Attend a ‘Moody’ Colorado State concert

While the bassoon may be an under-appreciated performance instrument, tonight, CSU professor Gary Moody will attempt to enlighten his audience to the bassoon’s artistic potential.

Today at 7:30 p.m. in the Organ Recital Hall of the University Center for the Arts , Moody will perform bassoon music spanning three centuries, including a performance of Jules Mouquet’s Ballade, Op. 34.

Dr. Moody is a professor of double reeds and music theory at CSU. He has been part of the Breckenridge Music Festival Orchestra and he has performed recitals across the United States.

Admission is $7 for CSU students, $1 for youth (2-17) and $12 for adults.

Interested attendees can contact event contact Jennifer Clary at (970) 491-3603.

Gain knowledge, not stress, from reading

Everyone’s been there: after 50 pages of reading from a textbook, the only information obtained is, well, nothing.

This happens when critical reading isn’t being practiced, but tonight at 7 p.m., students can learn skills to actually process the information they read.

The Critical Reading Workshop will take place in Room 105 of the TILT (The Institute for Teaching and Learning) building, and it will cover tips on how to critical read things from textbooks to scholarly articles.

Event contact Christie Yeadon can be reached at (970) 491-2519 for more information.
