Tonight was a very eventful night on campus. I got to experience the best of two worlds, athletics and music. My friends and I helped to make EC history as we attended the first ever home game for men’s volleyball. It was so much fun! The stands were packed with purple and gold. The team took on Nazareth College whose colors also happen to be purple and gold (we had more spirit though!). Both teams brought intensity to the game. There were some points where we thought we were going to get hit by the ball; luckily no fans were harmed : )
A bit before 8 we headed out to catch the first Encore performance of the term. We quickly switched gears from making history to learning about some music history. Tonight was musical excerpts from La Traviata presented by Tri Cities Opera. It was one amazing performance. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect at first as the performance started out with only two pianists. After the first number, the audience was shocked as two performers came out in costume and started to bring their powerful voices into the mix. They performed with a lot of emotion which brought the Italian and back story to life.
I cannot wait to see what other great performances and sporting events the rest of the term will bring!
