The student concert will occur on April 3rd.

University Union has announced its first-ever all-student concert Saturday, April 3. The concert will consist of two parts: the “Early Show” starting at 5:30 p.m. and the “Late Show” at 8:30 p.m. The event will be open to both Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF students, faculty and staff in Goldstein Auditorium.

The “Early Show” performers include BRI, Malique Lewis, and jewisvuitton. As for the “Late Show,” Anish Ghosh and The Whether Channel will take the stage. This concert includes a wide array of styles ranging from rap to indie, ensuring there will be something for everyone.

Bri Gilyard, also known as BRI, is a music industry major, as well as a member of SU Groovestand, an A Capella group on campus, and the JCM jazz ensemble. She’s been singing since she was young but this will be her first solo live show performance.

Malique Lewis is a rapper from Miami who looks to inspire others and create songs that tell stories. Earlier this year, he released his latest song “Legally” to encourage others to follow the right path in life. His music can be found on Apple Music and Spotify.

SU junior Jason Telese, better known as jewishvuitton, released his most recent song “let me go (prod. lileffort)” on March 4. His sound is a combination of electric and pop and his music can be found on Soundcloud.

Anish Ghosh, a SU junior, was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement. He grew up playing rock music but now loves to blur the lines between genres to create his own unique sound. His music can be found on Apple Music and Spotify.

The Whether Channel consists of Andre Garces, Rory Stanley, Max Marcy and Jimmy Unanue who got together as a joke freshman year, but had too much fun working together to stop. The self-proclaimed “bummer core” group’s sound revolves around rock and indie with metalcore and emo influences. Their music can be found on Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon Music.

A limited number of in-person tickets will be raffled off to students through the UU social media @universityunion. For those who cannot attend the concert in person, there will be a live stream on Youtube.
