The UnBULLievable Race Makes a Stop at the School of Music
The UnBULLievable Race is a fun-filled race full of twists and turns.Teams of two will be given a set of clues and tasks, then sent out scouring the campus to successfully solve them. Run, walk or use the Bull Runner to explore all that is beautiful about the University of South Florida campus.
One of those clues led contestants to the School of Music, where they raced to figure out how to play “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” on the iPad App, Bebop. (Getting any flashbacks from Touch?) Once they were able to successfully play the tune, they received a sticker which indicated that they had finished the challenge.
Of course, not all students are musical savants, so the contestants had help from members of the Sigma Alpha Iota Professional Women’s Fraternity, a organization whose mission is to “give musical help and sing in the community.” It is obvious that the organization is committed to their mission. One member says, “Whenever the School of Music asks for help, as long as we can do it, we’re here.”
Kudos to all the contestants and the ladies of Sigma Alpha Iota for their part in the activity. As well as the unBULLievable Race for putting the School of Music on the map—literally!
“In this dram-edy set late in the Victorian age, a new medical device is developed to calm women with “hysteria.” It has quite a stimulating effect when used in the home offices of Dr. Givings. As he pioneers an intimate new therapy, his young wife becomes determined to investigate the experiments.”
The play opens April 11th! Make sure you come out. This is one performance you do not want to miss.
