Musical Charis at the Crocker [Photos]


  Last week March 14th, was not only the Crocker Art Museum’s monthly Art Mix event, which is held every second Thursday, but also the kick off of local folk rock band Musical Charis’ national tour. The event started off with the 8X8 Dance Competition, with dancers performing on an 8′ by 8′ wooden stage.  The winner of the competition was Karen Schmidt, choreographing the highly entertaining "Down the Tubes" that had four dancers use cloth tubes to create various outfits such as dresses, skirts, hats and much more.  After the competition, the host of the evening asked all guests to participate in the filming of a "Harlem Shake" video, which is a type of video going viral on the internet right now.  Particpants grabbed nearby props ranging from large bananas to large picture frames as they danced their hearts out during filming.

After the "Harlem Shake" video was filmed, Musical Charis started their first set performing a few covers from Johnny Cash and some of their own popular songs like "East West."  The band’s blend of folk and rock music had the crowd moving.  In between sets, the band premiered their newest music video featuring another local artist, Autumn Sky.
