Southeast Missouri State University

KRCU's Mary Mims recently spoke with Dr. Timothy Schmidt, professor of music, at Southeast Missouri State University, who is the music director and maestro for the upcoming production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's, "The Marriage of Figaro". The opera will play at the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall on the River Campus at Southeast Missouri State University, Fri. Jan. 29 at 7:30 PM and Sun. Jan. 31 at 3 PM. 


KRCU's Mary Mims and Clayton Hester speak about the premiere of Hester's new show, Vintage Radio Rewind. The show is meant to be a trip into the best music in classic pop, adult standards, jazz, and more. It airs Fridays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 6 p.m.

On Thursday, Mar. 5, Dr. Gabby Baffoni, Assistant Professor of Single Reeds at Southeast, visited host Tom Harte at high noon for a Caffe special. The two discussed an upcoming visit from The 442s at the next installment of the Southeast Department of Music’s Sundays at 3 concert series. 

Cape Comic Con

Cape Comic Con will celebrate 15 years in the community next April. This year, they expanded the operation by adding an inaugural anime event and another, horror-themed convention. 

The latter, titled “Fear Con,” took place just two weekends ago, with nearly 400 costumed attendees filtering through the Osage Center. 

Con director Ken Murphy says such large attendance at previous events has allowed him to branch off into these single-genre conventions and, by watching calendars and landscapes, says we have a strong local interest.

Whether you’re familiar with the inner workings of a choir or not, you probably know the four main voice parts: soprano, alto, tenor, bass.... but there are several lesser known parts in between. One of those ranges, a male range, is called “countertenor,” and comfortably sits where many female voices sit.
