3 Things to Look Forward to In April
Posted on Saturday, April 2nd, 2016 by Ali Froslie
Even though the wind is howling and the weather is colder than the word April would suggest, spring is indeed upon us. For us Cobbers, this is an exciting time. Not only is summer close enough to taste, but there are tons of really cool events that take place in April. Even though many of us are feeling homeworked out, there’s enough excitement to keep us going. 🙂
1. Masterworks concert. Like the Christmas Concerts, this is a collaboration between all the different choirs and the orchestra as well. This year, we are performing Mass in C Major by Beethoven with some super talented faculty and guest soloists. It’s a challenging piece, but the choirs have been working hard (I’m so excited to hear the orchestra and the soloists as well… they always sound amazing!). Swing on by on April 17th for some good ol’ music making!
2. Cornstock. The announcement is tonight, folks. We have yet to find out which artists are coming to play at Cornstock (a big concert CEC puts on at the end of the April to celebrate the year). Tonight is also the Battle of the Bands… an event at which Cobber bands compete for the chance to play before the main groups at Cornstock. It’s a pretty cool opportunity for some terrifically talented troupes!
3. The end of finals! Who am I kidding? Who doesn’t look forward to finals being done? Well, I guess the end of the year always is a bit bittersweet, but right now, I am looking forward to having a break from mandatory studying and class work. Yes, I love school, but I also love having time to read my own books and watch a little Netflix too. 🙂 But, come fall, I’ll be very excited to start my new classes– all of which look very interesting!
