Ode, this year’s grad show, will be one of the largest ever. An annual tradition, this is the last opportunity for artists in their final year of their undergraduate degree to present their work that has been the product of four years of artistic exploration and self-discovery. The exhibit is run entirely by the students, who organized themselves into groups responsible for fundraising, planning for the opening night, or creating the catalogue.

Although the self-described “ska-rockers” have relocated to Toronto, three of the members are originally from Aylmer, Que. and consider Ottawa their hometown. The band has toured across Canada, but play primarily in eastern Ontario, and are thrilled to be returning to one of Ottawa’s most popular live music venues, as they have played the Ottawa scene extensively.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, or The Magic Flute, first opened in 1791. On March 3, the University Ottawa’s Opera Company will be bringing the over 200-year-old opera to Tabaret Hall, so opera lovers can check it out without using a time machine, or even leaving campus.

The album never slows down from start to finish, and it’s perfect to dance along to or pick you up if you’re feeling down. Every song can make you laugh. It does everything a peppy pop song should do, just presented in a radically different way, and across an entire album instead of one four-minute track.
