It all starts with a cheer at this year’s spring concert

Programming Board announced that Frankie Ballard and LOCASH will be the spring concert at the F.M. Kirby Center, March 19 at 7 p.m. Tickets are now on sale in the first floor of the SUB. The student ticket price is $10 and the public price is $30.

Students can buy as many tickets as they want; however, they can only receive the student price on two tickets. After that, they will pay the public price.

Jenna Graziano, major event chair for programming board, said that planning an event such as this is no easy task.

“Once an artist confirms, building the actual show consists of figuring out their production, shopping for the artist’s hospitality needs and making sure ticket sales run as smooth as possible for the students,” Graziano said.

Frankie Ballard is an American country music singer-songwriter and guitarist. He has well-known songs such as Sunshine and Whiskey, and It All Started With a Beer.

One student has seen Ballard in concert before and is excited to see him again.

Lorin Paugh said, “He put on a really good show, and my favorite song ever is Sunshine and Whiskey. I’m so excited for a good show.”

Graziano said that she is excited to see both Ballard and LOCASH to perform especially because it is the first time having a country concert for the big show at the Kirby Center.

If anyone is interested in joining Programming Board, the club meets every Thursday at 11:30 a.m. At noon, Jenna Graziano will hold concert committee meetings. Anyone who is an active member of Programming Board can be involved in the concert committee.

The concert is open to the public and is encouraged to attend.
