On Friday, contestants for Spring Sing 2017 will take the stage of Pauley Pavilion. The annual event brings together music, rap, dance and comedy performances into one evening.
Ashley Cleveland stepped slowly onto a dark stage. Her veil swirled around her as she walked, and a recording of Richard Burton saying, “Was this the face that launched a thousand ships?” played in the background.
The director raised his arms and began to conduct, and the rich sound of 125 students playing brass, woodwinds and percussion filled the auditorium. David Pardess sat in the front row at the first UCLA marching band practice, playing his piccolo and feeling excitement and anticipation for the rest of the 1967 season.
Large white letters stood out against the black and white image of a smiling woman, spelling “confianza sobre violencia” (confidence over violence).
The image fades away on Peace Over Violence’s website homepage, replaced with the scene of a smiling man and woman, with the words “friendship over violence” written across their embracing arms.
Actors in bright Bavarian dress danced across the stage, lightly stepping on and off three durable, brown wooden barrels.
Jeanne Schniedewind inhaled sharply when the actors tossed two of her handcrafted kegs back and forth, thinking of the time and effort it would take to fix them if they broke.
Christina Rice, Janina Lamoglia and Kailyn Glass gathered around their Midvale Avenue apartment’s dining room table in their pajamas. The trio spoke into the microphones set up on the table, recording their discussion on jealous friends and roommate drama for the next episode of their podcast “Actually Adultish.”
Rice, a fourth-year psychology student, began listening to podcasts in August 2015.
Stephen Kooshian brought the cool glass of beer to his lips while sitting in the noisy Manhattan Beach bar. The Sierra Nevada Pale Ale washed over his tastebuds, and Kooshian was shocked beer could taste so fresh.
Nolan Isozaki clung to the side of a mountain, watching stones dislodged by his backpack tumble down 14,000 feet to the ground. Freezing wind whipped around him as the sun’s light faded over the Rocky Mountains, muffling the warning shouts of his friends in the valley below.
