Among the most heartfelt events in the October lineup of WSU College of Fine Arts' offerings is the world premiere of "Waltzing in Heaven," an uplifting musical tribute to the 1970 WSU football team, many of whose members and supporters died in a plane crash that year. The Opera and Musical Theatre production's opening night will be attended by about 100 of the surviving players, parents, coaches and supporters.

The Marcussen organ will be showcased in two "Wednesdays at Wiedemann" recitals with distinguished professor Lynne Davis, and by David Heller in the Rie Bloomfield Organ Series. The Faculty Artist Series will feature mezzo-soprano Deborah Baxter and cellist Jakub Omsky.

Also on tap are the Symphonic Wind Ensemble; Concert Band and Jazz Arts II; Chamber Singers and Madrigal Singers; A Cappella Choir and Women's Ensemble; and the Symphony Orchestra. And the Ulrich Museum of Art will celebrate the installation of a new outdoor sculpture by world-class artist and Wichita native Tom Otterness.
