Special Projects - Whenever possible, Sangamon Auditorium includes UIS students in special projects relating to our performances. Some recent events include:
- Sangamon Auditoirum worked with Fifth House Ensemble, a Chicago-based group, to collaborate with students and faculty in areas of environmental studies for a performance called Listen to the River. Music selections performed by Fifth House's wind ensemble were interspersed with scientific presnetations relating to the Illinois River.
- Vocal and instrumental students in UIS Music ensembles had the opportunity to perform on stage alongside members of the US Army Field Band and Chorus.
- Students in UIS Theatre classes attended a workshop with members of The Acting Company when they were here to perform Romeo & Juliet. Students learned about interpreting Shakespeare and performing stage combat.
