Pianist Julian Martin will perform a recital of waltzes, sonatas, and tableaux this Saturday in Eppley Auditorium. The artists is now on faculty at Julliard. His career took flight in 1975 as the winner of the Montevideo International Competition. Performances around the world have followed, as have seats on the juries of the major competitions including Montrial, Iowa International, and American Pianists' Foundation. 

Saturday in the Park looms large in Siouxland - we get out the extra sheets for friends and family who are returning for the weekend, dream up our ideal headliners, and debate past year’s lineups. With acts like Trombone Shorty and Joss Stone, not to mention Brother Ali and Sharkweek on the Abe Stage, this year’s lineup is going to be a big part of those future arguments. We caught up with event founder and organizer Dave Bernstein at the bandshell for a rundown of what’s to come.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee at 2:30pm ET today, as the investigation continues into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election. Sessions is expected to take questions about his recusal from the Russia investigation, his own meetings with Russian officials, and what if anything he knew about a private Oval Office meeting between President Trump and fired FBI Director James Comey.

Sweethearts on the Prairie

May 1, 2017

In the barest of outlines, their getting together seems a marriage of convenience. If you stop at the Homestead Monument, you might just think the gravestone up on the hill marks something cold. Pioneers like Daniel Freeman were incapable of expressing their feelings, if they have feelings at all. Isn’t that right?

Besides, old Daniel had to be flat out lonely. The Civil War was finally over and he’s got a place of his own, a homestead, first one anywhere. What he needs is woman.

World renowned harpsichordist Jory Vinikour will perform a recital this evening at 7:30 in the Levitt Gallery on the campus of Morningside College. We were fortunate to meet him in the gallery and even more so to broadcast an hour of conversation and music. During the interview, Jory discussed his love of the instrument, how he became a harpsichordist, and the story of the harpsichord we hear. We also discuss key figures of the High Baroque, and hear his performance of works by JS Bach, Rameau, Duphly, and Handel.
