WERG-FULL

Playlist: WERG Classics

One of my favorite activities on campus was being an on-air personality for WERG. I hosted an air shift where I announced songs, performed music news updates and even voiced a promo. One thing I really liked was that I was able to voice-track a show in advance so I could fit this into my schedule. […]

Playlist: Sounds of the Edge Office

Ah, the Edge office – she is a merciless beast. Much like the sea, she giveth and taketh away (deadlines and content ideas, respectively). Okay, so it’s really not bad at all, and I don’t know why I’m talking like a sea captain, but things can get stressful around here! Anytime one of us is […]

Salad Days Are Here

Where to start? I guess it’s worth knowing that I’ve been going to tattoo parlors for years watching my friends get “inked” (or whatever lame tattoo lingo you feel like using), and almost every time, I’ve considered getting something. I’ve had plenty of ideas, too, from the Modest Mouse and AbsolutePunk logos to a circus-style […]

Together, we drove miles and miles in a packed van to five different cities, crashing on acquaintances’ couches and checking out […]

Learning the music for Evita is hard. What does this mean for my career as an educator?

This spring at Gannon University, the theater department decided to be ambitious enough to put together Andrew Lloyd Weber’s acclaimed musical Evita. I was cast in the ensemble in this production. After the first vocal rehearsal, I realized that this production features incredibly complex music with insane time signature and key changes. The music also features […]
