Lunchtime Jams: Resurrected!

Lunchtime Jam w/ Jacquie, Donya & Olga 06.07.11

2010 Lunchtime Jam

Over the last few years, Gleneagle Music has made a habit of sharing live performances with the Ontario-based K12 web radio station, 105 the Hive. Our  Introduction to Guitar class has presented recitals on the air, we stream almost all of our concerts each year, and our ensembles and choirs shared tour stops in California live to listeners in Canada, Europe, New Zealand, and South America. By special request from a Gleneagle parent on vacation in Ireland last spring, we shared the entirety of the Voices Benefit Concert so he could hear his son play drums on a cover of Elvis Presley’s “Hound Dog.”

This Fall, a group of graduating seniors have been plotting a return of one of the early traditions of web radio in the choir and band rooms: the Lunchtime Jam.

Beginning this Thursday (October 3rd) on lunch hour, you’ll be able to stream live music directly from Gleneagle Music on 105 the Hive. Stay tuned, or say Hi! to our @GleneagleMusic Twitter feed, and join us via any of the means listed here to enjoy:

Gleneagle’s Got Talent Teaser

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.

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.
