Summer Session Programs to present Alice Peacock
Singer-Songwriter Alice Peacock will present a free outdoor concert Monday, July 15, 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 may bring blankets or chairs for lawn seating.
     In a songwriter world awash in dour troubadours who believe that brooding is a sign of depth, Alice Peacock's invitingly melodic and open-hearted songs are like a warm summer breeze.
     Born in White Bear Lake, Minn., Peacock studied theater at Lawrence University, detoured through San Francisco and sang backup with a rhythm-and-blues band, then packed up her VW Bug and moved to Chicago to go solo. ranked her debut album, "Real Day," one of the Ten Best Emerging Artist CDs of 1999.
     These free events also will be presented on campus during the week of July 15:
  •      "The Sorrow and the Pity" (France 1972), Marcel Ophüls' monumental documentary, 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.
         "A magnificent epic on the themes of collaboration and resistance" (Pauline Kael), the four-hour film creates a sense of living through the Nazi occupation of France (1940-44). Interviews with Resistance fighters, collaborators, spies, farmers, government officials, writers, artists and veterans are combined with archival film footage to explore the reality of the occupation in one small industrial city, Clermont-Ferrand. The result is a shattering portrait of how ordinary people actually conducted themselves under extraordinary circumstances.
         In French and German, subtitled in English, the 251-minute black-and-white film will screen via video projection.
  •      UW-Eau Claire and area jazz musicians will perform from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday on the Central Campus Mall (rain: The Cabin of Davies Center). A variety of grilled lunch items will be sold.

     Summer Session Programs continue through Aug. 1. A complete schedule is available from Activities and Programs, Davies Center 133, 836-4833.
