This War Requiem is the experience through Benjamin Britten’s eyes of two world wars through powerful music. The performance is conducted by Marin Alsop and preformed by the Peabody’s Children Chorus. It’s a part of the University of Maryland’s concert choir and is sure to provoke deep emotions and bring you back into a different time. War Requiem features two orchestras, two choruses and a number of show stopping soloists as we journey alongside Britten in his musical masterpiece.

As the icy Baltimore breeze begins its annual decent upon the Loyola campus, students commence a search for all things warm and toasty. They flock to the shelter of indoor heating and the comfort of a grande peppermint mocha.

Glass Animals EP
Harvest Record’s recording artist, released their 4 track self titled EP, “Glass Animals.” The album has a haunting/spacey sound. The indie pop band makes use of synthesizers and artificial sounds to bring each songs to life. Dave Barley’s voice definitely keeps the listener captured and wanting to listen more and more. The album is very innovative and captures the essence of who Glass Animals are and is a great indicator of what’s to come from them in the future.

When we got to the National Student Electronic Media Convention in San Antonio, they had all these trophies lying around messing up the place. It seemed a shame to mess up a nice looking city like San Antonio, and since we care about that kind of stuff, we helped make it nice and neat. Taking the trophies back to Baltimore seemed the best plan.
