ASU to Host Revamped FAME Program

March 23, 2012

Angelo State University’s Friends of Art and Music Education (FAME) will host its 15th annual fundraising event, complete with a brand new “Collage Reception” format, on Thursday, March 29, in the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building, 2602 Dena Drive.

FAME’s Collage Reception will begin at 7 p.m. and will feature student art exhibits and a variety of musical entertainment throughout the EFA Building’s spine.  Admission will be $5 per person and donations will also be accepted, with all proceeds going into FAME’s scholarship fund to benefit ASU fine arts students. 

In addition to viewing art exhibits, attendees will also be able to watch student artists as they work on ceramic pot throwing, printmaking, painting and Japanese raku pottery. ASU’s Brass Choir, Jazz Combo, Flute Choir, Percussion Ensemble, Woodwind Quintet, Chamber Singers and Vocal Ensemble will perform throughout the evening.  Theatre students will also perform several dramatic scenes. 

Several soloists will perform, including percussionist Dr. Daniel McCloud, ASU director of bands, as well as students Bryan Simmons on clarinet; Chloe Fann on French horn; and David Engleman and James Cocuzzi on piano. 

The FAME Collage Reception replaces the previous fundraiser format of a showcase concert and celebrity plate auction.  It remains FAME’s primary fundraising effort of the year. 

Over the past 14 years, FAME has provided 275 ASU art and music students with more than $160,000 in scholarships.  Starting this year, theatre students will also be eligible for the scholarships.
