Enchantment under our roof
What’s happening at MRU this semester
A new semester has begun, and with every new semester comes a new set of people just wanting to show what they can do.
There are many groups who want to show off their work, be it Jazz musicians who want to show off their best performance to date, or established acts who will grace us with their tour. Whatever the case will be, Mount Royal University will be hosting a great deal of events this semester.
A quick glance on the horizon shows a lot of events to get excited for. In case you’re not in the mood to go and read every poster there is on campus, they are as follows:
Jazz @ noon is at the Leacock Theater, where Jazz diploma students will be playing for an hour; it’s absolutely free, and you can attend on the Jan. 16 and 30, as well as Feb. 13 and 27.
The Arkells are scheduled to perform at Wyckham House on Jan. 24.
The Students’ Association of Mount Royal University is proud to present the Hamilton rockers, who are making their only stop in Calgary at MRU while they tour across the nation.
Tickets are $17 in advance (and $20 at door) when purchased from Copywrite and an MRU ID is necessary to purchase, as the show is exclusively for Mount Royal students.
Two days after the Arkells performance is “Rumble in the Jungle.” Four DJs — The Nick of Time, Krogh Sun, 808 and Reggie Suave — and live band Freak Motif will be performing, and there will be a costume contest for the best jungle themed costumes.
Great prizes await for the best one, and there will be a photo booth (because why not take photos of you in a Gorilla costume?) The event is at 8 p.m. and tickets are $7 in advance (and $10 at the door).
Last but not least are the two upcoming performances that are part of the Wyatt concert series, the New York Polyphony (Feb. 15) and the Miro quartet (March 27); both will be held at the Leacock Theater, and both will be at 7:30 p.m.
