Things to see
Written by Bwog Staff
If you’re looking for something to do in the upcoming days before spring break or are simply wanting a break from midterm studies, check out these upcoming events sponsored by the Center for the Core Curriculum and CU Arts Initiative:
- Members of the Classic Stage
Company are doing a reading of Hamlet in Miller Theater today and tomorrow. Pick up your tickets at the Miller Box Office before 5:30 (now!) for tonight’s 6 PM showing or tomorrow after 6 PM for Saturday’s 7:15 show. You get 2 tickets per CUID — plus, if you’re fretting over Shakespeare in Lit Hum, it might be a good idea to check it out. There’s no Kenneth Branagh, but the New York Times claims it “pulls you into the drama by the lapels,” so it must be good — right?
- The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center is offering all Columbia students and faculty members free tickets to the premiere presentation of Pullitzer Prize-winning composer Leon Kirchner‘s complete string quartets, performed by the Orion String Quartet on Wednesday, March 7, 7:30 PM in Alice Tully Hall. Kirchner will give a pre-concert discussion to ticket holders at 6:30 PM. There’s an email you’re supposed to print out and present with your CUID at Lincoln Center before 6:30 PM on the night of the concert — perhaps they’ll let that slide? Otherwise, find a friend in Music Hum to take care of it for you. A great opportunity to check out Carnegie Hall if you haven’t had the chance yet.
Meanwhile, take advantage of the nice weather outside (if you can stand the wetness) and do some reading on the steps — it’s abnormally pleasant given the forecast for this upcoming week.
