Election Night Results Watch
This year may not be one of “change” and “hope,” but that doesn’t mean that Georgetown students won’t be paying attention to the polls this Tuesday, November 3rd. If you’re one of those very few political people on campus, there will luckily be a place to watch the results from Virginia, New Jersey, Maine, NY-23, and more come in all night long. You can take part in Leavey’s Sellinger Lounge at 7:00 p.m.; food will be provided.
The Georgetown Writers Series Presents…
Georgetown English professor, screenwriter, and novelist Jennifer Natalya Fink will be speaking on “Revisions and Other Fictions” on Wednesday November 4th, from 9:20 to 10:00 a.m. in 390 Walsh. So come see the Dana Award winner and celebrated author of the 2004 book Burn; this event is open to the public!
Jesu, meine freude
As part of its preparations for the ensemble’s fall concert, the Georgetown University Concert Choir will be welcoming Dr. J. Reilly Lewis to conduct a workshop on J.S. Bach’s motet “Jesu, meine freude.” This piece will be showcased in the ensemble’s fall program, “Divine Image.”
Lewis is internationally recognized as a leading specialist on Baroque music, particularly J.S. Bach, so this should prove interesting. Lewis is the founder and music director of the Washington Bach Consort and the music director of the Cathedral Choral Society, but prior to that he earned degrees from Oberlin and Juilliard before studying the piano music of Bach in Germany. The event will take place this Wednesday from 6:10 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Dahlgren Chapel and is free to attend.
This Friday, when you’re winding down at the week’s end, maybe you’d rather spend sometime playing Guitar Hero, Wii Sports, DDR, and other games instead of scouring the streets for the hippest party. This party will be filled with Nintendo Wii games of all sorts, food, music, and prizes for the top scorers on DDR, Rock Band, and Guitar Hero. So come out from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and do a little boxing, give your rock star persona a few minutes to shine, and get your dance on.
