"Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story" at the River Campus

20 hours ago
Southeast Missouri State University

When rock and roll was born, its stars were bright. So bright, they still shine long after they’re gone.

Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story tells the story of Buddy Holly through his short yet spectacular career. If you think it’s a tale you’ve heard before, you’re missing the point. The show captures the dawn of an era and more than two-dozen of rock’s best songs that send audiences out of the theatre on an unstoppable high according to The Boston Globe.

This week it's the third and final program featuring highlights from this year's Newport Folk Festival, courtesy of NPR music. We've saved some of the best performances for last so make yourself another turkey sandwich, pour yourself the beverage that warms you best, and warm up your speakers with some great music.

Most of us have an image of the first thanksgiving that we learned in grade school:  of the Pilgrims sitting with the Indians at a large table with a white tablecloth celebrating the harvest together over a meal of turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie.

As this week's show came together it occured to me how many '80s and '90s-era bands with new music were on the playlist. 

The Dream Syndicate, key members of the Paisley Underground scene, have just released How Did I Find Myself Here, their first album since 1988.

Once the parade finishes and the turkey is gone, it’s time to fully turn our attention to holiday season, and what better way to start than with an evening of music to set the mood.

The Southeast Missouri Symphony Orchestra, Choral Union and University Choir is sure to get you in the spirit November 28 with a performance of Vivaldi’s Gloria. This joyful hymn of praise is a veritable holiday tradition and one that Symphony Conductor Sara Edgerton and Choir Director Barb Lamont say will be a can’t-miss performance.
