Imani Winds - Master Class with SIREN

By Hannah Morgan

Imagine perfecting a piece of music and then performing it to an audience- only to have members immediately climb onstage and critique the performance.

The University of Maryland's graduate fellowship wind quintet, SIREN, began playing together this past September. The five talented musicians, hailing from all over the states, led the audience through a cultural journey Wednesday night.


Dance, Dance, Dance!

By Teleathia Gardner

Being a part of the audience of the 29th Annual Choreographers' Showcase helped me confirm the reasons for an event taking place for such a long time. It was an experience that everyone should live, even if dance isn't your forte. The dancers demonstrate a diversity of choreography that swept me off of my feet. Although I have such a minimal dance history, I know that this showcase housed spectacular techniques from start to finish.

Our patrons go beyond the norm, connect with other cultures and listen to the spirit within. In September 2010, our patrons expressed their enthusiasm before a performance by the Mongolian folk ensemble AnDa Union.
