Weekly Event Breakdown: Week of March 17th


With all the buzz about House Party Weekend, it’s very easy to lose sight of what is happening this very week outside of the performers for the Greek Life sponsored event. We’ve got a plethora of other awesome events happening throughout the week to keep you at bay while you await this fantastic slew of musical delight.

First up, this coming Tuesday, March 19th (3/19) at 7:30 p.m. will be Artist Affiliate Marcus Smolenskly’s viola recital, accompanied by pianist Chi-Chen Wu. The pair will be playing a comprehensive performance of music that spans over two centuries of classical composers’ works; including Bach, Vieuxtemps, and Prokofiev. You won’t want to miss this incredibly unique performance, this Tuesday in Rooke Recital Hall in the Sigfried Weis Music Building!

VanOortWEBpstrAlong with Marcus Smolensky, Bucknell has acquired another amazing guest artist for us to enjoy this Thursday! Come check out Dutch pianist Bart van Oort perform a comprehensive span of works ranging from the Classical (c. 1730-1820) to the Romantic (c. 1815-1910) periods of music. Van

Oort recently finished recording the complete keyboard works of Mozart, and will undoubtedly put on an amazing show. Come check him out this Thursday, March 21st (3/21) at 7:30 p.m. in the Nancy Rooke Recital Hall.

If this House Party scene isn’t quite your thing, make sure to stop by 7th Street Café on Friday night to check out Open Mic Night! This is for all you up-and-coming musicians out there (you know who you are) who are looking for a great venue to set up and bust out some jams for a nice crowd. And if listening to music is more up your alley as opposed to performing, there is surely going to be a great mix of sweet performers for you to come listen to! Open Mic Night at 7th Street Café starts at 10 p.m. on Friday, March 22nd (3/22).

Finally, this Saturday, March 23rd (3/23), Bucknellian Tom Carle, ’14 will be performing his junior voice recital in the Nancy Rooke Recital Hall of the Sigfried Weis Music Building. The performance will start at 7 p.m. and last until 8 p.m., which will leave you with plenty of time to check out some of the other great House Party performances happening around campus. Here at Campus Vinyl BucknellU we are all about our student musicians, so attendance of this event is highly encouraged- it is sure to be an incredible recital!
