2The Daily Tar HeelMonday, February 10, 1992 High-spirited audience appreciates all-vocal show Congratulations are in order for the UNC Clef Hangers' second annual a cappella invitational, a hit well appreci ated by the sell-out crowd in Carroll Hall Saturday night. Saturday night's program featured Speak of the Devil from Duke Univer sity, The Extractions from UNC Dental and Medical Schools, Virginia Gentle men from the University of Virginia, Vocal Point from the University of Rochester and the Clef Hangers. It was clear that the audience was in high spirits and expecting great talent from these performances as they enthu siastically applauded the Clef Hangers' rendition of a Beatles' favorite,"I Wanna Hold Your Hand." From then on, it was an evening of smooth sailing through a sea of great sounds. Speak of the Devil, a group which formed a year ago, got the audience's attention with a humorous song outlin ing their history as a group and their background. They sang selections from the past such as the "Happy Days" theme song and"Brown-EyedGirl."They also touched on the soulful side of melody with "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother." Overall, they were a talented and humorous ensemble to watch. The Extractions, a group consisting of only five members, performed an exciting version of "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye" and some old favorites such as "Run Around Sue" and "Stand By Me." The audience also enjoyed the group's skit depicting Eric Montross getting mutilated by Duke players in the recent UNC-Duke game. According to Make Granville Towers your choice at UNC.

The main emphasis at DIS is on what is happening right now. I was taught by excellent Danish professors who also practice in their fields. The study tours are incredible.

Though it seems impossible to imag ine an a cappella group performing "Unbelievable" by EMFor"Right Here, Right Now" by Jesus Jones, Virginia Gentlemen did it quite successfully. A highly talented group with a di verse repertoire, the Virginia Gentle men captivated the audience from the beginning of their segment. When they r r mm Granville Towers in TM - Affiliated with the University of Copenhagen DIHDebhe Slmgel Saturday evening in Carroll Hall performed a Pink Floyd selection, the audience was mesmerized by the beau tiful tones and poignant pauses between phrases. Serenading a member of the audi ence brought onto the stage, Virginia Gentlemen was the only group to inter act directly with the audience. Nancy Ingram, a member of the Loreleis, pointed out that Virginia Gentlemen are "always awesome." The audience agreed as they gave the men a standing ovation and were thrilled with the encore they received. Vocal Point, the only female group in Saturday night's program, gave an interesting performance as it refreshed the audience by showing things from a woman's point of view. From the confrontational tone in "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" to the haunting melody of a Eurythm ics selec tion, they gave the listeners a rare treat. Highlighting their performance was an entertaining skit which explained the "PMS Woman": a creature convinced that men are always wrong, and able to HHH TODAY 7:00 pm KiW lit g(rfl0 A FREE Seminar Total Test preparation Monday, February 10th 7:00 pm Room 106 Gardner U.N.C. Elizabeth Oliver Concert find every minute fault in anyone cross ing her path. The Clef Hangers, performing last, were animated throughout their presen tation. They conveyed an effective sense of togetherness by huddling in a group during their serious selections. One song in particular, "Somebody," seemed to capture the audience as the tender lyrics told of a man's quest for true love. The Clefs also entertained the audi ence with a skit outlining some typical UNC campus perils such as the Pit preacher and registering through Caroline. As expected, this ensemble garnered much applause and returned for an upbeat encore. Perhaps Neal Nichols, a freshman pharmacy major from Taylorsville, re flected the audience's attitude towards the invitational best when he said, "They looked like they were having so much fun, it made me wish I was up there with them." As the evening drew to a close with the audience joining the Clef Hangers in the singing of UNC's alma mater, it was difficult to distinguish who en joyed the evening more: the performers on the stage or the people watching them.

Sponsored in conjunction with Alpha Kappa Psi .THE, Ainni J Hi " " EDUCATIONAL GROUP Advising from page 1 Lowman said he also would wel come any suggestions students had to improve the systems. "There are stu dents walking around here with a wealth of ideas." The advisory committee is only con cerned with General College, which ' comprises freshmen and sophomores. Once sophomores have declared their majors, their records are transferred to the College of Arts and Sciences, where students are assigned both a departmen tal and an Arts and Sciences adviser. ' The journalism, business and phar macy schools are not part of the College of Arts and Sciences. The committees, will not examine the advising systems of these schools. Benzaquin said the advisory com mittee might look at the transition be tween the two colleges. Thecommitteealso willdiscusscom-. munication between advisers and stu dents. "Apparently, a lot of students are . receiving mail late or never getting it at all," she said, adding that this was a . problem especially for out-of-state stu-. dents. Other areas that committee members hope to examine include the expansion , of the Carolina Course Review and an improved preregistration schedule for incoming freshmen. Milton Smith, an advisory commit tee member, added that student feed- . back would help improve communica-' tion between advisers and students. "We're going to see how we can get more of the advisees to come in to see their advisers." He added that many students were unable to discuss majors and academic problems with their advisers because of time-consuming paperwork. "Some students have never even seen a sheet with the requirements for their majors," he said. Benzaquin said advisers' schedules were hampered by students who failed -to make appointments or who missed their scheduled meetings. "Each of the advisers has 225 stu dents," she said. 'There is some responsibility that the student has to take." But she added that a common prob lem among students was that they be lieved "they can do it on their own with all the rules we have here." ! "By not using the advising system, people might be caught off guard." She said she hoped the committees' would find a compromise between in dependence and guidance. "Helpful as the advising system is, we don't want to be hand holders." 10 Visits $35.00 20 Visits $60.00 Open 7 days a week Til 10 pm Weekdays On Franklin Street next to The Parlor 929-5409 by i
