The 58-member band is conducted by Baylor's associate director of bands Jeffrey Grogan.
Baylor's A Cappella Choir will present the final concert in the series on Nov. 2. The A Cappella Choir, conducted by Dr. Donald Bailey, director of choral activities, has performed for state and national conventions, including the Baptist General Convention of Texas and the American Choral Directors Association.
Showcase Series tickets are priced at $5 and will be available at the door only, with no advance sales. Also available at the door only will be The Showcase Card--valid for all three concerts, designated preferred-seating locations and admission to post-concert receptions with the artists.
