Unique artists perform at Open Mic Night

Several artists performed at the M Lounge in Hughes-Trigg Thursday evening during Open Mic Night.

Open Mic Night, an event public to all SMU students, gives individuals the chance to display their talent on stage. Program Council and the Talent Recruitment and Entertainment Agency (TREAT) joined efforts to organize the weekly event.

“It’s a place for students to just have fun and perform,” Chris Escarfullery, the vice-president of operations, said. Escarfullery was the host and announcer for the night.

Students of all majors got the chance to perform. The evening brought a variety of performances ranging from rap and monologue to magic tricks and stand-up comedy.

“We welcome all SMU-based talent to come out,” Escarfullery said.

Several students clapped and cheered for their fellow friends on stage.

Synthia Grace, SMU freshman, sang “Just Breathe” by Anna Nalick.

“This is my third time coming out to the event,” Grace said. “It’s just really fun.”

Grace is pursuing a degree in theater at SMU and has been playing the guitar for two years.

She was one of many SMU students who came out to perform.

Open Mic Night also hosts special performances and headline acts.

Open Mic Night takes place every other Thursday at 9 p.m. The event welcomes all students to come out perform, meet new people and have a good time.
