In previous years, the spring concert has been a collaborative event between Millersville’s various student organizations. This year, there is a new structure in place for students to get more involved in the concert planning process.
David Loconsole, Student Senate Liaison to the Concert Committee, discusses the new structure, “I, along with Kelly Duncan, the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership (CSIL) advisor, are in charge of forming a student-run concert committee. Once the committee is formed, and chairs of specific duties are chosen, we will serve as advisors to the students running the committee.”
Student Senate made the decision to change the structure to allow for students not involved in student organizations a chance to help plan and run the concert, as well as to foster more opinion from the student body.
The genre, and eventually, the artist, will be chosen by the committee after gaining feedback from the student body on what they would like to see. “If students would like to be a part of the new Spring Concert Committee, all they have to do is fill out an application that they can get from the CSIL Office, located in room 118 of the SMC. After filling out the application, students need to return it to the CSIL Office,” said Loconsole. Applications will also be accepted at the first general meeting of the Spring Concert Committee, which will be held on Thursday, November 8, at 5 p.m. in SMC room 18.
The spring concert will take place on Friday, April 26, 2013 in Pucillo Gymnasium.
