Community School of Music and Arts works to continue educating youth

By | Oct 2, 2009

A block down from The Commons, a tall, white building stands, seemingly quiet and plain — only the green awnings above the doors that read “Community School of Music and Arts” give any indication of the building’s creativity. Inside, the school is alive with the thrill of learning and imagination, as classes for music, dance…


Students showcase talents at Open Mic Night

By | Sep 28, 2009

By 9 p.m. on most nights, IC Square is a quiet place — only a few students pass through the room or meet in small groups to study. Last night, the room was alive with chatter, laughter, and music as bands, comedians and solo- singers amused the crowd. Open mic night, organized and produced by…


Change in rock climbing wall hours overcrowds Fitness Center

By | Sep 25, 2009

Correction: Rock climbing passes are $30 per semester not $15. Fingers shaking and legs extended, a student stretches his arm up to grab the next blue stone on the rock climbing wall. His hand grips the piece as his core tightens, and he thrusts his body upwards. He reaches closer to the top of the…

Water sloshes backstage at the Hangar Theatre as actors’ and crew members’ hurried feet move across the flooded floor.

Art explores fashion in society

By | Sep 11, 2009

Walking into the Handwerker Gallery, observers are bombarded by the neon orange background of the painting “Art Department.” The painting is a smattering of stereotypical artist characters sitting in groups. A man dressed in all black, presumed to be a French artist, rests idly on a chair deep in thought. In the corner, a group…

Classic fairy tale retains original vision at Ithaca Ballet

By | Apr 23, 2009

In a glowing, decadent ballroom, men and women twirl around the room, laughing and chatting to each other. A prince stands, searching the crowd for the beautiful woman he had met earlier that day.

Around midnight in Collegetown, the streets come alive. As crowds fill the streets, one building lures the late-night wanderers to its doors. Built with state-of-the-art equipment and amenities, the Green Café seems to glitter as lights shine on the steel tables and chairs. Flat-screen TVs hang on the walls, some showing the menu items for…


Dancers look for innovation in newest company

By | Apr 2, 2009

The crashing and harsh lyrics of “Pardon Me” by Incubus clash with the graceful twirls of four girls dancing in a Dillingham studio. They arch their backs and elegantly extend their arms toward the ceiling, as the artful poise of ballet mixes with the thundering guitar of the alternative-rock song. As the girls of the…


Coed a cappella group streams individual style with harmony

By | Mar 19, 2009

Coldplay, Pink, Radiohead, The Thief and Zox are not the typical composers for songs sung by an a cappella group. Jeans, untucked dress shirts, plaid skirts and individual styles are not the typical outfits for performers in a concert. But Ithaca College’s a cappella group Voicestream has never followed the classic conventions of what is…
