Tuohy to appear at UMM in recital hall Sept. 28 Update


A convocation featuring Leigh Anne Tuohy, which was postponed this spring, has been rescheduled for Friday, Sept. 28, in the University of Minnesota recital hall. Dubbed a "warrior princess" by author Michael Lewis in his best-selling book The Blind Side, Tuohy is the inspirational matriarch of the now world-famous family.

Campus events also include the annual performing arts series.

A'cappella vocal ensemble Nobuntu will open the 2018—19 University of Minnesota Morris Performing Arts Series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, in Edson Auditorium, Student Center.

Made up of young women from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, Nobuntu celebrates through song and dance the identities of African women. Their voices and energy and their breathtaking performances combine for an experience that communicates with the human side of anyone.

Interested audiences can look forward to seeing The Griffin Theatre's "Letters Home," Tami Lee Hughes' "The Legacy Show," and Polynesian Paradise Dancers later in the season. Visit to learn more..

Tickets for the performing arts series are available for purchase online, by phone and mail, or in person at the Office of Student Activities. Visit or call 320-589-6077 today.

This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Crane Group.
