QCC ASAP Holiday Open Mic
On December 6 2010, Queensborough Community College ASAP staff and students held their third annual Holiday Open Mic event. Performances included dancing, guitar playing, singing, poetry, and a comedic skit. Student Manager Danielle Izzo, our Resident Poet, joined in the festivities with a poem of her own, “Outlaw.” Here are a few reactions from performers and guests:
"Overall good experience…it makes people break out of their shell and show who they are in a room full of great people. The atmosphere was great, I felt good performing. Thank you for the open mic I loved it and the food was great!!" :)
"I truly enjoyed the Open Mic event; it was an amazing experience for me. Food was amazing and being around ALL ASAP students was FUN. I LOVE ASAP!"
"I had a great time…it was great to perform something I wrote myself for everyone. Hopefully next time I won't be as nervous."
"I enjoyed the open mic night. Everyone that performed gave it their all and drew the crowd in with amazement. Wish I could have contributed like that. I want to thank ASAP for the food, entertainment, and gift. Merry Christmas!"
"With the stress of all my classes and the finals approaching, I felt the ASAP Open Mic event was a nice down time moment to relax and enjoy the show."
"I loved the ASAP Open Mic! Each performer portrayed real talent and it's enjoyable to watch the artistic side to the folks you interact with every day."
"The last open mic was a blast, fun experience to see fellow ASAP students and staff perform. Can't wait for the next one... thank you ASAP ."
The festivities closed with a delicious dinner, and guests parted with a gift bag.
