HELPING IS A CHAIN REACTION: PA ALONG'

Project Community
Visits the Prisons
"Project Community is, to date,
my most rewarding, fulfilling,
and satisfying experience at U-
M." (From a Winter '90 Student
Mid-Term Evaluation.) Follow-
ing are some thoughts from
another student. Laura Vrba is
a Project Community Student
Volunteer this term, and this is
an excerpt from her first journal
entry.
"The Cotton Facility Program
appears to have much to offer
and will be a learning experi-
ence of a completely different
kind, as compared to the other
more conventional classes that
I've taken at the U-M. My goal
is to get from this class an
insight into the world of prisons
and also into the people that live
there. I grew up in a conserva-
tive, middle-class area in this
country and haven't been
exposed to much as far as
crime is concerned. I know
nothing of the world of the
streets and have many stere-
otypes concerning criminals. I
want my mind to be opened and
learn aspects of life, as I hope in
turn they can learn something
from me. The only way to break
down the barriers between
people of different societal
classes is by sitting down one-
to-one and listening to each
other. My view of the world is
very naive and if I can learn
anything about life from the men
at the prison, the course will be
worthwhile in my mind."
Project Community students run
a creative writing workshop at
Cotton Correctional Facility in
Jackson, a medium security
prison. Students can receive
academic credit for service-
learning done at over 30
Chemical Dependency, Criminal
Justice, Education, and Health
sites.
Registration information and
overrides for the Fall '90 term
will be available this Thursday,
April 5. To find out more, stop
by our office at 2205 Michigan
Union or call us at 763-3548.
Hours are Monday-Friday from
8-5.

"Dad a Dutch:"
Three-Day Event Delights Union

For three days, from Wednesday, April 4 through Friday,
April 6, Dada will come to the Union. Founded in Zurich
in 1916, the Dada movement spawned the surrealist move-
ment in art, film, and lite e. In addition to the
intriguing Dadaist vi a ,ecial events will take
place on Thursc:
*Mr. Hen an Kerkwijk, Dutch Writer in Residence in Ann
Arbor, opens the day's events and presents an introduc-
tory lecture at 11:30 am and again at 7:30 pm.
*The Amsterdam String Trio performs at 1 45 am, 1:30
pm, 7:45 pm, and 9:45 pm.
*Bert Schierbeek reads poetry at 12:30 pm 468:30 pm;
other Dutch poets read at 1:00 pm and 9:00 pm.
*Several films by Dutch Dada filmmakers will bJa-
tured.
All of these surreal events will transpire in the rt
Lounge, first Qor of the Michigan Union. This three-
day festival sponsored by Arts and .Programming and
the U-M Ge partment.

Great Vibes at North
Campus Commons
Jazzy sounds and good vibra-
tions emanate from North
Campus Commons from 12-1
every Wednesday. Different U-
M Music School student jazz
ensembles perform each week in
the atrium. Picture yourself,
dining on peanut butter and jelly
(or something that tastes a whole
lot better from the NCC Snack
Bar) and listening to jazz. This is
the way everyone should spend
their lunch hour.

McCoy Tyner to Dazzle the Ark
Toward the beginning of his career, McCoy Tyner spent time playing
fast-moving rocking blues with Ike and Tina Turner and then moved
on to revolutionize jazz with the John Coltrane quartet. He has gone
on beyond that to affirm his role as a master of jazz piano with a
powerful, elegant technique that is among the most galvanizing and
identifiable of any jazz musician. His big band and solo work show
extraordinary artistry and ingenuity, displaying him as a "pianist's pi-
anist."
It was with Coltrane, Elvin Jones and Jimmy Garrison that Tyner
created the racing modal patterns and lush styling which helped to
change jazz forever. The four of them made the classic albums A Love
Supreme, Africa Brass, and My Favorite Things. His most recent
release, Revelations, is an excellent introduction to his work for those
who do not yet know him well.
Coltrane shows his appreciation when he says "McCoy has taste; he
can take anything, no matter how weird, and make it sound beauti-
ful." When Tyner and his trio appear on Thursday, April 5 at the
Ark, we can all hear those weird and beautiful sounds. Along with
Avery Sharpe on bass and Aaron Scott on drums, he will perform at
7:30 and 10:00. The Andrew Dalkhe Quartet, a hot young local group,
will open for the trio.
Back when Eclipse Jazz first began 15 years ago, McCoy Tyner was the
very first artist they presented. This special anniversary-year engage-
ment will include a limited number of Benefactor Tickets, and those
who purchase them will be able to attend a special pre-concert
reception to meet the artists. For more information about these tickets,
call 763-0046. General admission tickets are $16 and $12.50 for
students. To buy them, visit the Michigan Union Ticket Office or Tick-
etmaster locations or charge by phone at 763-TKTS.

mentally aware shirt or some other item of value at the sale sponsored

ceeds will benefit environmental organizations and some will benefit

your appreciation and buy a shirt!

Sackbuts and Gambas Spotted in Union
Arts and Programming will present a special concert this month
featuring some ancient and unusual instruments. The Academy of
Early Music will perform Renaissance-era gamba, and sackbut. This is
not your run-of-the-mill fare, so be prepared for a treat. The Academy
will appear on Sunday, April 8 at 8:00 pm in the Pendleton Room on
the second floor of the Union. To revel in this elegant seventeenth-
century music, and to learn more about the sackbut, we invite you to
come to this free concert.
