For the second year in a row, students took to the stage on February 15th in the Trojan Center cafeteria for our second annual “Tips for Talent” event! The event, hosted by DSU Live and the campus Diversity club, is meant to show off the musical talents of DSU students while raising money for charity. Just a few of the many performers are pictured in this post.
This year, we made over $150 in a 90-minute timespan that will be donated to a local food pantry. Equally exciting was the amount of great talent that took the stage, which included many of music instructor Sandy Champion’s students from her private lessons. The event garnered such positive feedback that we are hoping to host another one before the end of the semester. Congrats to all of the performers, and thank you to all of the students and faculty for their generous donations!
We were excited to see DSU audio production student Mike Rugg play an acoustic show at Mochavino, which featured some fantastic cover songs from bands such as Radiohead and Tears for Fears. A great crowd of students came out to check out the show.
Mike also performed recently at Myxers coffee shop on campus. Check out his performance of Someday You Will be Loved by Death Cab for Cutie:
