On Saturday March 31st, The Capcityhiphop media team got to attend The Illustrious: Music & Dance Showcase at uOttawa, in the 90U Lounge. The night was packed with performances as musicians and dancers took the stage to perform their acts. There was also food being sold at this event, by girls of the Alpha Phi Lambda Sorority with the funds from the event going to the Free The Children Charity to help build a school in Lye, India.
Jarett Lopez, Founder & Executive Director Of Aficionado Studios & The Illustrious: Music & Dance showcase, got to tell us a little more about the showcase and why it started.
“The Illustrious: Music & Dance Showcase was created to give talented students a chance to gain valuable performance experience. A vital part of improving one’s craft is being able to present it for others to enjoy, appreciate and critique. Many new artists have little or no opportunity to perform on big stages or for large crowds, Illustrious provides that chance and helps talent students become great performers.”
