Although the COVID-19 pandemic caused the School to move its annual winter alumni event to a virtual livestream, Circles 18: Coffee House attracted over 120 remote audience members. Performers took rapid COVID-19 antigen tests before gathering in the Ruth Corkin Theatre for a socially-distanced studio show. From a faculty group rendition of Paul Simon’s “Slip Slidin’ Away” to the Coffee House tradition, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” performers and audience members call the event a success.
