"The Man Who" had potential

“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.

One more high note for Argento

Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Dominick Argento, a preeminent figure in contemporary American opera, was St. Olaf College’s guest of honor on Oct. 9. An array of activities marked the decorated composer’s visit, including an honorary degree ceremony, an open conversation about his musical experience and a faculty concert featuring several of his works.

Backstage with the concert committee

When word circulated throughout St. Olaf that the band headlining this year’s 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. It’s very exciting to have a band come and play whose songs are on the radio and who is popular now.”
