Live From Charlotte, It’s Tuesday Night

Photos by Leysha Caraballo. I have a confession to make: I am in a deeply committed (and one-sided) relationship with “Saturday Night Live.” We have weekly dates in front of my television set, and I spend hours reliving old memories via video clips and photos. I’ve even introduced them to my friends, who I have […]

Let’s Have a Conversation

I first noticed the helicopter as I was walking back from my night class. Being both new and female on campus, I wasn’t all that comfortable walking alone and the searchlight from the helicopter wasn’t exactly helping matters. I eventually made it back to my dorm, assumed there’d simply been a crime or police search, […]

Seasons of Love

I have a confession to make. Despite the fact I have been a fan of theater for the past 19 years of my life, I have never seen the musical “Rent.” I’ve never seen the movie or even listened to the cast album all the way through. For a long time, this was not intentional. […]

Notes of Passion

I’ll be honest, I am not a big music person and my knowledge of the ins and outs of live performances is very limited. That being said, my decision to attend Rowe Recital Hall for the first Faculty and Friends Concert in part of the Department of Music’s ongoing series was definitely the right choice. […]

Performance Review: “Symphony of Diversity”

The Symphony of Diversity was the best orchestra concert I have attended. It highlighted different cultures from all over the world, and each piece was carefully selected to fit a common theme of coming together and sharing music coming from different cultures. The concert started off with a beginners violin group called MusicalMinds. The group […]

2017 Spring Dance Concert is a Great Reminder of the Coming Summer.

You could hear the infectious music of the first performance “www.BluePrint” reverberate on the walls outside of Robinson Hall inviting latecomers into Belk Theatre’s showing of the 2017 Spring Dance Concert. They would have to wait until the doors opened for the second act, as to not disturb the amazing sounding performance. The second act […]

Life’s Imitation of Art: ‘La Bohème’

Hickory Ridge High School might be one of the saddest places I have ever been.  It doesn’t have nearly enough windows to suit its size, its labyrinthine parking lot is nearly impossible to navigate and the inside is dull and lifeless. What the school does have, however, is friendly people and an enthusiastic arts program. This may […]

Open Mic Night Done Right

Photos by Pooja Pasupula In my sophomore year of high school, my teacher decided to show us a video of the spoken word poet Sarah Kay. It was her TED talk, a video I’ve since watched dozens of times. She spoke confidently, with both passion and rhythm. I was in absolute awe. It was a […]

Throwing it Back Past Thursday

Have you ever walked into a room and wondered if you were in the right place? I have and luckily I was not alone; March 2. students entered room 340GHI confused and curious. We came for a comedy show and found a chipmunk DJ chanting “Do it for the ‘gram” and playing last September’s top […]
