Veterans and active service members will be honored at an upcoming concert, that centers on the theme of love, at the University of South Florida.
The Love Concert, which is scheduled for Feb. 3 at 7:30 p.m., will feature the Touch iPad Band, which uses iPads to make music. The band dates back to 2011.
Music at this concert will feature collaborations between Touch and the university’s dance, theater and visual arts to portray stories told by local military veterans, according to David Williams, who is a USF school of music faculty member, as well as a member of Touch.
Other members of Touch are Clint Randles, another USF school of music faculty member, and USF music education students Jonathan Kladder, Jeff Temple and George Pennington.
They will be joined by New York-based singer/songwriter Kat Reinhart; USF alum and Hillsborough County music teacher Nathaniel Strawbridge, students and faculty of USF’s schools of theater and dance; art and art history; and, the singers from the school of music’s A cappella singers, Tones of Gold.
The event will benefit a local organization that helps disadvantaged veterans.
The event will take place at the USF School of Music Concert Hall, 3755 USF Holly Drive.
General admission is $15; students and seniors are $10; and veterans and active members of the military are $5. Tickets are available at the Arts Box Office, (813) 974-2323 and at the door 90 minutes before show time.
