You heard right – the Grammy award-winning band Earth Wind & Fire will kick-off Alumni Weekend 2012 festivities with an all-alumni concert at the Charles E. Smith Center on Friday, Sept. 28, at 8 p.m.
The iconic American soul-funk-fusion powerhouse’s music is steeped in jazz and R&B, and according to Rolling Stone, changed the sound of pop music in the 1970s with their Latin-funk rhythms, gospel harmonies and unerring horns.
The concert and kickoff party, which includes food and beverages, are included with your Alumni Weekend registration. So mark your calendars for the concert and the other 60+ events taking place during Alumni Weekend, Sept. 27-30, 2012.
Tickets and registration will be available beginning July 25. Keep checking alumni.gwu.edu/aw for updates and announcements.
