October School of the Arts Events
CSU, Chico's School of the Arts will be very busy during October, presenting a variety of entertaining and educational events, including:
• Two art exhibitions — one in The Turner, that shines a spotlight on monstrous and grotesque print works, and the other in the University Art Gallery that features intimate/personal photographs by Victoria Mara Heilweil;
• A just-in-time for Hallowen theatre production — "Doctor Faustus" — that is a bit scary, a bit funny, and very thoughtful;
• Several music performances, including a North State Symphony chamber concert featuring the brass section, a piano recital with Steinway artist Richard Cionco, and a Jazz X-Press concert with soul-jazz sax master/music educator Brad Leali;
• A talk and Q & A session with Pollstar CEO/Chico State Alum/music industry mega-star Gary Bongiovanni;
• The annual Cowden Lecture, which this year is by Stanford University professor Caroline Winterer and explores the question of what culture has influenced the U.S. the most — Ancient Greece or Ancient Rome?
More information on each of these events, as well as October events presented by our friends at the Humanities Center, is available at http://www.schoolofthearts-csuchico.com/press/OctoberSOAEvents.shtml.
