Nido Palooza is an event designed to showcase the many artistic talents of our students. Even though the event may be centralized around music, there will also be a theme to inspire the students involved in the production of the event, especially in the decoration of the rooms. The entire evening is run by the students and for the students. From the decoration of each venue to the performers and sound, everything is student-driven with the support of the art department. Throughout the night, performances will be held in a variety of venues: a grand rock/pop venue, a jazz/classical stage, and an acoustic music lounge. All performance venues will be run at the same time, similar to what is seen in other well-known events.
