St. Lawrence University is home to some amazing musical talent. I stumbled upon Chris LaVancha’s gift one night when the L.I.G.H.T. House had a live music/dinner event. As soon as he started singing and playing original songs on the guitar I was mesmerized. I had absolutely no idea he had so much talent; I was blown away. We had been in the same six person Literature and Medicine class for nearly a month, but had never spoken until that night. After the show I approached him to tell him how much I appreciated his music, and we’ve been friends ever since. He only has one music video on his YouTube account currently, which received over 700 views in less than a week. You can hear him live at most open mic nights around campus, or by stopping by The Annex. I highly recommend listening to his music, especially since he will be auditioning for the next season of The Voice!
