Each month on Clewell patio Salem College students from all disciplines showcase their talents at Incunabula’s Open Mic Night. Senior Rebekah Hensley is one of those students. For October, she performed her own original poem entitled “The Angel’s Fall.”
“I’m most looking forward to performing this poem because it explores a topic perfect for Halloween and it also allows me to explore writing subject matter that may be a little darker,” Hensley said about her poem.
Junior Molly Blanchard often sings and plays guitar at Open Mic Nights. Molly is considering performing “Breakeven” by The Script for November’s event, but the decision is not set in stone.
“At this point in time I have no clue what I am going to perform. I rarely do until about two days before. I enjoy the rush of sharing something I am passionate about. I love Open Mic Night because of the diversity of the performances and how everyone is so supportive of everyone else,” Blanchard said.
Sophomore Erin Wertz will also be performing alongside Blanchard.
When asked about what she liked about Open Mic Night, Wertz said, “I most enjoy the community aspect of Open Mic. I love how all of Salem gets together as a family and shares bits and pieces of themselves with everyone. It’s a time we really share our hearts and who we are.”
