Our senses are how we interact with and understand the physical world around us, and that's reflected in the items we create. We invite you to explore historical objects and materials related to the five senses – experience ancient Greek perfume bottles, Peruvian whistling jars, the feel of different kinds of paper, recipe books to get your mouth watering, cutting-edge experimental music, and more! Come to your senses with materials from Special Collections & Archives, the Archaeology & Anthropology Collections, World Music Archives, and the East Asian Art & Archival Collections.

    Friday Reunion Concert featuring Bronson Rock

    8–10 p.m.
    Patricelli '92 Theater
    Hosted by members of the Class of 1983

    More on the concert

    All are invited to dance the night away! Bronson Rock is a four-piece rock band led by Gary Mezzi '83, who works under the stage name Buzz Gordo. Alums from the early 80s best remember him as the guitarist and namesake of Dr. Mezzi Fights Infection.

    In the past decade he has been Bronson Rock's guitarist, singer, and songwriter, and the Arts Council of Greater New Haven says his songs "make you think of the really cool British singer-songwriters in the late 1970s. His lyrics are smart and funny, and he's got a little bit of that snarl in his voice."

    The band also includes Tom Smith on drums, Eric Bloomquist on bass, and Lou St. John on keyboards, and they have recently released an 11-song album entitled Alligator Shoes, which is available on all streaming services or for purchase on Bandcamp. Thanks to his association with Lovecat Music Publishing (led by Randy Frisch '85), Mezzi's songs have appeared in such popular TV shows as True Blood, Divorce, Heartland, and 90210.

    A cash bar will be available in Zelnick Pavilion from 7:30 to 10 p.m.

    The concert is generously hosted by Ben Binswanger ‘83, Janet Binswanger ’83 P’16, Akiva J. Goldsman ‘83, Roger E. Kass ’83 P’20, Edward Kennedy Jr. ’83 P’16 ’20, Richard S. Saperstein ’83 P’14, Mason W. Wiley ‘83, and David Loo ‘83
