Emerson students sang, danced, acted, joked, and raised their voices Friday, April 14, all the in the name of environmental awareness.
Now in its third year, Green Gala was held at the Emerson/Paramount Center and featured a wide selection of student performers and groups, as well as student films that supported the theme of unity collaboration, and eco-friendly practices. Students competed for cash prizes.
In a letter to the community, President Lee Pelton said, “[T]he gala, which occurs during the same month as national Earth Day festivities, has become a signature environmentally-focused event at Emerson. It is an opportunity to come together as a community to celebrate our planet and sustainability practices through diverse forms of artistic expressions.”
Prior to the show, audiences learned about ways to become more environmentally conscious and nibbled on vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free food.
