Music Monday: Sing Broadway with Aquila

by Irene Yuan, Multimedia Editor

Music Monday features a different category of songs on a weekly basis. Each Monday, Harker Aquila will release seven songs, one song for each day of the week. In tandem with this year’s NYC Broadway Week, which runs from Jan. 21 to Feb. 9, we have compiled a mini-playlist of true show tunes. Whether you prefer the slow, nostalgic mood of “Memory” or the fun back-and-forth of “America,” we hope this week’s theme of bright lights and theater culture helps you start off the new semester with high spirits.
