Sat. Afternoon Arch Sing!

You'll Find Us Here
Originally uploaded by butwait.

Usually arch sings (a capella singing groups clustered in one of the stone arches on campus to dramatic acoustic effect) are too late at night for the hours we currently keep, but on Saturday (Oct. 8th) there's one just for us... at 4pm! Families throughout the greater Princeton area are invited to the first Cotsen Family Arch Sing at the Blair Arch on the Princeton University campus (pictured, behind the bookstore, email me if you need more detailed directions). The a capella groups volunteering their time for this first arch sing are dedicating their music to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Students from the Katzenjammers, Tigerlilies, Tigertones and other groups that will perform on this afternoon will solicit donations to rebuild the homes and lives of those affected by this national disaster. Come and listen, sip hot cider and nibble on donuts, and celebrate the great tradition of jazz, born and nurtured in the early part of the 20th century in the now devastated city of New Orleans. Bring a friend!

And if you want to make a day of it, see also this link from the Princeton Weekly Bulletin, which details all the cool family-friendly Community Day events going on at the University this coming Saturday.
