Students, faculty, and family members gathered around candle-lit tables Feb 11-12 while enjoying refreshments and pie as they watched Saint Mary’s University students put on a coffee-house style performance.
Fireside, sponsored by the sisters of Sigma Alpha Iota, annually plays to a full audience in the Common Room in Saint Mary’s Hall. The show consisted of 19 acts, each performer putting their own twist on songs such as “Your Love is my Drug” by Ke$ha and even “Quit Playing Games with My Heart” by the Backstreet Boys. Katie Keck and Chad Divine, the emcees for the show, were not only hilarious, but also had a few musical acts up their sleeves.
The show was run and performed entirely by students. The show is a great fundraiser for the female fraternity and is a visible demonstration of the hard work and effort singers, performers and musicians put into the show.
