Postcards from California

Over spring break, the Gleneagle Music Department will be headed south to Los Angeles and the Heritage Music Festival, where we brought home many awards and recognitions four years ago (when the festival was held in New York City).

Students in Gleneagle’s bands, choir, and vocal jazz ensembles will be taking in not only the elite musical showcase at the festival, but also the wilds of Disneyland, Universal Studios, and the California Beach (not to mention temperatures approaching 30 Celsius ), and will be bringing home no shortage of laughter and memorable experiences to be shared in car rides home from YVR and into the rest of the spring semester.

But we hope to be sharing some of our adventures and performances with our audience here on the Music at Gleneagle blog, as well as Twitter, Youtube, Flickr, and K12 distributed web radio station 105 the Hive, based in Ontario, Canada.

You can subscribe to this site by entering your email address above to recieve updates when we post things here, or can also check back on a regular basis.

The Music Department will also be updating its Twitter profile with more sporadic 140 character posts and pictures, which you can view and follow here, www.twitter.com/gleneaglemusic. Recordings and videos will be shared here on the blog, but we will also be streaming recordings and audio post cards live from the festival and hotel on 105 the Hive Radio for Learning, which you can listen to by visiting their website: http://www.105thehive.org/listen.

Stay tuned to the Gleneagle Twitter account to hear about upcoming live broadcasts.

Though possibly a little heavy on pictures of our Cuba Tour, we can offer the excuse that it was a highly memorable experience (and setting for many beautiful photographs). Thanks to Nolan & Jeff who supplied many of their shots to join with Mr. J’s albums.

Spring Concert to be Broadcast on Internet Radio

In continuing to break out of the box of physical limitations around the performing arts (many of them only happen once: if you miss it, you miss it), and find new ways to preserve and otherwise share our department’s myriad wonderful concerts, improvisations, and tour stops, Gleneagle Music’s Spring Concert (June 9th – 7pm PST) will be broadcast live on the distributed station, DS106 Radio. Originally conceived as an outlet for creative work in Jim Groom‘s raucous Digital Storytelling 106 course, offered through the University of Mary Washington, DS106 Radio is:

…a free form live streaming station that has been setup for this course, and it is being used as a platform to broadcast the work being created in the class, and a space for live broadcasts as well as for programming shows. The whole point of this experiment is to encourage any and all members of the course (as well as beyond it) to produce something real for anyone who wants to tune in. It’s also provides a global, 24 hour/7 day-a-week happening for the creations of the course and much, much more. And more than anything, ds106 radio is place where anyone can submit their work and help program the course radio station in order to commune and share around works and ideas while at the same time making the web safe for democracy.

Gleneagle Music students have been sharing rehearsals and lunchtime jam sessions live to DS106Radio audiences for the last few weeks, offering listeners ‘teasers‘ of material they will be treated to on June 9th, at approximately 7pm (Pacific Time Zone). Check in with @GleneagleMusic or @BryanJack on Twitter for updates prior-to the show.

Fall Concert starts musical year with a Bang!

Vocal Jazz soundcheck

Last night, Gleneagle‘s Junior and Senior bands were joined by the Concert Choir, Jazz Band and Vocal Jazz groups in putting on the year’s first formal concert. Four hundred and fifty tickets – and then some – were sold, and a packed house spent the evening being rocked and rolled by the finest our music department has to offer. Check out Gleneagle’s Music Department Flickr account to see more pictures of the year’s first concert.
