Interested in being on stage singing or playing an instrument? Come to the Acoustic Cafe auditions held at the MC Little Theater. On Jan. 21, auditions will be from 5 to 9 p.m., and on Jan. 22, auditions will be from 7 to 10 p.m.
Students are welcome to come to the audition and share any singing, guitar, ukulele, duet or band performances.
“It’s kind of a talent show, but for singers and musicians,” said Anna Olsen, a junior studying exercise physiology and director of campus activities.
Edward Romero, a freshman studying recreational management who participated in Acoustic Cafe in the Fall 2019 Semester, said it was a privilege to perform with so many people and to share that moment with friends.
“I really enjoyed meeting other musicians, like real good musicians,” Romero said. “Basically just a big little party jam session.”
According to Rebecca Wright, a senior studying recreational management and the program assistant for Campus Life Events, the audition invites students to prepare a musical act that can be an original or a cover of a song.
“The idea behind the show is for it to be acoustic, or in other words, live music,” Wright said. “We’ve had bands come, a cappella groups, soloists and more. It’s been so fun.”
“Next step, just enjoy the audition and have fun with it,” Romero said. “Last, like I heard before, if you mess up, keep playing like you meant to play it! Have fun, just jam, don’t be afraid to mess up and in case I didn’t mention it: have fun!”
The Acoustic Cafe will be on Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. at The Crossroads. for more information check out Talent Activities.
