Zug Memorial Hall, the oldest building on the E-town college campus, houses many campus offices.
Anchor: I’m outside Zug Memorial Hall. This is a place that house Elizabethtown College’s business office, Hess gallery, and financial aid department; but in the basement, few people have found that there’s a vibrant community.
The basement houses the college music department. In addition to music studies, classrooms can also be used by the various music clubs, specifically the Bachelor of Arts in Music Organization, BAMO for short. BAMO has garnered quite the campus fanbase over the years. I sat down with the club president, Steven Roldan, to learn about BAMO’s mission.
Steven Roldan, president: Well, BAMO’s mission is to spread music and provide opportunities for musicians on campus to execute music.
BAMO has an open-door policy, meaning students of any major can join.
Noah Abbe, secretariat: It used to be that we would just do BAMO for music people, but now it’s anyone who does music.
The club is currently rehearsing for their Night in the City concert, scheduled on March 28th.
Roldan: Also, we go out into the community and we try and either play music people. Maybe for ourselves or maybe for other people. And, we also just want to have all the memes.
