Jerling to present outdoor concert
Singer-songwriter Michael Jerling will present a
free outdoor concert Monday, June 24, at UW-Eau Claire.
The Summer Session Programs show will begin
at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall (rain site: Schofield
Auditorium). Refreshments will be sold. Audience members are invited
to bring blankets or folding chairs for lawn seating.
Illinois-born songwriter Michael Jerling
became involved with music while he helped run The Cabin as a
student at UW-Eau Claire. Settled now in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.,
Jerling has been a noted artist on the club, college and festival
circuits since 1975. He has been among the winners of the
prestigious New Folk competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival, and
his involvement with the Fast Folk Musical Magazine in New York City
led to one of his songs being included on the album "Fast Folk:
A Community of Singers & Songwriters" (Smithsonian Folkways
2002). His newest CD is "Little Movies" (2001).
Also on campus during the week of June 24
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 site: The Cabin, Davies Center). A
variety of grilled lunch items will be sold.
- David Mamet's 1999 drama, "The Winslow Boy," will
screen Tuesday and Thursday at noon and 7 p.m. in Davies
A tribute to the ideals of justice,
Terence Rattigan's 1946 play is based on a 1910 British court case
that was an unprecedented challenge to the crown. Mamet's adaptation
emphasizes the central household and the values embodied by its
members -- principally the stern, compassionate patriarch, the
suffragette daughter and young Ronnie, a cadet at the Royal Naval
College. When Ronnie is summarily expelled from school for stealing
-- a charge he denies -- the family engages a celebrated conservative
lawyer to press for the hearing the boy has been denied. The case
becomes a national cause celebre, and great financial and personal
sacrifices must be made in order to bring the case to court. Rated
G, the 110-minute color film will screen via DVD projection.
Summer Session Programs continue through
Aug. 1. A complete schedule is available from Activities and
Programs, Davies Center 133, 836-4833.
