Students gather and express themselves

Everyone sat in the dark eyes aglow as they watched fellow students showcase their art whether it was in the form of a poem, video, or live performance.

Philosophy Professor Melanie McQuitty set up the Philosopher’s Cabaret tonight in the Great Hall.

McQuitty set it up as a way to, “Bring the students together as a community.”

The entire affair was very respectful of every individual’s creativity and perspective.  The theme of the night was perspective, so the art that was showcased focused on it.

McQuitty believes that philosophy and art are the two most important ideas in academia, which is why she wanted to bring them together in the Philosopher’s Cabaret.

Bill McGarry spoke tonight coinciding with a video he had made; his presentation was about visual perspective.  He spoke about the way your mind adjusts the things you see, to fit into your perception of the way the world is and how that may not be reality.

McGarry seemed nervous but eager and passionate about philosophy.  It might be due to his professor McQuitty, who excitedly flitted around the room encouraging performers and presenters.

“Doctor McQuitty is excellent,” said McGarry with a smile.

It is hard to disagree, while she speaks you can hear the passion she has for her students and her role as a teacher and leader.  The fact that she sets up the Cabare t for all students is a testament to this.

Maria Nunez-Romero, an ex-philosophy major helped set up for the gathering.  Romero was disappointed
at the turn out, compared to the last Cabaret she didn’t think it was great.  But she still enjoyed the performances.

“I absolutely love Linda,” said Romero about one of the singers who had a unique, melodic voice and sang songs from the 1920’s.

Linda Fitak, was also wearing a dress from the 1920’s.  She sang “What Wouldn’t I Do For That Man,” and “Wild Women Don’t Have The Blues.”  The songs fit her voice and the solo guitar and bass used to play them made a good team.

Discussions abounded after the show ended.  Songs played on a Mac laptop and a large spread of food was set out.  They had everything from ordered pizza to homemade cookies, chicken pot stickers to cheese and grapes.

The scene was perfect for those passionate about philosophy and art to open up and talk, and also meet people with similar interests.  McQuitty truly did set up a place where students can come together as a community, with philosophy and art at the heart of it all.
