With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
Proving Up is a new opera from Opera Omaha written by Missy Mazzoli (music) and Royce Vavrek (libretto). Wednesday the 26th marked its New York premiere (a second performance on Friday the 28th is already sold out). (Your humble correspondent had never seen an opera in his life before tonight, so if you thought this […]
One of the events featured on last weekend’s “Where Art Thou” list is a performance by Ensemble Signal, tonight at the Miller Theatre, of music by Steve Reich, an American composer well-known for his work in the genre of minimal music. At first glance, we didn’t think much of this event; most of us aren’t interested in “four […]
Bwog loves good music. We love good music reviews, too. Last night, we sent Ross Chapman to Miller Theater, to cover a concert with French composer Francesca Verunelli. Listen…or read on… “In a strange uneven evenness, strange things arise.” Thus Miller Theater’s program explains the modern music of the modern European composer Francesca Verunelli. Last […]
Columbia’s got a decent-sized campus, so one would think that finding rehearsal and performance space would be a fairly easy task for our many performing arts groups.

On a brisk end-of-summer afternoon, two evenings ago, two Barnard first-years eschew dinner at Hewitt to get some cultural exposure. Crossing Broadway, Bwog correspondents Asya Sagnak and Sarah Dahl attended a talk at Columbia’s Miller Theatre by Dominican-American artist Scherezade Garcia, whose murals are currently on display. Given the quirky title of the show (In […]
The latest Fro-Sci extra credit assignment was a quite cultural one; diligent yet jaded Fro-Sci pupil Dylan Cooper tells of his Sunday afternoon with his Fro-Sci class at Miller Theater. The Trials of Galileo. Sounds riveting, right? Well…what if the chair of Frontiers of Science urges all Fro-Sci students to attend the Special Event, which […]
The Ivy Ballet Exchange performed their first show at Miller Theater on February 15 and 16. Bwog sent ballet aficionado Ali Sawyer to check it out. This past weekend marked the debut of the Ivy Ballet Exchange, a collaboration between the ballet companies of Columbia, Harvard, and Princeton. I would be lying if I said […]
On January 25th, Don Byron’s New Gospel Quintet shared their heartfelt gospel jazz and fur hats with Morningside Heights. Seeker of the Funk Kem Walker reports from Miller Theater. Southern gospel is not the standard Morningside Heights musical fare—but that didn’t stop Don Byron’s New Gospel Quintet from jamming at Miller Theatre on Saturday night. Byron, with […]
