Creating Order out of Chaos Interest Meeting

Ally Bernstein-Bear ’13 and Betsy Sallee ’13 offer you a new student group to incite sensations of warmth and fuzziness within:

Creating Order out of Chaos, Wesleyan’s brand-spanking-new knit+crochet supergroup, is having its first interest meeting. Creating Order out of Chaos aims to:
– teach anyone/everyone interested how to knit and/or crochet
– use these newfound skills for good by making items for charity this semester
– as a group, work to create knitted/crocheted artworks that are accessible to the entire community (yarn-bombing, installation pieces, etc.) during the spring semester
– emphasize and enjoy the crafting process
Crafters of all skill levels are totally welcome, including those who have never laid hands on a needle.
Bring blankets, your current project and something good to eat! We’ll discuss our plans for the group, and we hope you will all bring ideas of your own. Rain location is room 2107 in Westco.

Date: Sept. 13 – Sept. 13

Auditions for “Becoming Twenty-Something: A Cabaret Evening”

Ross Shenker ’11 and Samantha Pearlman ’11 write…


Auditions have begun for Second Stage’s production of “Becoming Twenty-Something: A Cabaret Evening.” This production will consist of 4-6 singers who will perform existing songs from contemporary pop music and musical theater. You will have the unique opportunity to learn how to select repertoire that is not only a good choice vocally but emotionally as well. Each singer will recount personal experiences, stories, and anecdotes and attempt to find music/lyrics that embody the stories in a way simple words cannot. Performances are October 7th, 8th, and 9th in The ’92 Theater. Auditions are by appointment and we ask you to prepare a 1-2 minute pop or musical theater song. Sheet music is preferred as a pianist will be on hand. E-mail rshenker@wesleyan.edu or spearlman@wesleyan.edu to set up an audition time. You must contact us by September 17th in order to be considered.
