The performers will all be masked, and the first three rows will be kept empty to create space between the singers and the audience.

Tickets are $12 for the public; $8 for senior citizens; $6 for students not attending UW; and free to UW students with a “W” number. To purchase tickets, visit the Performing Arts box office, call (307) 766-6666, or go online. The concert also will livestreamed.
