Baldwin Wallace University seniors co-produce concert at Music Box for capstone class

Tickets On Sale Now! All Ages!

In partnership with the Music Box, five graduating seniors at Baldwin Wallace University Arts Management Program will be co-producing a disco dance party with special guest DISCO INFERNO. This event will be hosted at Music Box on April 23 starting at 9 p.m.

Every year, assistant head of the department, Dr. Sean Murphy, facilitates this project with a partnering music venue in Cleveland. Students get hands-on experience with booking a band, creating a marketing plan with the goal of selling out the show and producing the concert on-site.

“This project offers a robust, real world experience for our students,” Bryan Bowser, head of the arts management department, speaks on this capstone project. “Students can choose to work with Playhouse Square on producing a show in partnership with the BW Music Theatre program or with a music venue in the greater Cleveland area. Seniors who chose to work with Music Box were responsible for finding and booking a band, marketing the show and producing it on show day,” Sean Murphy adds.

DISCO INFERNO is Sonny D. Lite, Joey “Hollywood”  D. Lite, Bjorn Z. Free and Rocky Bucacci. They are all a cast of professional entertainers from Perfect World Entertainment. DISCO INFERNO was formed in 1995 after Sonny relocated from Southern California to the Cleveland, Ohio area.
