Likely it's a table in the MSC, an info session with free pizza or participating in an org fair. Those events are part of the process, but not the most important part.

Sister Species featuring Spencer Douglas

Thursday, April 8
8:00pm - 10:00pm
Great Hall, MSC
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

As an accordionist and songwriter, Emily Kastrul (Betazoid, Hazel Ra) has led chamber-pop septet Sister Species since 2011: a band known for their thoughtful, dynamic arrangements and opulent three-part trumpet harmonies. Kastrul’s intimate and intricate songwriting spans from bleak pop anthems about the inevitable heat death of the universe to drone songs about loss and cottonwood trees.

Performing solo, Kastrul will share stripped-down versions of songs from Sister Species' two most recent records. In addition, she will share new, unreleased works and experimental improved soundscapes.

We're excited to welcome Spencer Douglas back to campus as our opener!

From a naïve 14-year-old eager to become a musician, Spencer has evolved into a moderately experienced 17-year-old musician, still eager to learn and striving for continued musical growth. “Princess Charming,” the debut EP of Spencer Douglas, is the first chapter in a young singer-songwriter's journey to share his personal voice. Taking influences from multiple styles, each song is an exploration and interpretation of relationships and personal reflections. The EP features a range of reflective lyrics, upbeat instrumentation and catchy melodies composed, arranged and recorded by the teen when he was 15. He plans to continue his musical journey and have some fun along the way.

UW-Stout COVID Update

Q.    Do I still need to wear a mask on campus, since Governor Evers’ Face Covering mandate has been overturned?

A. Yes, masks are still required on campus. Our health and safety measures are not dependent upon the Governor’s Executive orders. The university’s mask order is available online.

A. No. If you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and you've been exposed to someone who is sick, the CDC now says you no longer need to quarantine. Fully vaccinated means that at least two weeks have passed since you've received the second dose of a two-dose vaccine, or one dose of a single dose vaccine.

A. Information on vaccine availability and eligibility is available online.
