Concert History: A Tradition in the Making

In celebration of ending another successful school year and welcoming our seniors into our alumni community, University Development Events partners with the BenU Alumni Association to co-host BenBash, a concert that has now become a springtime tradition for our students, alumni and the surrounding community. In 2012, we featured the synth-pop band, Cobra Starship, and in 2013, we were thrilled to bring the winner of American Idol's season 11, Phillip Phillips, to the newly renovated Dan and Ada Rice Center arena to showcase his noteworthy talent.

This spring event works in tandem with BenFest, our fall concert series where we celebrate the beginning of a new academic year and welcome in our incoming freshman to their first year on campus. Taking place the first weekend of the school year, BenFest provides our new and returning students with an inviting atmosphere where the true Benedictine value of community is highlighted. BenFest 2013 featured the Plain White T's with Vicci Martienez.

We encourage the university's alumni and the surrounding community to attend these exciting celebrations in support of our students.
