Alumni Weekend Concert
Janelle Monáe to Headline Alumni Weekend! #GWAW15
Join us on Saturday, September 26, at 9pm, for this year’s Alumni Weekend concert with the inimitable, award-winning, songwriter, performer, producer, CoverGirl and avant-garde funkstress – Janelle Monáe. Monáe's music has garnered her six Grammy Award nominations. She’s been honored as Billboard magazine’s Rising Star of the Year and received the Vanguard Award from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers at the Rhythm & Soul Music Awards.
Recognized for both her critical and commercial acclaim, Monáe performed at the White House in 2014 as part of the PBS-broadcast "Women of Soul" event. Her appearances include the “Today Show," “Saturday Night Live,” “Arsenio Hall Show,” “53rd Annual Grammy Awards,” and “Dancing with the Stars." Known for both her signature clothing style and unexpected collaborations, you won’t want to miss Janelle Monáe’s electric performance at the Smith Center.
Alumni Weekend registration will open the week of July 20.
