South African choir group cancels McCain performance
Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016
MANHATTAN — The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University Choir concert scheduled for Nov. 14 at Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium has been canceled. The performance was part of the university's McCain Performance Series.
Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University recently suspended all academic activities due to a nationwide protest regarding fees that involves dozens of universities in South Africa. According to McCain Auditorium Executive Director Todd Holmberg, this has made it impossible for the choir to embark on its previously scheduled North American tour. Holmberg said that the choir deeply regrets the necessity of canceling this engagement, and that McCain Auditorium looks forward to inviting this fine ensemble at some point in the future.
The McCain box office will offer ticket refunds or exchanges to all current ticket holders of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University Choir performance. Patrons can request a ticket refund to a valid credit card, or may exchange their tickets for another McCain Performance Series event.
Please call or visit the box office during the business hours of 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The box office can be reached at 785-532-6428.
