Good-bye to WXXI senior audio producer Dave Sluberski

 
 
It's a sad day for many at WXXI.  Our senior audio producer Dave Sluberski is moving on to greener pastures. He talks about his future plans in the attached audio file.

Click here above to see Sam Sadtler's multi-media presentation of the Rochester-Finger Lakes exhibition at the Memorial Art Gallery. It's Rochester's oldest and - arguably - most prestigious art show.
 
Sam interned at WXXI this summer. He's a staff photographer for Campus Times at the University of Rochester.  You can reach him at ssadtler@ur.rochester.edu.  Thanks for the great piece, Sam!

Ear to the ground

First of all, Eastman Theatre is a MESS, according to Eastman student and WXXI intern Dylan Smith. He poked his head in the other day, and tipped us off to the fact that the School is posting pictures.  Thanks, Dylan!
 
Workers have less than two months to finish major renovations before the RPO opens the new digs October 8th, 9th, and 10th with a performance of Beethoven’s “Ninth Symphony.” The Rochester Oratorio Society will sing the famous ending (“Ode to Joy.”) Members of the Society got an e-mail this week announcing the group has been asked to sing Verdi’s “Requiem” next May with the RPO. This is a significant change. The orchestra’s current schedule lists Verdi's “Aida” in concert May 20th and 22th. So now, as it stands, ROS will bookend the season of Philharmonic concerts.
