Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown we soldier on through another show without David by talking about some dance, some theater, and some music — variety, bitches! First it’s been way too long since we’ve talked to The Charlottesville Ballet. Operations Manager Nina Staeben takes care of that talking about how their upcoming performance UpFront: Satute! moves both the audience and the dancers. Next it’s time to dip into what Leslie does in her free time when Brandon Lee, Kevin Minor, and Chiquita Melvin join her to talk about Seven Guitars opening soon at UVA. It’s an intense and fun interview where black theater people talk about being black and in theater. Finally, it’s artistic collaboration time with The Bridge PAI and UVA’s McIntire Department of Music. Bridge director Alan Goffinski and UVA’s Technical Director of Composition & Computer Technologies Travis Thatcher visit the show to talk about the Bridge/UVA joint, monthly, new music series Telemetry. Alan, especially, drops some knowledge about what art can do, aaaaaand they bring pickles! It’s a show packed full of fun on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
