MARINETTE — The UW-Marinette is proud to present Native American Music Traditions: Stories About Music in Life Wednesday, at 5 p.m., in the cafeteria of the main building on the UW-Marinette campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Guy Reiter of the Menominee Nation will be joined by Wade Fernandez, an internationally acclaimed recording artist for the Menominee Nation. Fernandez will help Reiter tell of the ways in which music is an integral part of everyday life. The two will be demonstrating some of the music on flute and drum. They will also have many stories to tell which are closely entwined with the music.
The event is being hosted by the campus Inclusion and Diversity Committee. Students in Music Literature and Appreciation will also be in attendance. Questions about the event can be directed to UW-Marinette Music Professor David Giebler at david.giebler@uwc.edu or 715-735-4300, ext. 4316.
