November 17 – November 21, 2009
U of L Centre for the Arts Main Atrium
Artist: Tiny Bill Cody
“Bring A Song To the Atrium” was activated for three days, from Thursday November 19 through Saturday November 21. The yurt generated music and performance beginning at 11:30am each day and running continuously for four to eight hours each day. Dozens of performers, from novice to professional ensembles participated. The yurt succeeded in bringing informal and intimate music to an otherwise daunting and cavernous student atrium.
