Freenform- radio prevents rolling g of the dial

Union office showcases talent

by Greg Baise

V ho says art has to be expensive?
Who says art is stuffy? Who says art
doesn't appeal to students?
Not Shirley Smith.
Smith is director of the Arts and
Programming Office (APO), an or-

ganization that provides low cost fun
and available artistic performances
for the University community. Lo-
cated on the second floor of the
Michigan Union, APO offers several
programs that showcase a wide vari-
ety of musical styles and artistic

Use this handy quiz to find out:


"Where the LSA student ends up
writing a paper for a grade, the mu-
sic student often performs a piece or
sings a song before a jury of faculty
for their grade," said Smith. "When a
student has a jury coming up we are
able to provide them an audience.
Performance experience is invalu-
able, students must do and do and do
to acquire professional ease."
Two of the programs that allow
APO to offer students the perfor-
mance experience they need are Arts
at Mid-Day, and the Concert of the
Month series.
Arts at Mid-Day is held in the
acoustically-live Pendleton Room of
the Michigan Union every Thursday
at 12:15. While most of the per-
formers originate from the school of
music, which provides both musi-
cians and dancers, Arts at Mid-Day
participants come from all over the

Like sometimes you get jockeys
who have a free-form show, meaning

that they'll play anything-anything
by white men with long hair and
guitars. Or you might run into
someone who doesn't take your
request for some environmental
music all that seriously.
But most of the time the dj's are
pretty aware of what's going on. Not
only are there a plethora of free-form
shows, but there is a lot of

specialized programming, including
all kinds of world music. Several
talk shows keep listeners posted and
debate open on a variety of issues.
Students form the backbone of
the radio station, so, who knows?
Your neighbor with the groovy tapes
might be a dj at the radio station.

s. Gilbert and Sullivan are:
a. The last names of Tom and Jerry.
b. The Victorian equivalent of Rodgers and Hammerstein.
c The Victorian equivalent of Calvin and Hobbes.
Z. What is comic opera?
a. Doonesbury set to music
b. two comic operuses
c just like an opera, except that nobody kills themselves
and you're supposed to laugh at the lady in the Viking hat.
r. Which of the following was not written by Gilbert and Sullivan?
a. The Pirates of Penzance
b. The Mikado
c. Attack of tie Killer Lint
4. Major accomplishments of the U of M Gilbert
and Sullivan Society include:
a. staging quality productions from the GGS canon
twice a year since 1947.
b. the invention of the slam polka
c. The most frequent cast parties on campus, including the
Ugly Cake Party and "Sing Happy Birthday to a Waitress" night.
d. all of the above,

broadly," said Smith.
Arts at Mid-Day isn't just run-of-
the-mill either, says Smith. One
story she likes to recount involves
one lunchtime given last year by
Biza Sonpa, an African drummer
from the Congo and an expert in
Congolese dance. Though Sonpa
makes his home in Ann Arbor he
has lived in both Paris and New
"Biza was giving a concert and it
was very loose jointed and wonderful
so we opened all the windows in the



i .


Pendleton Room so others could en-
joy the sounds he was making," said
Smith "It turns out some children at
one of the Ann Arbor elementary
schools heard the music and came in
and listened."
"After a little while Biza invited
everyone to come up and dance. We
had the little tykes dancing with stu-
dents, faculty and alums. When the
kids left they all asked for Biza's
phone number. Arts at Mid-Day is
just like one big family."
This year's first Arts at Mid-Day
performance will feature a newly
formed Hispanic fraternity that also
comprises a singing group. The fra-
ternity, the first of its kind on cam-
pus, will exercise their vocal cords
Thursday, September 27 at 12:15.
Concert of the Month is a one
hour program also given in the
Pendleton Room that begins at 8:00
p.m. and, appropriately enough, oc-
curs once a month. Where Art at
Mid-Day tends to draw artists who
need the experience of performing in
front of a audience, Concert of the
Month tends to book musicians who
are "already in major competition"
said to Smith.
"We get a lot of pianists because
they love our old Steinway. It's a
