Yes, my event will have a reception
Additional Equipment
We will need the Mike, Light, Sound + Projection access in the Bader hall from 4-6pm. We borrowed a monitor with stand last year. If possible, we could use it again. Last year we used 6 long tables, 10 round tables & chairs that was stores in Zel 280 for an hour (5:50-6:50pm). We will plan to set up and put them back before Orchestra starts their practice in Zel 280 at 7pm as we have done last year. So as long as tables and chairs are stacked & stored in the room no additional equipment is needed for the reception.
Main part of this event is UWM Symphony Orchestra Concert with UWM Korea Day Festival that Prof. Jun Kim requested space for. https://uwm.edu/arts/event/uwm-symphony-orchestra-concert-with-uwm-korea-day-festival/
