Gridiron to ASU Gammage: Gus Farwell and the ASU Symphony Orchestra, Gospel Choir and Sun Devil Marching Band
Former ASU quarterback and tenor Gus Farwell, who made worldwide headlines during the pandemic singing from his balcony in Barcelona, returns to the ASU Gammage stage to sing beloved works from the opera, broadway and American songbook featuring the ASU Symphony Orchestra, Gospel Choir, the Sun Devil Marching Band and faculty performers.
Many know Farwell from his time playing quarterback for the ASU football team or as the voice singing Go Devils Go! at touchdowns, but Farwell became famous worldwide in the early days of the pandemic for singing opera from his balcony in Barcelona. Every night for 65 days, after the applause for the front line medical workers, Farwell would sing to the gathered crowds, bringing hope and solace to a weary city.
Brought to you by ASU Gammage in partnership with Sun Devil Athletics and ASU Salute to Service Week 2022, the program will include songs from Tosca, Carmen, La Bohème, the Wizard of Oz, Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables and more! Admission is free.
