ARTS: In Tune
Each week, dozens of third- and fourth-graders pour into the basement of
the Education Building with cello, viola and violin cases in tow. They
gather in groups of 15 to 20 on a colorful carpet and learn to make
music one step at a time. At first it’s noisy chaos, but note by note,
as the weeks progress, the students gain mastery of their instruments.
A Season of Events
The University of Wyoming Conference Center
Laramie has many things a typical small town doesn’t—an art museum, world-class performing arts, a thriving dining and nightlife scene, Division 1 college sports … and a premier conference center.
The University of Wyoming Conference Center, located at the Hilton Garden Inn, with easy access to the new Gateway Center, the Arena-Auditorium and War Memorial Stadium, features 12 conference rooms and more than 13,000 square feet of elegant, flexible venue space complete with state-of-the-art audiovisual technology provided by PSAV—the only venue in the state to offer this technology.
From weddings to business or academic conferences, the UW Conference Center provides a venue where attendees can stay, meet and dine.
