Singer/songwriter and guitarist Ashley Crnic (left) was one of more than 25 Carleton University music students who performed in the Carleton Music Showcase on Friday, January 11, 2008. About 250 family, friends and members of the public enjoyed the showcase, which was held in the Kailash Mital Theatre. Under the supervision of Professor James Wright, students performed rock, fusion, new country, music theatre and jazz compositions. Besides Crnic, the cast included Eric Disero, Anastasia Filippova, Stephen Helferty, Katie Hurdon and Geoffrey Stone.
