SPEC CONCERTS ANNOUNCE DETAILS FOR
PENN MUSIC COLLECTIVE CONCERT 2012
PHILADELPHIA, PA (10/30/12) – SPEC Concerts is pleased to announce that its second annual Penn Music Collective Concert will take place at The Rotunda on November 15th at 7pm. Similar to last year, the show will serve as a showcase and networking opportunity for Penn musicians. Although admission will be free, donations will be collected at the door for the Vagina Monologues.
The event has been ramped up in scale and scope substantially from last year. The show will be co-sponsored not only by the Vagina Monologues but also by Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity and the Undergraduate Media & Entertainment Club (as part of their Media and Entertainment Week on campus). Additionally, the event has been moved from its old home at St. Mary’s church on Locust Walk to The Rotunda at 4014 Walnut St.
The larger venue will aim to accommodate this year’s greater expected turnout.
Campus musical acts Marigolds, Rail 3, Slow Dance Chubby, and Sarah Lindstedt will each be given 25-minute sets. After the four sets, a panel of judges selected by UME will select a winner to play a 15-minute encore. This judging panel will include professionals inside the music industry as well as music figures from Penn’s campus.
“We’re really excited about this year’s PMC Show”, said College senior and SPEC Concerts Director Dorian Mendoza on the collaborative nature of this year’s event. “It’s about fostering a more involved community of musicians and music fans on campus. There’s a lot of great talent here that flies under the radar for the most part, and we want to help expose more people to it. By collaborating with UME and Alpha Kappa Psi, we’re hoping not only to provide a showcase for some great musicians on campus, but help create networking and promotion opportunities for them”.
