End-of-the-Year Concerts

Spring has finally sprung in Poughkeepsie, resulting in a marked increase of blankets on the quad, papers to fret about, and, of course, final concerts. In the week before exams, Vassar students can count on a study break nearly every evening in which one of the many on-campus a cappella groups will perform their final concerts of the semester. On the last day of classes, May 5, students can celebrate with The Vastards, who will perform their final concert that evening. Vassar’s very own Broadway A Cappella group will present their final showing on May 7th, followed by both Measure 4 Measure (pictured) and Matthew’s Minstrels concerts on May 8th. The next night, May 9th, will feature the Vassar Devils’ final show, and on May 10th, the Night Owls will perform. The a cappella marathon concludes with AirCappella, whose whistling musical stylings will be showcased in their last show of the semester on May 11th.

And for those looking for a laugh, many of Vassar’s comedy groups are also concluding the semester with a final performance. Happily Ever Laughter, The Limit, and No Offense, three sketch comedy groups, will all perform on the night of May 1. Students can also look forward to a whole 24 hours of fun when Vassar Improv presents its annual 24 Hour Improv Marathon, performing non-stop in the Retreat from 9:00 p.m. on May 8 to 9:00 p.m. on May 9.
