What is Live Music?

Live Music (LM) helps to plan and carry out musical events for the ESU community. Solo artists, small acts, major concerts, bands, and even karaoke are a few examples of events this committee handles. Some of the performers Live Music has helped bring in the past have included Ty Mayfield, Kazual and Kevin Mac.



Morgan Smith, Chair 

Morgan is a 19 year old Sophomore from Baldwin City, KS, majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Morgan chose Emporia State because "it was a small close campus" but claimed it "felt more like a community...a family away from home." Morgan has been on Union Activities Council since Spring of 2014, serving on Live Music and Talks & Topics. She joined to be a part of student life and as a way to get others involved. When asked about UAC, Morgan said "It is a life changing experience. It was a fast fun way to get involved and everyone was very welcoming and friendly. I'd recommend to EVERYONE." Morgan also wants people to know that she "loves to meet new people and hear things they've seen or done." So, don't hesitate to talk to her!


Shelby Smith

Shelby Smith, Vice Chair

Shelby, a senior, is a 22 year old Interdisciplinary Studies from Kansas City, Missouri. Shelby chose Emporia State "because of the friendly people and small campus atmosphere." She said that she "didn't feel intimidated by the university's size or that I'd be lost in a sea of people." Shelby just recently joined UAC and chose the Live Music committee because of her love of music and wanted to be a part of getting artists here on campus. When asked about it, Shelby said that she "has never heard a bad thing about Union Activities Council. The events they put on are a ton of fun and a great way to meet new people." This summer, Shelby worked in the Kansas City Power and Light District as a Live! Lady and has worked with SaveAStranger and BetaBlox in marketing and public relations. She loves meeting new people and believes no question is stupid.
