On Friday, Nov. 9, the Music @ Sterling College club held hosted their fourth annual ’20s Night event in Cornerstone.
“This originated three years ago with M@SC,” M@SC club member Alex Engelken said. “We wanted to do an event that kind of brought awareness to music history and the cool stuff from the past. We picked the ’20s because The Great Gatsby was just coming out in theaters around that time. People were like, ‘Oh, ’20s, that’s so cool.’ So, we started this event and it was a pretty big hit, so we thought we’d try to make it an annual thing. And, so far, it’s been going well.”
The event consisted of music and dancing as well as live vocal performances by Sterling College students. There were also snacks, coffee, and fake cocktails called “mocktails.” Attendees were encouraged but not required to dress up for the event.
“It always surprises me that people actually dress up. I never think that they’re going to but they do,” Engelken said. “Even though it is kind of stressful to put together an event like this, it’s really fun to see different people coming together and dancing and having fun and letting loose and not being afraid to step out of their comfort zone.”
M@SC does not have any other events planned for the remainder of the fall 2018 semester.
