Another end-of-the-year show, this one was presented by Kat Moorman. Much like a senior recital, Kat and her friends presented a variety of songs from different musicals. Kat has since graduated, but was an active member of the theatre department during her time at Eastern. You might remember her as the lead female character in Carousel. All proceeds from this concert went to charity.

It’s been a while since my last post. I’m glad to say that it’s because I’ve been so busy with new and exciting photoshoots! With that in mind, I’m going to keep my comments brief over the next few posts.
Before the school year ended, Eastern University’s Theatre Department put on one last show, featuring many never-before-seen pieces, written and directed by the students themselves. The night’s entertainment included poetry by two amazing student poets and short, interesting plays. Below I’ve included a photo from every play/poet. Enjoy!

Here are a few shots of Eastern University’s 2011 Baccalaureate ceremony. It was a beautiful event held at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church that included messages from then soon-to-be graduates Jennifer Kane and Evan Kerstetter, a musical selection by the University Choir, a special musical selection by some of the graduating music majors, an address by Professor Van Weigel, and finally a candle -lighting ceremony to close (pictured above). Congratulations Class of 2011! You will be missed!
Eastern University’s Dance calendar ended with their spectacular Spring Dance Show. I was particularly impressed by the student’s skill through different styles of dance – from an interesting tap piece set to guitar, to a beautiful and graceful ballet piece, and even to a very intense and exciting African dance piece. If you ever get the chance to see one of Eastern’s Dance productions, I would highly recommend it!
Update: If you like what I’ve been able to do with Eastern University Dance, Music, and Theatre, then you’re in luck! I have been officially contracted as Eastern’s Fine and Performing Arts photographer for the 2011-2012 academic year!

Eastern University had it’s last music concerts of the school year this past weekend. They were amazing! Some of my personal favorites: the University Band, Jazz Band, MIDI Ensemble, Eastern Strings, Orchestra, and the Choir. The Orchestra did a pretty cool original piece set to the silent film “H2O.” They had it playing live on a screen behind them while they performed. It was fantastic, even if it was 12 minutes long 🙂 You can see photos from that piece, as well as everything else on my Facebook page. Don’t forget to ‘like’ it!
Oh, and did I mention that two students got engaged on stage during the final show? That was pretty cool, too.

Here’s some photos from the Music Benefit Gala held by Eastern University at Church of the Savior in Wayne, PA. I had my debut as the photographer for the Music Department at last year’s Gala and this year I got to use my brand new Canon 7D camera for the first time! This is always an excellent show, highlighting the talent of Eastern’s music faculty. The highlight of the show is always the piano quartet, which is usually done by pairing these pianist on two pianos. This year they stepped it up and brought in two extra pianos just for them. Four pianos, one piece (see above). How fun!

These are a few photos from Beyond Existence at Eastern University last year. Its amazing what a 50mm prime lens can do when you have concert lighting and a fog machine. Check it out…
On a similar note, I suggested to the powers that be that they talk to Jars of Clay about letting me photograph them for free at their event on campus this year. He laughed and said it sounded like a good idea. I’m pretty sure he thought I was joking though. Oh well.
