Small Island Big Song Dinner and Screening

Small Island Big Song performance singer

In March, Culinary Services is partnering with the Wharton Center for Performing Arts to showcase Small Island Big Song, a multi-platform project uniting the seafaring cultures of the Pacific and Indian Oceans through songs. This contemporary and relevant musical statement comes from a region that’s at the frontline of the Climate Crisis.

Students and guests are invited to attend a special dinner at The Edge at Akers on Monday, March 18, from 4:30-9 p.m., and a short film screening of "Small Island Big Song: An Oceanic Songline" at 6 p.m. in the Akers Auditorium. We are offering the themed dinner menu to coordinate with the performance.

Those who attend the short screening at Akers will also have a chance to win two tickets to the full performance on Thursday, March 21, at 7:30 p.m. at the Wharton Center!
