This show will open up their Masterworks season, and will feature DJ Sparr who will be performing songs he wrote with Lubbock in mind, as well as premiering a new composition. The show will take place Friday, November 12th.
Cho also spoke about the Buddy Holly Hall. He said that the beauty of the building is breathtaking, and that while the acoustics are always being worked on, that they are already so good that you could hear a pin drop on stage.
