LAFAYETTE—The UL Lafayette Homecoming concert will take place on Friday Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Angelle Hall Auditorium on campus. The concert will be performed by the University Wind Ensemble and the Jazz Ensemble.

The 2009 Homecoming Theme is “The Spice Is Right” so this year the tasty musical offerings include “Sasparilla,” “Gumbo Street,” “Cajun Cooking” and even a piece called “Cayenne.”

This 90-minute concert begins with several traditional numbers by the University Wind Ensemble, UL-Lafayette’s select 52-piece symphonic band, culminating with John Mackey’s “Sasparilla,” (Think Bugs Bunny having one too many in NOLA, then taking a ride through Lafayette, into Texas, and down to Old Mexico—a real intoxicating musical ride.) Then the Jazz Ensemble, UL’s 19-piece Big Band, closes out the show with three hot, spicy and swinging numbers.
