If you are an SLC student who will be using October Study Days to actually study, the Music Library will be open for you! But with reduced hours:
Regular hours resume next Wednesday, the 22nd.
SLC has a longstanding (40+ years!) relationship with the Metropolitan Opera. As such, we offer VERY special pricing for the SLC community on phenomenal orchestra level opera tickets. Weeknight (Mon.-Thur.) cost only $30, and weekend (Fri.-Sun.) are $40, a huge discount considering how these tickets normally cost over $200!
Ticket orders for the Fall must be in by Saturday, October 25th, so get your orders in by then. Schedule below the cut.
SLC alumna Amy Laburda ‘07 just wrote an article for The Toast about Jonathan Larson’s musicals called "On Rent, Tick, Tick… Boom!, and Caring a Whole Lot”.
This article has been certified enjoyable even if you aren’t into Rent. Here’s an excerpt:
Part of what makes Larson’s work endure is not only that it hit at a moment when the AIDS crisis met the disaffection of the generation coming of age in the early to mid-1990s. And it isn’t simply that Larson told the culturally resonant story of La Boheme in a new way. As Christopher Isherwood noted inhis New York Times review of the revival of Tick, Tick… Boom!, the show feels as if it could have been written “yesterday, or today, or tomorrow.” While both Tick, Tick… Boom! and Rent are musicals deeply rooted in their respective times and places, they also include sharply drawn observations about human nature. Even — sometimes especially — the ugly parts.
