Mixolydians End of Semester Concert

Want to kick ass on your finals? Studies show that babies who listen to classical music may be smarter, fatter, and more awesome than babies that don’t. Don’t you want to be one of those babies?

Take a break during reading week to come hear the Mixes sing in their final concert of the year! We’ve got a great assortment of music this semester, including, (just to give you a little taste) a Bosnian folk song, some jazz, vespers, and even a little James Taylor.

Date: Sunday, May 13
Time: 3 pm
Place: Memorial Chapel

[Title of Show] Auditions!

Come audition for [title of show], this semester’s awesomest self-referential backstage musical!

[title of show] is a four-person, one-piano, one-act musical comedy about two guys – Jeff and Hunter – who decide to write a musical, but soon realize that their conversations about writing are much more interesting than their actual writing. Of course, they decide to write a musical about themselves writing a musical (about themselves writing a musical), and then star in it, along with their two friends – Susan and Heidi. Hilarity, harmony and numerous references to Broadway flops ensue…

Hear the Mixolydians Sing Tomorrow
