Listen to the Christmas Concert on Live Web Radio

You can tune in to tonight’s Gleneagle Music Christmas concert on 105 the Hive, a distributed K-12 web radio station developed and maintained by Ontario teachers Andy Forgrave and Heather Durnin, along with Clarence Fisher and a few other teachers across Canada. Inspired and brought about by the same technology (and some of the same people) that first broadcast Gleneagle events on #ds106radio, we’re excited at the prospect of sharing the warmth of the MPR tonight with a new audience.

Tune in by opening this playlist in an Internet browser or with a media player (like iTunes or VLC): http://radio.shoutcastcloud.com/tunein.php/hedurnin/playlist.pls

Gleneagle Music recognized on Baruch College Communications Institute blog

One of the listeners to Gleneagle’s Spring Concert, which aired live on #DS106Radio, was the director of the Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute & Writing Across the Curriculum coordinator at Baruch College, City University of NY, Mikhail Gershovich (Full disclosure: Mikhail provided part of the motivation to have the packed-house shout, DS106 Radio for Life!).

In his recent post on his college’s blog, Mikhail documents the broadcast of the concert as a landmark in the school’s history:

On June 9, 2011, students in the music program at Gleneagle Secondary School, a high school in Vancouver suburb Coquitam, BC, played their spring concert to a packed house in a 450 seat auditorium. A first in Gleneagle history, the performance was broadcast live over Internet radio to listeners all over the world. And while  that might sound like a huge undertaking requiring serious AV and IT infrastructure, it was not. Not at all. In a brilliant feat of do-it-yourself EdTech (or what some folks might have once called edupunk), the concert was streamed live by Bryan Jackson, a Music and English teacher in the school’s TALONS program, and graduating senior Olga Belikov, with a Macbook, some free software and a USB microphone. That’s it. That’s all it took to broadcast the spring concert to anyone anywhere who wanted to hear it. And it sounded great.

Gleneagle Music: Year End Photo Slideshow 2011

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.
