First Annual SLC Winter Open Concert — Friday, December 2 @ 7pm, Marshall Field, Room 1
Interested in performing that masterpiece you’ve spent hours perfecting in the Marshall Field basement?  Want to try out some new repertoire?  Or, want to hear what exactly your musician-friends are working on?  If you’re a musician (vocalist, instrumentalist, you don’t have to be a third) looking to perform, sign up outside Joan Rudd’s office in Marshall Field (2nd floor, make a right).  If you just want to listen, head to Room 1 at 7pm this Friday!

Nina Sparling (Editor, “What’s Up”) is a bi-coastal aspiring bread baker frustrated with the current food system. Originally from Berkeley, she moved to New York, complaining most of the way, until she found the Met and figured out the subway (but still has serious envy for Bay Area vegetables). Currently a sophomore at Sarah Lawrence, Nina studies languages, political ecology, and geography and tries to figure out how they all relate.
