KSUI'S 'Know the Score' to be broadcast live March 8 at UI Museum of Art

humanities programs, will be broadcast live 5-7 p.m. March 8 from the Lasansky
Room at the University of Iowa Museum of Art. All are invited to attend, but
seating will be limited.
The program on KSUI 91.7 FM, the UI's public radio station, will feature
the world-renowned vocal ensemble king'singers. Established in 1968 and originally
affiliated with King's College, this sextet of Englishmen performs a diverse
repertoire, ranging from folk songs to madrigals to contemporary pop hits.
The group will be appearing at Hancher Auditorium at the UI later that evening
at 8 p.m. (See release at http://news-releases.uiowa.edu/2002/february/0214kingsingers.html).
Musical guests also include Tadeu Coelho, associate professor of flute at
the UI, and pianist Shari Rhoads of the UI School of Music. They will perform
Mexican composer Eduardo Gamboa's work "Transparencias." A local
Celtic band, Stones in the Field, will also perform.
Other guests include David Skorton, UI vice president for research and interim
vice president for external relations, who will engage Tadeu Coelho in a discussion
and demonstration of Latin popular music. Susan White, assistant professor
of art, who will speak about the Mexican painter Posada; and Christopher Merrill,
director of the UI's International Writing Program who will read selected
The UI Museum of Art event marks the first live broadcast of the show, which
began a year and a half ago "in the hopes that music and culture, the
arts and humanities, and poetry and prose could interact on the radio as they
do in real life," said host Joan Kjaer.
"Music is always the predominant element in 'Know the Score,' and that
will continue to be the case as we take the program from the studio 'on the
road'" added Kjaer.
