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:
Kicking things off on Thursday are members of Gleneagle’s Alluvium, who may be joined by the guys from Knit Me a House.
Here’s Alluvium at last year’s Voices concert:
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.
Some memorable tour moments shared on the blog in the last few years:
We hope to be sharing more and adding to this list in just over a week, and hope you can join us!
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
