5)      Aarohi discussion

-Cannot happen in August as 17th-21st 1st week classes people very busy, then need atleast 3-4 weeks to publicise. So End September is the earliest they can hold.


If they tie up with Asha they prefer :

-hall reserving fees by Asha (which they say are low, 40$ for 4 hours student center theatre or free if SGA supports written here )

-equipment they have their own

-performers they would contact

-ticketing they would do (they have done this for Khayaal )

Example of ticketed concert Aarohi helped to stage (please note in this case organized by ICMS- Aaorhi just spread the word/publicity:


-marketing they do themselves by FB -they want Asha to help with spreading the word

-on day of event, stage and setup - they do not need Asha volunteers, they have friends, etc to help. We are welcome to join to help them too.
