You can hear beautiful music for free this week at a concer put on by the University of Wisconsin-Superior music department. 

The concert is Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Superior and there will be a range of music performed. 

"We're going to have a variety of different kinds of ensembles performing and the space is a beautiful acoustic space to hear the kind of music we're going to be performing," Greg Kehl Moore, the professor of jazz ensembles and saxophone, said.  "We're going to have choral groups, instrumental groups, different faculty members will be participating, different students, such as Sawyer, so it's going to a nice variety."

Sawyer Jones, a music major at UW-S, said he's performing in two groups for the concert.  One is a duet with his professor. 

Jones said they prepare with a lot of practice.

"We've done lots of preparing of that style over the year, so there's a lot of practicing in the bank that goes into it," Moore said. 

They're putting on the free concert for the Board of Regents visiting from the University of Wisconsin.  Moore said they haven't all been on campus since 2012.

"We thought it'd be appropriate to reach out to the community and to include them in this event," Moore said.

"I'm really excited to just show the Twin Ports area, as well as the Board of Regents from around Wisconsin just what we have in Superior," Jones said. 

The free concert is Thursday, October 10th at 6 p.m.  It's being held at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Superior.
