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
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. Amazon.com 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
- 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.
