MORGANTOWN — West Virginia University’s University Arts Series has dedicated itself for nearly half a century to providing quality entertainment to both students at the university and residents of the surrounding areas.
The series has been going on for 47 years, said Kristie Stewart-Gale, the marketing and advertising manager of arts and entertainment.
“We receive no university or state funding to directly produce these events,” she said. “All of the series events must pay for themselves through ticket sales and advertising.”
This season, they had musicals, such as “Dirty Dancing” and “Elf,” concerts, including “RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles” and “Foreigner,” the “Moscow Ballet” and more. Each year, they work to cater to the requests of attendees.
“We bring in everything from Broadway musicals and comedy to dance and magic,” Stewart-Gale said. “The series also includes many genres of music, including but not limited to jazz, blues, oldies, folk, pop, swing and R&B. If our audience ask..
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Art students in Fort Lauderdale got a special visit Monday from world renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
The visit was part of the Kennedy Center's "Arts Across America" tour.
Students at Walker Elementary School gave Yo-Yo Ma and bagpiper Cristina Pato a warm welcome.
"It was the most amazing warm welcome, really seeing things that we didn't know was happening here and it's been really affirming," Kennedy Center President Deborah Rutter said.
Students in Walker Elementary's arts programs entertained their guests in the school’s auditorium and then performed with the professionals.
The time they spent with the children moved the artists.
"The most fascinating thing for us was to watch them perform, to see the energy of the school, how much life and, especially, how much love," Pato said.
"There is so much love in this school. The kindergarten class that I visited and the love from the teacher, from the children, and they're genuinely c..
It's 2018 and women are still treated as second-class citizens, as we continuously deal with the injustices that face our gender. Having to fight for equality in almost everything we encounter, ranging from ridiculous pay gaps to sexual assault. There have been movements and protests that have spanned decades, but it seems no one was actually listening. In light of the scandals that have recently plagued Hollywood, it appears that this is the time people are finally paying attention. It's not just the women who are listening, the men are finally waking up to their privilege and stepping down to make room for the people who have endured and suffered under this oppression. As last night's Golden Globes demonstrated and how Oprah's powerful speech articulated, Time Is Up and the era of women speaking out is finally here and this time we're actually being heard. The prominent women in our culture are using their positions of power and influence to initiate discussi..
