The Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theater's season opened Wednesday, and general director and founder Michael Ballam is live in studio Friday, along with soprano Jessica, and director Valerie Rachelle. The four discuss the shows of the summer: My Fair Lady, Tosca, Kiss Me Kate, and Faust.
On the show this week, I feature the new collaboration from Stephanie Bettman and Luke Halpin, as well as the latest from the talented instrumentalist Jamie Bartschi. I’ll also play songs from new discs by Sharon Goldman, The Pines, and Honor Finnegan, among other talented artists. Tune in and listen this Saturday at 8pm to Fresh Folk on Utah Public Radio.
Utah 4H is celebrating its centennial Thursday through Saturday in Logan. Access Utah will join in Thursday morning at 9:00 on the Quad in the middle of Utah State University, just outside Old Main. We’ll talk with current 4H participants as well as alumni of the program, and chart the changes in 4H over those one hundred years: from agriculture and home economics to robotics and rocket science.
