The APSU Music DepartmentClarksville, TN – In a brief YouTube video clip, Hannah Collins is seen playing the cello while Michael Compitello taps his drumsticks against different sized flowerpots. The performance could be seen as a novelty act if the resulting music wasn’t so beautiful.

This mixture of playfulness and serious music making is what defines New Morse Code, a music duo of Yale University graduates who are using inventive performances to expand the reach of classical music to a younger generation.

October 27, 2014

The APSU Music DepartmentClarksville, TN – In July, the phone started ringing in Austin Peay State University’s Department of Music office, with callers interested in buying tickets for an upcoming concert.

They were a bit early, since the department’s annual Halloween Percussion Concert was still a good three months away, but the callers knew that for 30 years, the wildly entertaining event usually sold out, so there was nothing wrong with being a little premature.

October 26, 2014

October 17, 2014

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In L. Frank Baum’s hometown of Chittenango, New York, the brick sidewalks are painted yellow and the shops have names like “Auntie Em’s Place” and the “Emerald City Grill.”

This little village doesn’t really resemble the magical Oz, but it is part of the ongoing reinterpretation of Baum’s famous children’s story, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”

That famous work has been re-imagined numerous times over the years, with the famous 1939 musical, “The Wizard of Oz,” the 1978 Michael Jackson fantasy, “The Wiz,” and Gregory Maguire’s bestselling book, later made into a hit Broadway musical, “Wicked.”

"The Wizard of Oz" to be performed by APSU Choral October 21st.
