Join us for a benefit concert on April 26th to fund student research in sustainable agriculture and food systems.

The third annual “Loving of the Land” concert will feature the Madison class-grass quintet Graminy. Class-grass is a musical style that blends bluegrass and classical traditions.

Graminy will be joined by men’s and women’s vocal groups from Madison’s West High School—Chromatic and Ten—directed by Anthony Cao.

The concert will be held in Music Hall at UW-Madison, starting at 8:00pm. Stephanie Elkins, Wisconsin Public Radio, will serve as master of ceremonies.

Tickets cost $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Student tickets are available for $5 in advance and $10 at the door. Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets, through CIAS (262-8018, cecarusi@wisc.edu), and from Agroecology students.

The Loving of the Land concert is one of a series of events in 2014 celebrating the 25th anniversary of CIAS.
