But how does one put on such a productive and successful concert? It all starts with careful planning, amazing and generous musicians, and a productive E-Board. Beginning with some careful planning, one must first reserve the space. Ithaca College is great in allowing students easy access to booking various event spaces. With the space booked, the next step was to find musicians willing to play. Of course, the Ithaca College School of Music offers a plethora of available musicians to ask; however, the community of Ithaca has plenty to offer as well. The Jubilee Singers pictured above were generous enough to take time out of their evenings and make the trek up to South Hill for a wonderful night. After some excessive promotion and beforehand organization, the concert eventually ran itself. Last night was a perfect example of how lucky and fortunate we are to have the resources to produce such a wonderful evening of music for an even greater cause!
