Phi Sigma Sigma sorority celebrated their largest event of the Fall semester thus far. The Greek chapter hosted the annual Talent Show on November 14th, in the Gottesman Room.

There were different acts that ranged from singing, dancing, and a comedy skit. A majority of the contestants were from other various Greek organizations.

There were two students that showcased their talents with instruments. Alpha Chi Rho junior, Joe Kelly played a guitar and sang Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show. Rachel Weiss, a self-taught musician, sang Someone Like You by Adele while elegantly playing her ukulele. This was only her second time performing in front of a crowd.

“This is my third year performing at this event,” Kelly said. “I love to play and get the word out. I want more people to get involved and feel comfortable to participate as well.”

Students were offered the chance to display their talents on stage in a group or by flying solo. Phi Sigma Sigma spread the word to other students about the event through multiple avenues of media.

The organization spared no expense for detail for the show. They even had their own Snapchat filter specifically for the event.

“This was the first year this event wasn’t co-sponsored,” Phi Sigma Sigma Vice President, Teresa Funk said. “The fundraising chairpersons, Noelle McCullough and Olivia Incerto, put a lot of hard work in advertising and organizing this year’s Talent Show.”

The Gottesman Room was decorated to a theme comparable of American Idol. Giant star balloons were affixed to other assorted balloons and arranged into large bundles. These Helium infused arrangements were accented with long gold streamers that covered the walls and tables were decorated in the sorority’s and university’s colors of blue and gold.

Eight separate acts would perform through the night with a brief intermission for food after the first four contestants shared their musical talents.

Students had the luxury of enjoying a vast array of prepared dishes. The Phi Sigma Sigma sisters personally served various pastas, rosemary potatoes, macaroni, salad, and chicken parmigiana to each guest that lined up for food.

The Talent Show judges were a panel of three Greek Life members. Jessica Paliswiat, a Phi Sigma Sigma alumni, Rinn Stuart, a sister of Alpha Lambda Sigma, and Irwin Narayan, President of Delta Kappa Epsilon, judged each act on impressiveness, creativity, originality, and overall ‘wow’ factor.

Comedy skit performed by Courtney Johnson had the crowd rolling with laughter. She had an aggressively funny approach, which no ‘juicy’ detail was left out as she explained a Tinder date gone crazy.

However, the Gottesman Room went silent when Magen Wolmart serenaded guests with her rendition of Gravity by Sara Barielles. Everyone focused their attention to center stage as her voice covered the entire room. She would be crowned the winner by the judges at the end of show.

“This is a classic annual event,” President of Phi Sigma Sigma, Allie Rogers said. “This talent show has been going on for many years, but we had great turnout this year with students and Greek members. A lot of organizations put on these events, but we were fortunate enough tonight to have the support, which will give us momentum for next year’s talent show.”
