Are you an acoustic musician? Do you and your friends have a folk band or just like to jam?
Active Minds is hosting an event called Send Silence Packing and needs musicians to perform. The event is a suicide awareness and prevention program that will be held on Monday April 16th from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm outside on the lawn in front of Olin.
