EAU CLAIRE — A free outdoor concert by ethnic flutist Peter Phippen will begin the last week of Summer Session Programs at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Monday, Aug. 3.
The show will run from 7 to 9 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall (rain: Schofield Auditorium). Audience members are invited to bring blankets or folding chairs for lawn seating. Refreshments will be sold.
Eau Claire musician Peter Phippen is an international recording and performing artist whose musical focus is on a variety of ethnic flutes, including the haunting Native American flute and the quenacho of South America. He performs ancient folk songs, original compositions and improvisations on his large collection of wood, clay and bone flutes from around the world. His third CD "Book of Dreams" (Canyon Records 1996) includes 11 original all-instrumental songs and an arrangement of "Scarborough Fair."
Also on campus during the week of Aug. 3 are these free Summer Session Programs:
"Young Frankenstein" (1974), Mel Brooks' loving spoof of Hollywood's treatment of the Mary Shelley classic, will be presented via laserdisc projection at noon and 7 p.m. Tuesday in Davies Theatre. Gene Wilder (born in Milwaukee, Wis., in 1935) stars as the infamous baron's grandson, who is inspired to create a creature of his own while visiting his family home in Transylvania. Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr and Madeline Kahn co-star in the 105-minute film, which is rated PG.
The Jazz at Noon series will end at noon Wednesday on the Central Campus Mall (rain: The Cabin, Davies Center). Refreshments will be sold.
"The Naked Gun" (1988) will conclude the Summer Session Films series at noon and 7 p.m. Thursday in Davies Theatre. TV's short-lived "Police Squad" series became a hit on the big screen with this crime-drama parody in which Lt. Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) uncovers a plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth at a Dodgers home game. Priscilla Presley and Ricardo Montalban co-star. Rated PG-13, the 85-minute film (screening via video projection) was directed and co-written by David Zucker (born in Milwaukee. Wis., in 1947).
Spotlighting the artists and personalities of the state as part of the Wisconsin Sesquicentennial, the Summer Session Programs series is sponsored annually by the Activities and Programs Office.
