Choir, rock ‘n’ roll, folk songs, a piano sonata,

pizza, sausages, desserts, plus BBQ

 

A few days before the Dragon Boat Festival, in front of the dining hall,

The Overseas Association of Westlake University is presenting the grand fair of

A midsummer night’s dream.

 

This is a unique gala brewed in Westlake only

No splendid stage

No top stereos

Just us Westlakers

From lead singer to bass player, from keyboard to songwriter,

All made in Westlake by our iconic Music Club.

The campus is on fire.

 

When the curtains are drawn,

The lead singer grabs his guitar, instead of leaving the stage.

No fancy costumes,

But still looking good with our Westlaker-only T-shirts.

 

Holding BBQ in one hand and a balloon in the other,

Mix good food with quality music.

We applaud everyone who dares to sing on stage,

 

And we love the buzz.

We want the passion.

 

Because we are dreamers,

because we are young,

Because we are bold and untold.

 

Put on glowing “kitten ears”,

We are superstars tonight.

Lab show or party, Westlakers are foodies. German sausages, French croissants, Italian pizza ... foodies have no boundaries. The whole world is our plate.


First off, City of Stars by Westlake Choir.


Jingyi Mao from the Office of Infrastructure and Facility Management showed his varsity, a piano player and African drummer, all in his melodious and idyllic Chopin: Nocturne No.2 in E-Flat Major.
