AUTUMN MUSIC FESTIVAL
AutMus Fest...Finally... Something for Everyone!
An upcoming concert event at Texas A&M International University will offer a musical experience with something for everyoneand kicks off the University’s 35th Anniversary.
AutMus Fest, Texas A&M International University Alumni Association’s Autumn Music Festival, is Oct. 8, 2005, from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
You won’t have to hazard a road trip to San Antonio or points south and there’s no online ticket hassles — just an explosive opportunity to sample some of the great musical sounds of today’s and tomorrow’s artists.
AutMus offers Laredo, South Texas and North- Eastern México a day of diverse live, international musical acts and entertainment. The artist lineup includes musical acts from Houston, Austin, Monterrey, and as far away as New Orleans.
You’ll be able to enjoy musical genres and styles including country-rock, cumbia, funk, fusion, jazz, rock, rock en español, ska, Tejano, and more. To add to the fun atmosphere, you can chow down on turkey legs, corn in the cup, hamburgers, tacos, funnel cakes, gorditas, and much more. Audiences of all ages will enjoy this first-ever opportunity to celebrate culture and music on the grounds of Texas’ newest University.
Artists will perform on two stages on the University’s north courtyard, a perfect backdrop for an international music festival aimed at the public of Laredo, regional college campuses and beyond.
And the best part? Proceeds will help support student scholarships at TAMIU, always a pressing need as students strive to achieve their higher education dreams. The event also serves as a reunion for alums from the former Texas A&I University at Laredo, Laredo State University and Texas A&M International University. The first College reunion will be held October 9, 2005 from 1 - 5 p.m.
AutMus Fest is envisioned as a new all-family tradition for South Texas. Admission to the event will be $10.00 at the gate or $5 presale at participating Popeyes Chicken in Laredo. Children 12 and under go in free, but must be companied by an adult.
