World renowned Italian pianist Maurizio Barboro to perform at Wake Forest. Performance will include masterpieces from the music repertory of composers: Schumann, Chopin, Debussy, Liszt.
Project Pumpkin – Wednesday, October 29 at 3 pm on the Quad. Project Pumpkin, an event sponsored by the Volunteer Service Corps, is an annual service event at Wake Forest University that was started in 1988 to bring together the campus and Winston-Salem communities. Each year more than 1,000 children from local agencies are escorted to the Reynolda campus where students and faculty combine to provide a safe environment for trick-or-treating, carnival games, clowns, and entertainment.
The LGBTQ Community Forum – Thursday, October 30th from 4-6 pm in Annenberg Forum, Carswell Hall. Hosted by the President’s Commission on LGBTQ Affairs, this event is an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff at Wake Forest to share their experiences as LGBTQ people or allies. Members of the President’s Commission on LGBTQ Affairs will be on hand to listen to feedback and gain a richer understanding of the climate for LGBTQ individuals on campus. Commission chair and Vice President for Campus Life Penny Rue will moderate the event. All community members, including straight allies, are welcome to attend. The forum will be followed by a reception with Commission members.
Frightfest: Haunted Barn – Thursday, October 30 from 8:00 pm to 12:00 am at The Barn. Get your scares in early the night before Halloween. Food, haunted trails, and scary movies await you at the Haunted Barn.
Midnight-20th Annual Halloween Orchestra Concert- Friday, October 31 at 11:59 pm, Scales Fine Arts Center, Brendle Recital Hall. David Hagy, conductor. New freshmen and returning upper-classmen will find new forays into flights of fearful and fateful fancy that will haunt the entire Halloween audience. Faculty will plan a plot the students know nothing about while students prepare tricks the faculty know nothing about, all while performing haunting, comedic, and triumphant music. It is rumored that time-travel will be a part of this year’s plot! Come join in the hijinks!
As always, this is by no means an exhaustive list – just a smattering of things to come. Your students should check out the Events Calendar to see all the activities (lectures, athletics, volunteer activities, spiritual, Student Union and more) that take place each week.
