Cord Offers: Practice Rooms

One of the great things about Concordia is you do not have to be a music major or minor of any sort to participate in music or ensembles.

For instance, even as an English writing major, I am happily a part of Cantabile, the freshmen woman’s choir. While music majors are definitely present in our choir, I know many fellow singers who are majoring in something different too. It makes for a nice blend of people and is a great way to meet other people you might not otherwise!

Two pianos!

However, while I do love choir, I have been very much enjoying another component of the music department these past few weeks. I have played piano for the majority of my life now, and coming to college made it much more difficult to find a time and place to practice. Luckily for me, there are many practice rooms available in Hvidsten Hall for all for student use, music and non-music majors alike. All are equipped with at least one piano (some have two!), mirrors, and some have computers as well. This semester I have made it a priority to get over there and practice, and I have not regretted one second of my time in the practice rooms. It’s very relaxing to have some time alone, just the piano(s) and I, to concentrate on this art form of which I have grown quite fond.

Hello! My name is Ali, and I am so incredibly excited to share my thoughts with the COBBlog! I am from Dilworth, MN (basically a suburb of Moorhead), graduated from Oak Grove Lutheran High School in Fargo, and I plan on majoring in English (either literature or writing… decisions, decisions…).

I grew up to the recorded sounds of piano music and occupied myself with the whims of my imagination. In high school I was involved in choir and theatre and fell in love with my AP English Literature class. In my free time, I love listening to music, reading, playing piano, and watching movies/television shows. I have a rather unfortunate sweet tooth and an unconditional love for bread. And, most importantly, I could not be more excited to be a part of the Cobber community! I am looking forward to see where the next four years take me!
