Brown Chorus Presents: Rachmaninoff Vespers
Cathedral of Saints Peter & Paul (directions here)
free with Brown or RISD ID
The Vespers, also known as the “All-Night Vigil,” are based on chants from an ancient Russian Orthodox ceremony. Conductor Louis Frederick Jodry told The Herald that the chorus’s opening fall performance will give listeners “a little glimpse of the eternal” — something no enlightenment-seeker can afford to miss.
Brown United Against Infectious Diseases “Rent” screening and bake sale
“Rent” is one of those rare musicals that is just as good on film as on stage, and will appeal to non-theatergoers. It also shares perspectives on a problem that has recently peaked locally. Money from the bake sale will contribute to UAID’s trip to the Philippines for HIV/AIDS relief.
10 pm-2 am
King house (Hope & Benevolent)
$3 admission / $1 drinks
Party like it’s 2012 with live music by Ragnarock and DJ Spoletto. And no need to fret over the unicorn in the lounge. She’s friendly.
Or if you’d rather stay in and read (and perhaps recover from SPG) than party, that’s A-OK: The first Saturday of every November is Book Lovers Day.
