Celebrate the lasting legacy of
Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton and Risa Zwerling Wrighton!
An afternoon of live music from St. Louis favorites Steve Ewing and Brian Owens, performances from Washington University student groups as well as fun games and free food from St. Louis’ best food trucks and Ted Drewes.
The party runs from 3 to 6 p.m. April 8 on Mudd Field. Rain location is the Athletic Complex.
Praised by Rolling Stone magazine as a “vibrant soul singer” who “bridges a racial and generational divide,” Ferguson native Brian Owens recently released “Soul of Cash,” a re-imagining of Johnny Cash classics “Ring of Fire” and “Cry, Cry, Cry” along with “Folson Prison Blues,” “Walk the Line,” and “Sunday Morning Coming Down.”
Known for his high-energy live shows, Steve Ewing has been playing his brand of funk, punk and ska for three decades. Ewing broke onto the local music scene 30 years ago as frontman for the Urge, which still sells out its annual Thanksgiving show. Fan favorites include “It’s Gettin’ Hectic” and “Jump Right In.”
