The University of Arkansas-Monticello choir and a magician entertained the crowd with music and magic in the John F. Gibson University Center Green Room for Family/Parent Family Appreciation Day Sept. 22.
The choir performed three pieces: “Soon-ah Will Be Done” by William Dawson, “Red, Red, Rose” by James Mulholland and the Alma Mater. Chancellor Jack Lassiter invited the families of the choir to join the choir to sing the Alma Mater.
Becky Gray said she had a good time.
“The choir was awesome,” Gray said. “UAM truly gives a family atmosphere.”
Kevin Hurley, from Pittsburgh, Pa., entertained the crowd with magic tricks and slide of hand using every day items from play dough to rope. Hurley demonstrated the secret to one magic trick at the beginning of his show.
He also asked several people
in the audience to participate. Hurley said he selected people from the
audience by looking for those having a good time or who were bored.
Hurley also used a ring, a silk handkerchief, rope, ketchup and mustard and many more items in his tricks. He finished his show by freeing himself from a straitjacket. Hurley said why people find magic interesting.
“I think people find magic and hypnosis interesting because of the mystery,” Hurley said.
