The Music department will showcase its eighth annual Faculty Jamboree on Friday, Oct. 24, at 8 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall.
This year?s show, ?A Day in the Life,? will take a comical and musical look at a typical day in the Music department.
?About eight years ago, the faculty decided they wanted to do something that would take them out of their normal routine and allow them to perform onstage together,? says Teresa Kelly, Music department publicist. ?The Faculty Jamboree is meant to highlight our faculty in a different light than they?re usually seen.?
Nearly a dozen faculty and staff members will perform at this year?s event.
?Everyone in the department was excited about this year?s theme, so this performance should be pretty fun,? says Kelly.
Highlights of the upcoming jamboree include a vocal piece, ?Freeway,? performed by Iris Levine, Janine Riveire, Phillip Clarke and Dave Grasmick, and composed by Stan Gibb; a song performance of ?What?s the Matter With Kids Today? by Kim Guenette; a voice class taught by Susan Burns; and an audience sing-along conducted by Riveire. In addition, Peter Yates will perform on guitar, and Dave Cahueque, Dave Kopplin and Dave Tough ? better known as ?The Radio Daves? ? will give their rendition of several Beatles tunes.
Tickets are $7, and proceeds go toward scholarships and other departmental needs. For more information, contact Teresa Kelly at (909) 869-3554 or reserve seats online.
