On Thursday, 2月 17, The 电竞app 剧院 Collective debuted their winter musical, 芝加哥:高中版, and sold out its Friday and Sunday performances! From the stunning costumes and lighting design to the captivating performances, the cast and crew poured their hearts and souls into bringing this hugely entertaining, 令人眼花缭乱的故事.
多样性与文化分享 is a new performing arts course for the winter trimester designed to celebrate the diversity of cultures represented by each person in our community. 在这门课上, students will explore and exchange their personal stories and those of their ancestors through music, 跳舞, 诗歌, 首歌, 和讲故事. The performance aspect will be cultivated from a regular practice of sharing with each other and will culminate with a music and 跳舞 concert at the end of the trimester.
音乐系一直很忙! 忙于推出产品, 会议上著名的音乐家, and challenging our students in new and interesting ways. I’d like to take you on a brief music tour and offer you a window into what we’ve done during the winter trimester and what we are looking forward to debuting in the spring.
With physical distancing and remote learning now the norm for many, the performing arts have been affected tremendously. Even New York's Broadway theaters and many others nationwide remain closed. This posed the question, how were we at 电竞app going to be able to bring theater to our community?
On Friday, 五月 3, 电竞app proudly awarded the following...
