Selena Stewart, senior music education major, performed at the showcase. She said this helps give the music department a platform to show others who may not be able to attend a regular concert the opportunity to see what they do.

 

“I’ve had several of my friends come up to me and say ‘man ya’ll are really good. I didn’t know we had a choir or a band,’”Stewart said.

 

Stewart said she felt honored to see president Slabach at the showcase.

 

“If you notice there were two events,” Stewart said. “It was really exciting to see that president Slabach chose to go see the choir.”

 

Amaya Howard, senior political science major, said the music in the library was a unique combination.

 

“When you think library you think quiet,” Howard said. “But the music was really good.”

 

Chris Drake, freshman undecided major, said he looks forward to more music in the library.

 

“I don’t mind live music in the library at all,” Drake said.

 

” I hope they do another concert next semester.”
