The sixth annual SU Arts Festival will take place on Saturday, April 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Campus Center and on the Academic Mall. The festival is hosted by Delta Omicron, the professional music fraternity, and is free and open to the public.

The festival is an opportunity for Southwestern students to share their passion for the arts with the campus community, as well as local youth and their families. It embraces every aspect of the arts, offering educational experiences, arts and crafts booths, an instrument petting zoo, live performances by local youth and Southwestern students, Yoga on the Lawn, Zumba, improvisation troupe performances, and a cooking demonstration. A special guest ensemble, Mariachi Nuevo Estilo A.D.M., will perform at 11:30 a.m.

“By bringing together the local area population and the campus, we as a whole have the opportunity to interact with the arts in ways that positively reinforce expression, creativity and open-mindedness,” said festival organizer Stacie Glowka.

Delta Omicron also is holding a silent auction to benefit Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.
