Student Afternoon Recital: Music Bldg., Rm 818

The Student Afternoon Recital is considered to be a “talent showcase” for our dedicated music students at Shoreline Community College. This is their time to shine in the spotlight and to have an opportunity to perform in front of their peers.

Students are chosen by their instructors to perform at the recital. The selection criteria requires students to have been taking private lessons and/or to have been involved in a music ensemble throughout the quarter. This is an invaluable experience for students to build confidence musically through focused preparation, and the opportunity to perform in front of an audience helps them develop their stage presence. Everyone is welcome to attend this free concert in the Music Building in Room #818.

There’s liver for dinner, holes in his shoes, and a war on the horizon, but 15-year-old Eugene Jerome would rather think about baseball…and girls. Surrounded by his overworked mother and father, his “worldly” older brother, his aunt, and two cousins, Eugene has plenty of material for his future career as a writer. This coming-of-age story is an affectionate, entertaining lesson in overcoming hard times with warmth and humor.

Brighton Beach Memoirs is the first installment in Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical Eugene Jerome trilogy (which includes the plays Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound) and is one of America’s most cherished plays. The New York Daily News called the original New York production “…in many respects Neil Simon’s funniest, richest, and consequently the most affecting of his plays”, and elevated Simon into the pantheon of great American playwrights.

Sat., Dec. 2

Women’s Basketball at home: Gym, 3000 Bldg.

Come cheer on our Phins as they take on Big Bend College at home. #GoPhins

Dear Student,

As our families prepare for Thanksgiving, I am grateful for so many things. I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for the supportive campus community that we share. From our hardworking students who have entrusted Shoreline to help them fulfill their dreams, to our dedicated faculty and staff who demonstrate a steadfast commitment to students, our College is so fortunate.

As we enjoy the long Thanksgiving weekend, let us remember each of us makes a difference in shaping Shoreline’s preferred future and together our collective efforts lead to great accomplishments for our students. I wish each of you a restful and joyful Thanksgiving.

With warm regards,

Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
