The Sonneteers Reunion Jam (1/30)

Friday, January 30th, 2015

The Sonneteers, circa 1953, performing their rendition of Lorde’s smash hit “Royals.”

If you’re a student enrolled at Skidmore College, you’ve likely heard or seen the Sonneteers say something about being the oldest club on campus, and the time has come for them to make good on that claim!

Tomorrow (Saturday) at 2pm, the Sonneteers will be holding a reunion jam in Zankel. That’s right! After filled yourself to the brim with warm chowder from Chowderfest (and had a sufficiently irresponsible number of $1 sake shots from Izumi), hightail it back to campus and catch the most euphonious reunion in the tri-state area. I’d imagine the odds of members from the club’s 1947 inception being there are pretty slim, since they’re unlikely to be in any state to travel or sing. Or be alive, for that matter. But still.

Just picture it: people who have never met each other will be making music with their voices, all under the unifying force that is membership in this singing group! Skidmore clubs really do bring people together and create bonds that transcend space and time, people. That shit’s so beautiful and cross-generational I just want to cry–and I’m pretty sure I gave up my ability to feel things the second I agreed to write for this website!

Besides, some of these ladies will be traveling from great distances (great distances being NYC, I’m assuming), so be sure and stop by and give them a warm reception back to their alma mater!

Also, the jam will run from 2:00 to 3:00, so if “Experience an a capella show sober” is on your bucket list, now’s your chance to scratch it off and reassess your life goals while you’re at it. But who says you have to experience it sober? Drink on a Saturday afternoon! I’m not your mother! I’ll buy alcohol for you if you’re a minor! Fuck, I’ll pre-game this with you! Please! Tweet at  me! I’m a lonely and jaded piece of shit! I need this!
