Not your typical Saturday night

If you’re like me, and you can appreciate the vocal talent you don’t have when you hear it, Arts After Dark is the perfect event for you.

Arts After Dark is an annual showcase for singers, dancers, musicians, comedians and dramatists that takes place at Harkness Chapel. The event hosted by the Music Undergraduate Student Involvement Committee (M.U.S.I.C) and will take place on Saturday, Oct. 18 at 9 p.m.until Sunday, Oct. 19 at 2 a.m. Basically, it’s a recital on steroids.

Case Western Reserve University is full of talented students, why not come and support them? M.U.S.I.C president Shannon Smith believes the show is a good opportunity for student artists to perform for their peers.

“The individual students and organizations performing on stage dedicate their time to music, comedy and theater in addition to their other studies,” Smith said. “Arts After Dark lets us see all of their hard work.”

CWRU is a place full of students with varied passions and our student body is far from typical. So, come out to Arts After Dark to discover the talents of the students all around you.

Moreover, the evening definitely will not be monotonous—you can expect a variety of types of music ranging from classical to jazz to rock, and performances from solo artists as well as ensembles. Also, popular campus organizations like Solstice, Case in Point, Speakeasy, Case Men’s Glee Club and Case Footlighters will be there to provide further entertainment. It is sure to be a night of varied performances.

Additionally, don’t shy away from this event if you’re not very familiar with or knowledgeable about the arts. Smith thinks the event is enjoyable for any type of student.

“You do not have to know a lot about music or the arts to be able to appreciate what happens at Arts After Dark. The energy and enthusiasm of the performers speaks for itself and will leave you amazed, inspired, and even crying from laughter,” said Smith.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to miss this. And if I haven’t convinced you enough yet, I have two words for you: free Chipotle.
