On Monday, May 8, Eastside Music school’s monthly Open Mic Night took place at it’s new home – The Vortex. The venue, owned by local artists, set the tone for the night with string lights, greenery and warm lighting. The night kicked off with Studio Manager Cameron Belcher’s redition of “Be Our Guest,” a number from the classic Beauty and the Beast, to get the energy up. The performers included first timers, veterans, loved ones and even spectators who heard the sound and wandered toward the stage. Overall, it was a great way to kickoff the month and showcase a preview of the talented students our school has to offer. See you next month!
