UWSP Choirs Concert, May 5, 2013

I was contacted the other day by an intern with the UWSP Department of Music asking for permission to use an image from a previous blog post titled . My images are generally available without charge to local non-profit and educational organizations for promotional purposes.  I am also delighted the intern asked for my permission to utilize the image.  I am glad to know graphic arts students are taught to respect ownership of intellectual material. If you like his poster and want to contract for his services let me know, I can put the two of you in contact with each other.

If you are in the area, make sure to attend this concert.  I heard some of the program at . The concert is sure to please you.

Soirée Musicale – a benefit for UWSP student scholarships

April 27, 2013

Cathy and I had the pleasure of attending  the fifteenth annual Soirée Musicale, an event supporting student scholarships in the Department of Music, at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. We have had the honor of participating on the planning committee during the past three years.

Soirée is an evening of food and exceptional entertainment provided by UWSP faculty, students and alumni. The department itself is composed of exceptional faculty who are dedicated to teaching the art and craft of music. One example of their dedication is the universal participation by faculty in this event, either as performers or as a supportive member of the audience.  Their efforts are increasingly attracting top musical talent to UWSP.

Lantern Festival – University of Wisconsin Stevens Point

UWSP Chinese Club Lantern Festival 2013

UWSP Chinese Club Lantern Festival 2013

We spent some time this week with a number of students in Stevens Point who hail for other countries including a student from China.`The week culminated with attending a Lantern Festival sponsored by UWSP’s Chinese Club.  There was a nice meal followed by entertainment provided by the students. The show was a mix of dance, song, instrumentals, sit-coms and then an exercise session.

Seems as during each Chinese school day, the entire school proceeds to the school yard for a rousing exercise routine set to music.  At first blush the activity seems a little regimented, but on further contemplation, regular exercise of the body helps the mind to stay energized.  Not a bad idea.
