Day of Music

October 6, 2017

One day of music: imagined by students, created by students, performed by students.

This is UNC’s Day of Music!

On October 6, University of Northern Colorado School of Music students will flood the Greeley community with music, booking shows and performing all day, all over town. Students are liberated to dream big, create professional partnerships, and do what they love—play music and share their art with the community.
