Concert, film on tap Thursday night

A pair of events highlights happenings at the University of Lethbridge on Thursday, Oct. 14.

The curtain is rising on a new at the U of L with the installation of President Dr. Mike Mahon. In honour of the occasion (occurring officially on Friday, Oct. 15 at 2 p.m.), the Faculty Artists & Friends Series presents President's Choice, on Thursday, Oct. 14 at 8 p.m. in the University Recital Hall.

This is one of two concerts the Music Department has planned to honour the incoming president. President's Choice showcases the music faculty artists.

"In preparation for the concert, we asked the President to name his favourite classical music composers. He chose Bach, Handel, and Vivaldi, which is where we got the concert title from," says Dr. Deanna Oye, Faculty Artists & Friends co-ordinator. "The concert features works by these composers and others that highlight what our faculty does best."

As well, filmgoers have the opportunity for a free night out as the U of L's Lethbridge Public Interest Research Group (LPIRG) is screening the film, Gasland, in Galileo's Gallery (second floor, Students' Union building).

Described as a witty and frightening investigation into natural gas extraction in the United States, Gasland begins showing at 7 p.m. and admission is free to everyone.

A discussion of the film will follow the screening.
