Description

The UL College of the Arts’s presents ArTech Fusion, Friday, March 29, 2019, at the Acadiana Center for the Arts from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. ArTech Fusion will feature performances and talks that promote and highlight the dynamic relationship between the arts and technology, through the use of creative collaboration. Premiere performances and lectures will feature video, dance, animations, and music. Additionally, The College of the Arts will honor and award the SPARK Lifetime Achievement Award to the late Raymond Goodrich and the Lafayette Music Company.

Raymond Goodrich’s passion for music and life was evident from the moment you met him. Born in New Iberia, Raymond was exposed early to the joys of music as a young band student. Raymond was with Lafayette Music Company since 1965, working his way up to the top and eventually purchasing the business with his wife, Karen, in 1977. Raymond made it a priority to support and foster music education at every level in the Acadiana region. In addition to his vast community service, Raymond created seven endowed scholarships to fund music education for deserving music students at UL Lafayette. Those scholarships have grown through the years and have assisted nearly 150 plus students with more than $400,000 dedicated scholarship dollars. Lafayette Music Company continues to add to those scholarships annually through proceeds from its Louisiana Showcase of Marching Bands State Championships, launched by Raymond in 1989. The Showcase has raised over $1 million dollars, toward improving music programs in Louisiana.

ArTech Fusion is the central event of the Festival of the Arts, a three-week celebration of the innovative, creative work by faculty, students, and community partners at UL Lafayette and in the local community. The festival will run March 11 - 29 at various locations on campus and around Lafayette. For a full schedule of events go to http://arts.louisiana.edu/about-us/festival-arts
