Trademark Horn Sounds of Chicago to
Headline Front & Center Gala Feb. 3
Chicago Chicago
Front and Center: a great concert and an opportunity to support education

December 21, 2006:: No. 105

From their first successes — “Make Me Smile” and “25 or 6 to 4” — through subsequent hits, such as “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” “Saturday in the Park,” “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day,” “Old Days” and “If You Leave Me Now,” Chicago redefined what rock and roll could be.

The group will bring its trademark horn sound and solid musicianship to the Honda Center (formerly the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim) Saturday, Feb. 3, to headline Cal State Fullerton’s 12th annual Front & Center gala.

Titan alumnus Jack O’Connell (B.A. history ’73), state superintendent of public instruction, will emcee the event. O’Connell previously served for two decades in the California state Legislature, first as an assemblyman representing the 35th District; then as a senator for the 18th District.

Among the highlights of the evening, which will benefit scholarship programs, will be performances by students from the award-winning Theatre and Dance Department. In addition, the university will present the Orange County Titan Award to longtime Titan supporter Rick Muth, president of Orco Block Co. and founding member of the Family Business Council.

Gold and silver tables of 10 — including dinner — are $10,000 and $5,000 each, respectively; individual seats are $1,200 and $600 per person, respectively. Seating in other areas of the arena also is available for the 8 p.m. show at ticket prices ranging from $40 to $90 each. Student discounts are available.
