Today we remember the attacks of Pearl Harbor! As you walk through campus you'll notice the American flags lining the road and the posters acknowledging the attacks that December morning. Please take a moment to remember the lives lost 76 years ago including the 2,008 U.S. Sailors, 218 U.S. Army, 109 U.S. Marines, and 69 civilians.

Grégoire Maret: The Gospel According to Grégoire Maret

January 19, 2018, 7:30pm - January 19, 2018, 11:30pm

Over the course of the past decade Grégoire Maret has emerged as a unique and compelling new voice across a wide spectrum of the music world. The extensive list of heavy-hitters who have enlisted him for their projects is unparalleled: Harbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Elton John, Sting and Prince. Herbie Hancock has called Maret "one of the most creative musicians around." This show is influenced by Maret's highly successful The Gospel According to Grégoire Maret, and in addition to his virtuoso harmonica playing includes enthralling gospel vocals. To order tickets call 503-838-8333.
