Panorama Preparing for Switchfoot & Anberlin SWOSU Concert


Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s Panorama Committee has planned a major outdoor concert for Thursday, October 4, on the Weatherford campus.

Bands Switchfoot and Anberlin, both popular bands among college/high school students and young adults, will be featured at the 7:30 p.m. concert at Milam Stadium on the SWOSU campus.

Committee member Kevin Bartel, who is director of the SWOSU Fine Arts Center/Conference Center, has been working with a professional production company to provide stage, lighting and video components equal to events that occur at major concert venues.

“We are working to make this a special night for everyone,” Bartel said. “The Panorama Committee wanted to provide a quality setting for this event.”

Ticket sales have been going very good, according to SWOSU Panorama Committee Chair Brian Adler. Advance tickets are $20 for SWOSU students and $25 for non-SWOSU students. Advance tickets for groups of 15 or more are $20. All tickets at the door will be $30.

Tickets are available at the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office, Room 205 of the Administration Building, and at the SWOSU Business Office, Room 109 of the Administration Building, both on the Weatherford campus. Tickets are also available on the SWOSU campus at Sayre in the Business Office. Tickets can also be purchased with a credit card by calling 580.774.3019.

Switchfoot of San Diego, Calif., is an alternative rock band known for its energetic live shows that bring together secular and Christian rock audiences. The band’s name, a surfing term, reflects its members’ dedication to taking a new stance within the rock music community. Switchfoot’s recent album Oh! Gravity has earned widespread critical acclaim.

Anberlin of Winter Haven, Fla., is currently touring in England to sold-out audiences. The rock/alternative band has had a green light in their career since starting in the summer of 2002. Anberlin is very busy with concerts scheduled continuously across the United States and elsewhere.
