Remember the good old days of sipping coffee and listening to live music in Backstage of the La Salle Union Building or the E & F Lounge.
Let's relive those glory days! Join fellow alumni in a new initiative of the Alumni Association, Virtual Alumni Coffee House.
Every other Thursday, we will have live performances where singers, songwriters, and playwrights can perform in a 30-minute time slot.
As part three of the series, we are delighted to have the following alumni perform:
Michael Poggoli, '20
Michael Poggoli was a Secondary Education and English major at La Salle. He was a member of the Masque, Collegian, and ESA service sorority groups on campus. He currently works as a middle school teacher for American Paradigm Schools in Philadelphia.

All of his music can be found on all streaming services, and his most recent album, "The Goodest Boys and Girls," was finished during the pandemic and was released in early December, 2020.
