As your yearnings for summer are quashed by a brick wall of constant work for the next few weeks, step aside from it all for a few hours by taking advantage of the cultural opportunities of Columbia and the city. Ambrosial Arts Editor Kyra Bloom has put together the following assuredly kick-ass events. Submit an event to email@example.com.
- The Barnard/Columbia Senior Thesis Festival begins this weekend, with three plays directed by Rebecca Clark, Christina McCarver, and Kyle Radler, respectively. You can pick one or stay through all three–the times are different for each, so check them out on the Facebook page. Tickets are free, so reserve them at the TIC and head over to the Minor Latham Playhouse this weekend.
- The Barnard-Columbia Chorus performs Verdi’s Requiem this Friday, 8 pm, at Union Theological. The four soloists are talented and seasoned singers, so go support them for a measly $3 with CUID.
- The Columbia Review and Postcrypt are hosting a literary open mic at the Postcrypt Coffeehouse. Original works of fiction and poetry will be shared, so take a study break at 8:30 pm and go enjoy the creations of your talented classmates.
- The Jester presents their “Varsity Show” at 9 pm in the Lerner Blackbox. Fruit Paunch, Control Top, and CHOWDAH are all performing, with further guests to be announced later this week. Reserve a free ticket at the tic for an entertaining night.
