Feb. 10 'Know The Score' Broadcast Will Take A Look At Shakespeare

The plays of William Shakespeare will be one of the subjects of "Know the Score LIVE!", broadcast live from the University of Iowa Museum of Art's Lasansky Gallery and the Nancy and Craig Willis Atrium from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10.

The program, part of the weekly arts and humanities series hosted by Joan Kjaer, can be heard at that time on radio station KSUI, 91.7 FM (101.7 FM in Dubuque). It will be rebroadcast on KSUI 3-5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12, and 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15. You may also listen to the broadcast on the Internet at http://ksui.uiowa.edu.

The broadcast will be open to the public free of charge.

Guests will include Shakespeare scholar Miriam Gilbert from the UI English department, director Carol MacVey and others involved in University Theatres' upcoming production of "Love's Labour's Lost," and Stanford linguistic anthropologist Shirley Brice Heath, who will talk about what language tells us about our culture.

"Know the Score" usually includes music, and Feb. 10 will be no exception. Alan MacVey will perform piano music he has arranged for the production of "Love's Labour's Lost," and soprano Rachel Joselson will sing his arrangement of "The Song of the Owl and the Cuckoo."

Pianist Uriel Tsachor from the UI School of Music faculty will be on hand to play music by Johannes Brahms. The program will also feature a short visit from saxophonist Kenneth Tse, also from the School of Music.

The UI Museum of Art, located on North Riverside Drive in Iowa City, is open noon to 9 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.
