The Otho Winger Experience is Manchester University's rock band in residence. Composed of faculty, staff, and students, it plays live music from throughout the history of rock. Since 2005, the members of OWE have been performing live, when they feel like it, when their tour bus needs gas, and as a celebration of the Manchester community.

The proposed 2023 concert, The Final Show, will feature the band playing fan favorites from its 17-year career. Greg Clark, Mark Bryant, Dave Hicks, Dan Chudzynski, Katharine Ings, Judd Case, Jonathan Watson, and Tim Reed are the principal musicians. Ings, Jena Oke, and Kate Eisenbise-Crell will dance. Supporting singing and instrumentation will come from Scott Humphries, Debra Lynn, members of the Manchester Symphony Orchestra and MU choirs.

To do so, members of the University community must seek understanding of themselves which begins with their personal narratives.
