Noelle Elliott, the Publicity and Concert Coordinator for O’Neill Hall, asked me this week if I could see if any volunteers would be willing to lend a hand at O’Neill Hall next weekend. (Refresher: O’Neill Hall is the new structure on the south side of the stadium and it houses the Department of Music/Sacred Music and a few new performance spaces.)
Next weekend is the O’Neill Hall Fall Rollout Weekend. There are two events in particular that she could use help with. Here is the info on each:
Roomful of Teeth (click link for more info)
8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26
The celebration begins on Friday with a FREE performance by Roomful of Teeth in the LaBar Recital Hall. The Grammy-winning vocal collective is dedicated to reimagining the expressive potential of the human voice. Through study with masters from vocal traditions the world over, the eight-voice ensemble continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques. This rollout weekend performance will include a new work by ND faculty composer John Liberatore.
Open House (click link for more info)
2–4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27
The party continues with an Open House designed to showcase the spectacular new spaces throughout O’Neill, and featuring performances representing the breadth of activity in the Department of Music and the Sacred Music at Notre Dame program. From instrumental chamber music and solo piano and organ performances, to solo voice, opera scenes, the Glee Club, the Chorale, Concordia, and the SMND Children’s Choir—there will be something for everyone.
Some of you have ushered over at O’Neill already and Noelle is very thankful to those who have helped in the past. Even if you haven’t been over there, any help would be most appreciated. If you are interested and available next weekend, please send Noelle an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
She will give you the details on start times and what needs assistance. Thanks for your help with this!
(*As always, please note that as O’Neill Hall and the Department of Music are a separate entity from DPAC, any hours worked there won’t count towards your DPAC hours.)
