Week of March 6 – March 12

TONIGHT: SLC String Orchestra, 8pm Reisinger
The Sarah Lawrence String Orchestra, conducted by Sungrai Sohn, takes the stage tonight in Reisinger.  Isabel Arenivar (’13), winner of the student concerto competition, is playing a Haydn violin concerto.  Other works will be featured as well, so head over to Reisinger on a rainy Sunday evening for some quality classical music.

Lecture: The Unbearable Whiteness of Greening: Race, Nature, and Ecocriticism – 3/7 @ 5:30pm, Science Center 103
Paul Outka, professor at Florida State, is coming to SLC to talk about race, nature, the environmental movement, and how they all fit together.  A scholar of literature and culture, Outka will discuss how segregation plays into some of the big questions in environmental studies and action.  This Monday’s lecture is part of the Intersections Colloquium: Border Zones in Environmental Studies, the Arts, Science, Technology, and Society.

Zoë Keating, Avant Cello – 3/8 @ 1:30pm, Reisinger.
I have one word on this one: GO.  Another Music Tuesday, this is definitely one of the best events not only of the spring season, but of the semester.  Zoë Keating is a sort of one woman orchestra who mixes technology, music, and improvisation to create something that’s unique and amazing.

Blues and Booze at the Bayou [OFF CAMPUS] – 3/10 @ 9pm
The Sarah Lawrence Blues ensembles are playing at the Bayou Bar in Fleetwood this Thursday night, taking Blues and Booze to a whole new level.  Shuttles will be running to and fro, so really, there is no excuse not to go.  For those arranging your own transportation, the address is 580 Gramatan Avenue, Mount Vernon, NY 10552.

Porn Marathon – 3/11 @ 11:30am-11:30pm, Pillow Room
What better way to kick off Spring Break than watching a porn marathon with some good friends and total strangers?  The grande finale of Sleaze Week, this promises to be an experience.  Let’s see if they can keep it up all day…

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.
