Otho Winger Experience returns to Manchester University

Judd Case, Otho Winger Experience 2016Manchester University professors are rock stars. Literally.

Every other spring, a group of faculty and staff rock the stage in Cordier Auditorium, and the entire North Manchester campus comes out to cheer them on.

“Othopalooza: The Planet is Asking for It” will take place on Tuesday, May 8.

The program starts at 3:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

Othopalooza features the Otho Winger Experience, a band that over the years has included faculty, staff and students. It takes its name from Otho Winger, who was a Manchester alumnus and professor before serving as president from 1911 to 1941. 

This is the final presentation of the year for the Values, Ideas and the Arts series. It offers credit to students for attending a broad variety of presentations that enrich the academic experience. 

Here’s a flashback to 2012.
