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:

Here’s Alluvium at last year’s Voices concert:

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.

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.
