Thursday, May 10 marked the first concert of many in the Connors State College Black Sunset Concert Series. Over 1500 people came to the Warner Campus to listen to live music by Stoney LaRue and special guests, The Band of Heathens. The bands started to set up and do sound checks around 2:00 pm to get ready for the 7 pm start time, but it took lots of collaboration between all the CSC and city departments to make this event successful. Over 100 volunteers from the college and the city showed up to help with the show. The National Guard brought over 400 t-shirts to throw out to the crowd and Connor the Cowboy was on hand to meet and greet crowd members. People drove from all around the area to listen to the free concert. College students, high school students, and families all enjoyed the show. Connors State College hopes to continue growing their concert series and offering a family-friendly and fun environment for people to enjoy time and time again. Special thanks to all who made this event possible and for all the volunteers who gave their time to make this a successful evening for Connors State College.
