Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Rock, pop, hip hop, jazz or indie – whatever your jam is, you’re sure to find it at The Laurier Musicale student musical festival happening in the Quad on the Waterloo campus Saturday, Sept. 16 from 1 – 9 p.m.

The festival, a first of its kind, features a mix of current student musicians and musical alumni from across Laurier’s faculties and programs.

“The Laurier Musicale is a way to support music performance on campus and enhance an already dynamic student experience,” says event organizer and Communication Studies professor Martin Morris. “This is an opportunity for an inclusive and diverse set of performances in a festival format to celebrate Laurier’s reputation as the most musical campus.”

Sixteen acts are set to take centre stage at the festival, including The Controversial Sharks, Tea for Two, Pretty to Think, Sam Leavens and the WLU Junk Line. Morris, who teaches the fourth-year seminar course Music and Society is slated to perform with band mates Abby Goodrum, a professor in the User Design Experience program, and Jeff Fleming, a 2016 alumnus of the Faculty of Music.

Representatives from various student clubs and associations at Laurier will be included at the festival, with an opportunity to promote their groups between acts. Veritas Café will be open on Sept. 16 to support the event.

The festival, funded through the Student Life Levy, is free and open to all Laurier students, faculty, staff and community members.
