This year, Alpha Psi Omega has the honor to fundraise for the National Asian Artists Project, a non-profit organization seeking to showcase the work of artists of Asian descent. Not only will this be a celebration of the wonderful BIPOC artists, it will also be the organization's off campus debut. It is going to be two delightful nights of story telling, so come support the cause and cheer on the artists of the Manhattan School of Music!

Featuring GALVIN YUAN - Director, MARINE TAMADA-WU - Music Director/Assistant Director and Enrique Brown - Faculty Advisor

Alpha Psi Omega is a National Theatre Honor Society for participants in collegiate theatre, and with over 600 casts, it is the largest national Honor Society in America. Here at the Manhattan School of Music, our chapter of Alpha Psi Omega is Mu Sigma Mu, where we put on student run musicals, plays, cabarets, and dance shows, giving students more opportunities to perform during the school year. They also coordinate events, fundraisers, and outings for students to create a community within the institution at the Manhattan School of Music. The student run organization is led by Galvin Yuan (President), Abbs Lyman (Vice President), Mallorie Mendoza (Secretary), Josephine McGehee (Business Manager), Benjamin Hahn (Social Media Manager), and with the guidance of our faculty advisor Enrique Brown.

CHAD WOODARD
Dr. Chad, More, Again



7:00pm / Tickets begin at $15

The only thing better than "story time with Dr. Chad," is when it is interrupted by some singing! An eclectic mix of songs across genres, some making good sense and some that we'll all just get through together... Don't worry though - he get's more talented after each drink (you have).

CHAD WOODARD moved to NYC in 2002 to be a big Broadway star, and after waiting tables for a few years instead, trashed that idea. Instead he sang his way through a couple of doctorate degrees, became an entrepreneur and professor, and now just enjoys making a fool of himself to raise money for charities and such. But don't worry, he has won at least 2 pretty intense karaoke competitions in the past decade, so he still thinks he's got the goods.
