Don't Miss HWS Chorale and Cantori's Spring Concert
HWS Daily Update

Hobart and William Smith Colleges Chorale and Cantori will be performing this week and weekend, and it's going to be lit. The two groups, under the direction of the infamous Bob Cowles, have been working their butts off this semester, and it has undoubtably paid off. They recently returned from their tour in Philadelphia, which was highly praised by audiences which contained HWS Chorale alumni as well as the poet and composer of one of the pieces performed by the group. Rumor has it that this is one of the best groups of Chorale and Cantori singers that HWS has seen in years, so you do not want to miss this concert.

The groups will be performing their set from tour, and it is straight fire. Prepare to be blown away by the choirs' masterful performances of songs in an impressive number of languages, including (but not limited to) Latin, French, Finnish, and Estonian. There will also be several beautiful pieces in English, so don't worry about not being able to understand anything. Additionally, the program will have translations of every foreign language song, so you can keep up.

The set will include a little bit of everything, so all audiences will be pleased. For example, some pieces boast intense piano accompaniment, while others are completely acappella. Some are slow melodies that may make you shed a tear, and others will have you grinning from ear to ear (no rhyme intended). Cantori will also be performing a newly commissioned work by Giselle Wires that pays homage to our very own Seneca Lake. This is entertainment in its purest form, people.

Even if you are not sure that a choir concert is really your scene, you have a lot to gain from going. Listening to live singing is great for your mental health, as a stress-reliever and mood-booster. The concert will also give you a chance to see a performance in Froelich Hall in the brand new Gearan Center for the Performing Arts, if you haven't gotten the chance to yet. The acoustics are really top notch in there. If nothing else, just go to support your peers. They've worked hard, and they deserve your love and support.

There will be three concerts, so you have no excuse not to be able to make it. You could even go all three nights if you just can't get enough of those sick choir jams. Wednesday, April 20 at 8:00 pm is your first chance to catch the best show in town. Saturday, April 23 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, April 24 at 7:00 pm are your second and third opportunities. Oh, and did I mention that it's free? Be there or be square. You won't regret it.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
