Brian Rodas, business major, was happy to participate for the first time at the Cerritos College Faculty Showcase as the master of ceremony.

The event took place on Sunday, Feb. 28, at the Burnight Center Theater.

The event was sponsored by the music department of Cerritos College.

Rodas was delighted to see that there was lots of piano performances scheduled.

Dr. Andrew Maz Chair of the Music Department of Cerritos College said, “I’ve done this for four years and this is the time for faculty to showcase their talent.”

Admission was $12 and the money went toward creating scholarships.

Dr. Maz said planning took a month to organize and prepare a list of performers

He received applause for his acoustic guitar performance singing “Anxiety Winter.”

The faculty showcase is held every semester and this was the first time there was a ballet dance performance.

Voice Professor Rhonda Dillion said “I was happy to see 65 audience members despite it being an Oscars weekend.”

Her performance started Capella until piano started to compliment the momentum of the singing of the song “Take Oh Take”

Dillion has performed several times in the past for the showcase and hopes the audience enjoyed the entertainment.
