Music all Around You
There is music happening all around us. Just at Cal State Long Beach, there is a ton of music going on all the time. There are concerts of popular music to look for near the University Student Unions on some days. I have found that these concerts are mostly on Wednesdays and the bands are usually pretty good. In the music department, there are concerts going on almost every weekend. The Carpenter Center has events every weekend and include other forms of art other than music as well. There are student events on most weekends too; especially with that it is now recital season. This means that a lot of music majors are required to put on recitals. They are free so this is a great chance to get to know some fellow students and support your peers. This Saturday, there is a fusion concert that includes both the dance and music department which should be interesting. Lastly, this Saturday night is the vocal jazz concert which features Pacific Standard Time and Jazz n' Tonic. Both these groups are really great this year and this is not a concert to miss. Most events can be found on the bulletin boards in the music department. Along with the opera scenes, the art shows, and the dance concerts, there is so much art being showcased at your school and it's a waste to miss it. Go check some out and explore a little more of what your college has to offer.
