Tuesdays have become the new groove days at the University of the Sunshine Coast.
Some of the region’s top young musicians have been given the chance to showcase their talents to appreciative lunch-time audiences on campus as part of USC’s “Chill out Tuesday” series.
The weekly performances have been organised by USC’s Student Life and Learning.
Local duo Michael Morgan and Ayla Scalan, who perform as He Said She Said, will play from noon to 2pm tomorrow (21 August) outside Cafe J. A free barbecue will be provided by Red Frogs Australia Chaplaincy Network.
Student Equity and Diversity Officer Marjorie Blowers said she’d received plenty of positive feedback about the performances.
“A lot of the entertainers are students, so this provides some income for them,” she said.
“It also helps with student engagement and gives organisations like Red Frog an opportunity to come on campus and provide pastoral care to students who may be doing it tough and want to chat.”
Future acts will include Kimbal/Chris Flaskas on 28 August, Gian Famularo on 4 September, Mitch Barrington on 11 September and The Manks on 2 October.
