The recently dedicated Green Center for the Performing Arts will be lively with activity as the DePauw Symphony Orchestra, the DePauw Opera Art Attack Cello.jpgTheatre, and many other student organizations, honorary societies, sororities, fraternities, and talented individuals gather to host the fun-filled afternoon. Hands-on crafts will be offered throughout the afternoon including mask making, giant paint-by-number, paper cranes for peace, egg carton insects, make-your-own instrument, and an environmental sculpture activity,

Attendees will be invited to performances beginning at 1 p.m. offered by belly dance troupe Sahara Moon, the singers of DePauw Capella, the DePauw Gospel Choir, the DePauw Pep Band, the DePauw Theatre troupe unIMPROVable, and the DePauw Orchestra. Also planned are a poetry workshop, a participatory drum circle, and the ever-popular musical petting zoo.
