Eddie Otterness, the new Music Tech Club president and aspiring civil engineer, has been a part of the club since 2016.
Since he has always enjoyed working with music, he likes the idea of binding his music with his engineering, picturing a day where he can play in a building that he built. He also has dreams of leading humanitarian efforts overseas and helping underdeveloped countries grow and produce more.
“The club’s been up to a lot of cool things this year,” Otterness said. “We threw a mixer September 15th and played the music at the Homecoming Dance. We’ve also had several parties at the Art Center.”
The opportunity to partner with the Art Center was a complete coincidence. The former president of the Art Club, another campus organization Otterness is involved with (he serves as the Vice President), worked at the Art Center. Otterness said when he casually asked about hosting an event there, he was able to secure a place to throw free mixers whenever he needed!
The Music Tech Club plans on hosting more mixers. The next will hopefully be soon and may feature a fashion show collaboration with Rochester-based fashion line “Simba.”
Otterness hopes his activity within the club will increase student involvement and encourage more RCTC students to make their own music. If you wish to get involved, you can join the Music Tech Club at their weekly meetings at 2 p.m. Thursdays in MH211 or email Edward.Otterness2971@mb.rctc.edu.
