to "Flight of the Bumblebee." The university's concert choir, vocal jazz ensemble and Jazz Central Voices, led by director Timothy Buchholz, will perform along with the school's jazz ensemble, directed by Jeff Erickson, and the concert band, under the direction of Chad Premeau.

"From traditional works to more contemporary pieces like 'Blackbird,' by Lennon and McCartney, and 'Defying Gravity,' from the musical 'Wicked,' our music students have had fun preparing for this flight-themed concert," said Buchholz, assistant professor of music at UWMC.

The concert is free.
