President Morgan’s Spring concert went off without a hitch Thursday afternoon, even with Morgan’s lack of voice and the fear of being rained out.

President Morgan lost his voice the day of the event which caused him to refrain from speaking before the concert started. Regardless, the show went on even in the presence of dark clouds forming overhead.

 The Spring concert went from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. where students showcased their specific skills by performing some of the songs they have been practicing through the semester.

“I thought they did great, I was very impressed with their performances,” said Glenn Ginn, an associate professor of guitar for the School of Creative Arts. “Our semester concerts were over two or three weeks ago so we haven’t been rehearsing that much, but they did great.”

The event was held outside the newly renovated Adron Doran University Center. The university supplied food and drink for the audience with the available option to go inside ADUC for further refreshments.

 “It was really a lot of fun,” said freshman, Wyatt Melton, who performed on the drums during one of the rock ensemble performances, “It was a better turnout that what I was expecting and everyone had a good time.”

The crowd gathered on the lawn with an assortment of lawn chairs while other audience members went to sit on the low walls in and around the performance area.

 “I was really impressed with the students,” said Morgan Dotson, one of the audience members of that evening.“You could tell they really work hard at what they do.”
