The Man Who was a complex, dense production put on by St. Olaf theater Oct. 8-11 and 13-15. Based on Oliver Sacks neurological study The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat, the show was an exploration of several brain injuries, each portrayed with laudable candor by a six-member cast.
Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Dominick Argento, a preeminent figure in contemporary American opera, was St. Olaf Colleges guest of honor on Oct. 9. An array of activities marked the decorated composers visit, including an honorary degree ceremony, an open conversation about his musical experience and a faculty concert featuring several of his works.
When word circulated throughout St. Olaf that the band headlining this years Fall Concert would be the Black Eyed Peas, many posed the question, How on earth did they book a band that big? A lot of hard work, said Mary Henry 06, chair of the concert committee. The Black Eyed Peas just sort of fell into place. Its very exciting to have a band come and play whose songs are on the radio and who is popular now.
