Calling All Vibrant Violets for the Premiere Alumni Edition of UltraViolet Live


There is no shortage of talent in the NYU community.  Since the inaugural event in 2003, the annual UltraViolet Live talent competition, sponsored by the Inter-Residence Hall Council, has become one of the University’s most beloved traditions.  In 2005, NYU freshmen Stefani Germanotta (best known as Lady Gaga) took second place. This past February, for the tenth  year in a row, student singer/songwriters, dancers, magicians, bands, rappers, comics, speed painters, contortionists, and more performed live for a panel of alumni and special guest judges, with soloist Tyler Johnson (TSOA ’14) taking home the grand prize.

This year, alumni are invited to audition for and attend the premiere alumni edition of UltraViolet Live, being held on Alumni Day, October 19, 2013.

To enter, send a one minute video of you performing your talent to alumni.connect@nyu.edu by September 2, 2013. The top contenders will be posted online on from September 9–13 and voted on by your fellow alumni, and the top 10 finalists will be invited to compete live on Alumni Day. Even if you’re not the type to take center stage, be sure to vote for your favorites and join us on Alumni Day to experience the talent and energy of the NYU alumni community!
