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.

You can stream the station live into iTunes and other media players by clicking the link below:

Take Away Show: Oasis’ “Wonderwall”

Excellent revision of an acoustic classic by Olga Belikov, recorded on a spring day in grade twelve. It literally doesn’t get better.

Vanessa and Nina recorded this intimate cover of Kate Nash’s “I hate Seagulls” during guitar class in the last week of May, 2011.

Latin combo rehearses at Lunch

Inspired by a recent matinee visitors and Jazz Dinner Dance headliners Rumba Calzada, a group of Gleneagle jazz students tested out some latin rhythms over lunch this week.

Guitar Presentation: Kiss Me

Throughout each term, guitar students are required to demonstrate their skill development in the course of several (individual or group) presentations. In committing to this emphasis on collaboration, there is an incentive for those with existing musical talents in singing or percussion lending their abilities to the daily practice and performances of others.

On one such performance-Thursday: a particularly stunning cover of Sixpence None the Richer‘s nineties hit, “Kiss Me.”
