With only three weeks until the March 21 Campus Activities Board-sponsored spring concert, University of South Dakota campus anticipation is growing.
One of those three weeks is spring break, possibly leaving only two viable weeks for the announcement to be made, students to purchase tickets and the medium through which tickets are sold.
With a $90,000 budget, the March concert is one of two CAB will sponsor this spring in Aalfs Auditorium.
In past years, CAB slated musical acts like Owl City, OneRepublic and Mac Miller.
“With the budget we were given from SGA, we decided to use it to get two concerts instead of one because there was enough that we could get two decent acts,” CAB president Darcy Leischner said.
Leischner declined to comment on how the $90,000 budget would be split between the two concerts, but said, “the contract is currently with the artist.”
“For concerts you have to worry about hiring a production company and making sure that the artist gets everything that they want, so it’s a lot more work,” Leischner said.
The only detail released about the second CAB-sponsored spring concert Apr. 24 is confirmation of a signed contract.
“We’re just working on the March 21 concert right now,” said Leischner.
