USU Eastern Benson Sisters Concert and Dinner to be Held November 5

 

The wait is finally over. After being twice postponed due to the ongoing pandemic, Utah State University Eastern will host the Benson Sisters on Nov. 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center ballroom.

The trio will perform their 1940s and 50s era music. Along with the concert, a full dinner will be catered by USU Eastern Dining. In addition, actual World War II artifacts, including a photo op with a World War II Jeep, will be on display, courtesy of the Utah Military History Group.

The three Benson sisters recreate the Andrew Sisters performances from the World War II era. Free admission will be offered to all World War II and Korean War veterans.

“We love to get our audience laughin’ and dancin’ in the aisles as we recreate the Andrew Sisters from World War II,” the sisters have said.

Tickets to the show are $17 if purchased in advance online, or $20 at the door. Couples can receive two tickets for $35, while active duty and veterans can receive tickets for $15 apiece. Veterans of World War II and the Korean War will receive complementary admission.
