Night of Nations Shines the Light on Cultural Diversity
Some 130 students representing countries from around the world will perform Saturday, Nov. 11 at SUNY Plattsburgh’s Night of Nations.
Carrying the theme “Wonderland: Open the Door to the World,” this large-scale event celebrates cultural diversity and showcases a variety of talent among SUNY Plattsburgh students who wish to share their international background.
According to Janelle Burgos, public relations coordinator for the Global Education Office, Night of Nations provides a bridge to connect the international and domestic student community within Plattsburgh through the arts and entertainment.
Performers representing such clubs as African Unity, J-CAP, V-Nation and Club Caribbean are among those taking the stage in the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium. Student performers handle all aspects of production themselves, including choreography, costume selection and assembly.
“We are expecting a sold-out show like many years past that will educate the audience about some of the amazing things that can be found in the people and cultures of the world,” Burgos said. “Those who have never experienced Night of Nations should expect a wonderful, exciting and entertaining journey around the world in the comfort of the SUNY Plattsburgh campus."
Tickets are free and can be obtained at the Angell College Center desk. Doors open at 7 p.m, but Burgos recommends attendees arrive early for the best seats.
