Dr. Gabrielle Baffoni, Professor of Single Reeds at Southeast Missouri State University, performed the last movement of Steve Reich's "New York Counterpoint" during Fresh Air on KRCU. It's a minimalist piece for a single clarinet and tape, on which many clarinet parts are recorded on top of eachother, creating the audio illusion of an ensemble. Since we're radio and we only offer the medium of audio, we must explain that there is no ensemble. Dr. Baffoni recorded the 10 other parts of the piece herself in multiple hours-long sessions, and performed the solo line live.

At the River Campus, we pride ourselves on bringing artists from around the world to our studios and stages, but can I tell you a secret? Some of my favorite shows are from the actors, artists and musicians a little closer to home.

This week, our music ensembles debut their season in concerts you won’t want to miss. We caught up with ensemble directors Joseph Jefferson, Marty Reynolds, and Shane Mizicko to hear what’s in store for Jazz, Wind Symphony, and Percussion.

Morrissey got on Twitter just in time for 280 characters, though it looks like it's just a promotional account. Guy would probably like it.  Anyway, he's got a new album on the way, titled Low in High School

What’s a nun’s perspective on Halloween? Everyone’s favorite Sister is back at the River Campus to share that and more this fall.

The Late Night Catechism series has been an audience favorite at the River Campus since its opening. In the latest installment, Sister gives audience members the Church’s take on all the familiar Halloween tales of ghosts and goblins in Sister’s Back to School Catechism: The Holy Ghost and Other Terrifying Tales.

Old Town Cape announced Monday it’s participating in a campaign called “Partners in Preservation: Main Streets.”

 

Old Town Cape could receive up to $150,000 in funding towards revitalization efforts at the Common Pleas Courthouse Park now known as ‘Ivers Square'. It was renamed in June of this year after former slave, James Ivers, who enlisted in the Union Army in 1863 after receiving his freedom.
