Student musicians fill in as
Spring Concert openers
By Melina Bourdeau
“This was probably the funnest college show that we’ve had,” said Jana Kramer, country singer and headliner for the SUAB concert. “Everyone was really engaged, interacting, enthusiastic and fun, and there were some really special moments. It was a great crowd.”
Kramer, a “One Tree Hill” actress turned singer, performed with her band in DPAC on March 5.
During the concert Kramer sang her new single “I Got the Boy.”
“It was a true story about my high school sweetheart Matthew,” said Kramer. “So the first time I heard the song I was like, ‘This is my song.’ I feel like everyone can relate to it, even if it’s not about their high school sweetheart.”
Despite snow delaying Kramer’s plane, the concert was not rescheduled. The opening band, however, cancelled at 3 p.m. the day of the show due to the weather.
SUAB Concert Co-Chairs Denae Pieroni and Maddie Alper were able to find three students to open for Kramer.
“With three openers instead of one, there was a little bit of a time change that we had to work out in order to still get Kramer on stage by 9, but it ended up working out,” said Pieroni.
Junior Anthony Martel, senior Molly Buckley and sophomore Kaitlyn Gordon were able to prepare and perform with a few hours’ notice.
Ram Idol winner Gordon sang three covers on stage as the first opener of the night.
“If I had a couple weeks to prepare,” Gordon said, “I would have psyched myself out. It was overwhelming, but I couldn’t give up on an opportunity like that.”
Martel played the acoustic guitar and sang original songs titled “Reason for your Company,” “Join Singing” and “I Don’t Want to Feel This Way Every Day But…”
Buckley played two songs concluding student performances.
“It was so much fun to be up there performing,” Buckley said. “The audience was clapping, singing along and it just seemed like everyone had fun. My friends all came out to support and made a beautiful sign for me, which meant more to me than I think they’ll ever know.”
The organization of this year’s concert started with the election of the concert co-chairs last April. After SUAB’s general board voted on the genre of music they preferred, the chairs booked an artist. In the fall, the main focus was on publicity and advertising.
In the spring semester, their work increased. Ticket sales, designing T-shirts, booking a room and organizing the concert committee all occur within three months.
“Music has always been a passion of mine, so to get the chance to do something like this was really exciting for me, and I learned so much,” said Peironi. “Although there were a few obstacles along the way, it was all worth it in the end, and I’m really happy with the way it turned out.”
While playing SUaB, I noticed that the replacement for the Mancubus was far from squishy, so I decided to take him and make him into a boss. The arena I made is meant to make the Mancubus’ fire avoidable by ducking down behind the four windows. However, the arena is small, so any hit you take is going to hit hard because the fire doesn’t have the room to spread.
Soy el Angel de la Musica…. Desde las esferas divinas del amor, donde mi aura cubre toda manifestacion de Dios, que es continiua, porque nunca cesa su Creacion, desciend entre destellos celestiales, para llenar tu vida de alegria, de encanto y de ganas de vivir.
Ven a la suabe cadencia de mi luz.
Recibe mi abrazo, descansa en mi corazon y cierra los ojos.
Aspira profundamente… Y bañate en mi esencia angelical, en cada nota de mi escala celestial.
Visualiza como alas doradas, que se desplazan sobre tu espacio, ritmica, suavemente, despidiendo luces celestiales al compas de las emanaciones del amor, de la luz de estrelas de composiciones divinas, como espirales vibrantes que entran en tu ser, las llameantes claves armoniosas de los sonidos, que son los pensamientos de Dios.
Compartiremos la magia del amor que el dia de hoy te tiene reservado…… Con amor desde mi corazon……
EL ANGEL DE LA MUSICA

De repente abria los ojos, mientras mis labios tocaban suabe mente tu piel, en ese instante vi tus ojos cerrados, vi esa sutil sonrisa que no muestra los dientes, sin saberlo senti amarte y senti que tu me amabas . Me senti en el paraiso, me senti en casa, me senti feliz.
