From student teaching to teaching students


Rivera (‘23) teaches music at a K-8 school in Chicago and manages 11 classes. Currently, she teaches general music, but hopes to branch out by teaching choir, private lessons and organizing ensembles in the future. 


“Everybody” takes the stage


The local theater scene buzzed with excitement as “Everybody,” the thought-provoking and innovative play by Braden Jacobs-Jenkins, took the spotlight. This modern rendition of the contemporary theatrical masterpiece has historically captivated audiences with its unique perspective on life, death and the human experience. “Everybody” is a modern adaptation of the 15th-century morality play, “Everyman.” It invited theatergoers on an introspective journey that explores the fundamental questions of existence. Directed by Tracy Manning, artistic director of theatre arts, audiences could expect three evenings full of unique storytelling and powerful performances.


Mainstage entertains campus with music-oriented events


What’s not to love about music and dance? The sounds that fly across the audience to give you a taste of life’s nightly flavors, and our expression of the passion for life is the dance of the moment.  Fortunately, our university has the opportunity to relish these special events, and who does it have to thank? Taylor’s Mainstage!
