Session Programs to present Matt Wahl
Singer-songwriter Matt Wahl will present a free
outdoor concert Monday, June 17, at UW-Eau Claire.
The Summer Session Programs show will begin
at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall (rain: Schofield Auditorium).
Refreshments will be sold. Audience members are invited to bring
blankets or folding chairs for lawn seating.
Matt Wahl spent three years in an office
cubicle before giving up the corporate life for the open road.
Living his dream of touring and playing music full time, Wahl has
created a down-to-earth, lighthearted acoustic rock-folk sound that
appeals to any age. Drawing from such artists as Gordon Lightfoot,
Harry Chapin and Jimmy Buffett, he mixes lyrically meaningful
original songs with fun cover tunes.
Also on campus during the week of June 17
are these free events:
- Concerts by UW-Eau Claire and area jazz musicians will be
presented from noon to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday on the
Central Campus Mall (rain: The Cabin of Davies Center). A
variety of grilled lunch items will be sold.
- "The Four Feathers" (U.K. 1939) will screen Tuesday
and Thursday at noon and 7 p.m. in Davies Theatre, continuing
the Summer Cinema series about people making moral choices in an
immoral world. Often filmed but never better, this epic tale of
courage and redemption stars John Clements as an introspective
British soldier who resigns his commission just before his
regiment leaves for Lord Kitchener's 1898 campaign in the Sudan.
After he receives four white feathers — accusations of
cowardice — from his three closest friends and his fiancee, he
sets out to redeem himself in the eyes of those he loves.
Director Zoltan Korda shot on location
in exquisite Technicolor (earning an Oscar nomination for
cinematography), and did it near enough in time to the historical
events that many extras were veterans of the original battle of
Omdurman. Ralph Richardson, June Duprez and C. Aubrey Smith co-star
in one of the grandest Empire films of all time - one brave enough
to question the very traditions it celebrates. The 113-minute color
film will screen via video projection.
Summer Session Programs continue through
Aug. 1. A complete schedule is available from Activities and
Programs, Davies Center 133, 836-4833.
