Utility work to cause steam/gas outages

Utility work will be conducted over the Thanksgiving break that will necessitate interruptions of steam and/or gas to several campus buildings.

• From Wednesday morning, Nov. 24, until Sunday, Nov. 28, gas service will be interrupted to the Bowen-Thompson Student Union, the science buildings, the McDonald kitchen and the Greek cottages: Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta, Alpha Phi, Kappa Delta, the French House, Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Omicron Pi, Chi Omega and Phi Mu.

The interruption will not affect heat to the buildings. The work is related to the construction of the new McDonald dining center.

• Steam service to Kohl Hall will be interrupted beginning at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 24, until Sunday, Nov. 28. There will be no heat or hot water in the building during the outage.

The steam interruption is for utility work in preparation for the demolition of Commons.

Pianist Lisa Moore to perform in Bowling Green Dec. 1, 2

Lisa Moore

Acclaimed avant-garde pianist Lisa Moore will appear at both BGSU and at the Clazel Theatre in downtown Bowling Green as part of the Music at the Forefront concert series sponsored by the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music (MACCM).

Moore’s first concert will begin at 10:15 p.m. Dec. 1 at the Clazel, 127 N. Main St. A $2-$5 donation is suggested. The program will feature an eclectic mix of music by Don Byron, Brian Eno, Rufus Wainwright and Randy Newman, followed by a performance of Terry Riley’s seminal minimalist work “In C” by BGSU’s Combustible Arts Ensemble.

The Dec. 2 concert begins at 8 p.m. in Bryan Recital Hall at the Moore Musical Arts Center. The program will feature Frederic Rzewski’s “De Profundis” for speaking pianist, based on the letters of Oscar Wilde, and Martin Bresnick’s “For the Sexes: The Gates of Paradise,” inspired by the works of William Blake.

The Australian-American Moore lives in New York City where she collaborates with a large and diverse range of musicians and artists. The New York Times says “her energy is illuminating,” and the New Yorker magazine called her “visionary” and “New York’s queen of avant-garde piano.” Moore has released five solo discs and 30 collaborative discs. Her latest solo recording, “Seven,” has just been released on Cantaloupe.

Moore’s Clazel performance is the second time the college has partnered with the theater. In October, saxophonist Branford Marsalis, in town for the Festival Series, also gave a late-night show at the Clazel, which was attended by about 300 people, said Kurt Doles, MACCM coordinator.

“We are equally excited about having the opportunity to use the Clazel not only to highlight the talents of the BGSU College of Musical Arts but also to help them showcase a greater musical experience to the region,” said Dan Gallerno, Clazel marketing manager. “The Clazel has a long history in the Bowling Green community not only as a movie theater but also as a cultural and arts center; we see this as an opportunity to further honor that heritage.”
