“Hillside” Tradition Continues in the Quad with Phillip Phillips

Hello parents!  My name is Emelia Dunston and I serve as the Director of Student Activities for Campus Programming here at Bellarmine.  In my role, I work with major campus programs including Homecoming and Senior Week and I serve as the advisor for the Bellarmine Activities Council – also referred to as BAC.  I am writing to let you know about an exciting event coming to campus in April.

The Hillside Concert is an annual tradition at Bellarmine, typically held in the spring.  It was named Hillside because the original concert was held in the natural amphitheater on the hillside behind the former Brown Activities Center, where the current University Dining Hall is located.  Past performers for this concert include Bowling for Soup, Gloriana, and Sara Bareilles.

This year’s Hillside Concert will feature American Idol winner Phillip Phillips and special guest Churchill.  Phillip Phillips is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Georgia who won season 11 of American Idol last year.  His first album, “The World from the Side of the Moon,” was released in November.  Churchill is an alt-country/pop-rock quintet out of Denver with a skill for blending various genres of music that highlights the talents of each member.  Their forthcoming full-length debut album is scheduled to be released this spring.

Hillside is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at 7:30pm in the Quad behind Horrigan Hall (Rain Location:  Knights Hall).  This event is standing room only.  The show is open to students, faculty, staff and the general public.  Tickets are $5 for Bellarmine University students and $15 for the general public, faculty and staff.  You can purchase tickets online at www.BellarmineTickets.com.

We are very excited about welcoming Phillip Phillips to the Louisville area and having him on campus for the students.  I hope that you will encourage your son or daughter to purchase a ticket and come out for the show that evening.  You are also welcome to attend the show and join us for a great evening of music out on the quad.

If you have any questions about the event or other activities taking place on campus this semester, feel free to contact me at edunston@bellarmine.edu for more information.
