B There

Countdown to the Campaign

Campaign Kick-off

B fearless in the face of big bets. B part of a team that doesn't exist anywhere. B an architect of change. It's what Carnegie Mellon people do.

On Friday, Oct. 24, we invite you to help write the next chapter in what's been regarded as one of the great success stories in higher education today. Join us as we embark on a new challenge at "Celebrate Our Future: Carnegie Mellon's Campaign Kick-off."

Zachary Quinto (CFA '99) of the NBC hit series "Heroes" and Aaron Staton (CFA '04) from the Emmy Award-winning AMC series "Mad Men" will emcee the event — beginning at 8 p.m. on the College of Fine Arts Lawn.

Live entertainment will feature talent from right inside our own Carnegie Mellon community. Come out and enjoy performances by:

  • River City Brass Band Founded by an alumnus in 1981, the band currently features 13 alumni and faculty members playing swing, big band, jazz and more.
  • Cellofourte Includes two alumni and one current student. Unique sound that blurs the line between classical music and rock, from Bach to Led Zeppelin.
  • Idiot Boyfriend An all-alumni cover band, popular in the early 2000s when they were students and reuniting for one night only. Playing hits from the 1960s to present day.
  • The Billy Price Band Featuring new interpretations of blues, R&B and soul classics. Lead singer is a 1991 graduate and currently a staff member at the Software Engineering Institute.
  • Tim Ruff Trio Winner of the student "Battle of the Bands." Trio features a unique style of songwriting born of acoustically-driven melodies, smooth vocals and witty lyrics.   

This event is free-of-charge for all Carnegie Mellon alumni, students, faculty and staff. No registration is required.
