  • Fellow Spotlight- Clara Davison

    12/5/17 by Staff

    The first Classical Music Rave in North America occurred at Trism last week, and the event was put on by BLF Class of 19’s very own Clara Davison and her student organization, CELLOHIO. The rave, known as ‘Party Arty’, was DJed by Mr. Van Walsh who traveled all the way from Amsterdam. It also consisted of performances by CELLOHIO, Sweet Tooth and Xioma. Mr. Van Walsh takes classical music and transforms it in arty settings, allowing for a relaxed structure in comparison to a traditional classical music concert. The rave projects classical music infused with dance music and EDM for all to enjoy. Mr. Van Walsh has been arranging raves internationally since 2013 in locations including Australia, Brazil, Belgium and Turkey with audiences of up to 1,500.
