Nu Kappa Epsilon: Playing for Change Benefit Concert 2019

This past Sunday on November 10th, 2019, Her Campus at CNU attended Nu Kappa Epsilon’s annual Playing for Change benefit concert. The Playing for Change Foundation is Nu Kappa Epsilon’s philanthropy that strives to connect the world through music. They have opened schools and music programs in fifteen different states to further educate people in the universal language of music. The annual Playing for Change concert at CNU aims to “showcase the diverse talent of the student body while also educating and making a difference in the world.”

This year’s Playing for Change concert featured many talented performers, including the sisters of Nu Kappa Epsilon, the brothers of Phi Mu Alpha sinfonia, CNU acapella groups Take Note and University Sounds.

The performance that really stood out to me the most this year was University Sounds’ performance of Bird Set Free by Sia. The lyrics of the song fit so perfectly with the message of the event: “And I don't care if I sing off key. I find myself in my melodies. I sing for love, I sing for me. I shout it out like a bird set free.”

The entire event was created as a movement of love, peace and acceptance through the shared love of music. Music is a universal language that breaks boundaries around the world and is always able to bring people together in a loving, positive atmosphere.

We are so grateful we attended the concert again this year. Thank you to the sisters of Nu Kappa Epsilon for hosting such a beautiful event. Until next year!
