Arts Events Previewed On 'Know The Score LIVE!' April 11

University of Iowa radio station KSUI, 91.7 FM (101.7 FM in Dubuque), will offer previews of events at Hancher Auditorium, University Theatres and the UI Museum of Art, along with some music and children's literature, as part of KSUI's "Know the Score LIVE!" broadcast from the UI Museum of Art 5-7 p.m. Friday, April 11.

The program, part of the weekly arts and humanities series hosted by Joan Kjaer on KSUI, will take place before a live audience in the Lasansky Room and will be broadcast over KSUI at that time as well as 3-5 p.m. Sunday, April 13, and 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, April 16. Listen on the internet at http://ksui.uiowa.edu.

The Tallis Scholars, international superstars of Renaissance vocal music, will open the program, just a few hours before they take the stage for an 8 p.m. concert at Hancher Auditorium.

Director Eric Forsythe will talk about the University Theatres production of "The Flea in Her Ear" by Georges Feydeau, which opens April 10 for a 2-week run in E.C. Mabie Theatre.

UI Museum of Art curator Kathleen Edwards will join visiting curator Stephen Goddard and print dealer Alan Platt to discuss regionalist artists and their print work. This discussion will focus on "Remembering the Family Farm, 150 Year of American Prints," an exhibition of 66 prints by 50 artists currently on display in the Museum of Art, as well as the museum's annual Print Fair, taking place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 12.

Iowa City author Tess Weaver will tell us why she wrote her children's story "Opera Cat" which will be read by 12-year-old Daria Kieffer.

Finally, UI School of Music faculty members Shari Rhoads and Ksenia Nosikova will play music for piano four-hands, including some works by Johann Hulderich Rohm, an obscure 18th-century German composer. Rohm is a distant relative of UI professor emeritus of religion George Nickelsburg, who will be on hand to discuss the music with Rhoads and Kjaer.

M.C. Ginsberg Objects of Art, Inc. of Iowa City is the corporate sponsor of "Know the Score" broadcasts at the UI Museum of Art.

The UI Museum of Art, located on North Riverside Drive in Iowa City, is open noon to 10 p.m. Fridays. Admission is free to the museum and to the "Know the Score LIVE!" broadcast. Public metered parking is available in UI parking lots west and north of the museum.
