Middletown Potluck Tonight

middletown-potluck-better-colors

Really cool message from Ari Ebstein ’16 about an awesome event tonight, urging you to come eat and hopefully also make some food!

Middletown Potluck is happening tonight! It is a space for Wesleyan students and Middletown residents to come together and break bread. Bring food to share with new friends; bring stories to share about yourself; bring open ears, heart, and mind. Let’s create community one meal at a time. :)

Featured speakers on the theme of the Middletown Experience will be:

  • Nur Moebius, who will tell her story of how she came to Middletown.
  • Arthur Moore, a 9th grade student at the Green Street Art Center interested in poetry and spoken word.
  • Jalen Alexander, tutoring coordinator for the Wesleyan affiliation with Traverse Square.

Company Orchestra Auditions

From Ben Zucker ’15:

Want to make music? Want to Be Alive???? Wesleyan’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” (running April 25-27) is looking for musicians to round out our pit orchestra. We are looking for string players, woodwind players (doublers encouraged!), trombonists, and percussionists. If you’re looking to get involved with some theater and to play some beautiful/awesome music, this is the place.

Informal auditions will be held in the Music Studio Lobby on Sunday, March 3, and Monday, March 4, from 4-6 PM. Come ready to play; you don’t have to prepare anything, and expect to sight-read parts of the score. We look forward to having you!

Date: Today, March 3rd and tomorrow, March 4th
Time: 4-6pm
Place: Music Studio Lobby
Cost: We’d pay you if we could…

J Street U Open Meeting

Screen Shot 2013-03-02 at 6.30.12 PM

Come to the J Street U Open meeting!  Officially J Street “is the political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans fighting for the future of Israel as the democratic homeland of the Jewish people. We believe that Israel’s Jewish and democratic character depend on a two-state solution, resulting in a Palestinian state living alongside Israel in peace and security.”

Unofficially, we like to think of ourselves as an irreverent student movement that is shaking up the status quo in the hawkish American Jewish community. We also have a knack for making, mildly inappropriate, slighly offensive Two-State Solution Ryan Gosling Memes.

We have a lot of really exciting plans for this semester so whether you sing hatikvah in your sleep, think Zionism is an irredeemable racist project, or have never thought about these issues before, we hope you will join us.

Date: Sunday, March 3rd, 2013
Time: 8 PM
Place: 41 Wyllys Room 133

Ensemble Pamplemousse at Russell House

From Ashlin Aronin ’13, as previewed in Wesleying’s Winter Concert Peview:

This Sunday, March 3rd, the student-run Experimental Music Group kicks off its spring season with a performance by New York-based Ensemble Pamplemousse at Russell House.

“[Theirs is] a style and concept that bridges the gap between the earliest conscious sounds humans made together and the most up to the moment exploration of musical possibilities…the event horizon of each sound describ[es] a moment with infinite possibilities, including infinite duration.” (George Grella, The Big City)

This show features works and performances by several Wes alumni, including Andrew Greenwald, Ivan Naranjo and Maria Stankova.

Thanks for listening!
