UC Irvine Symphony Orchestra’s Adoption of Santa Ana High School Orchestra Is Turning Saints Into Anteaters

 

UC IRVINE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA’S ADOPTION OF SANTA ANA HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA IS TURNING SAINTS INTO ANTEATERS

IRVINE, Calif., (April 8, 2016) – It has been four years since UC Irvine (UCI) Symphony Orchestra Maestro Dr. Stephen Tucker adopted the Santa Ana High School (SAHS) Symphony Orchestra and slowly, but surely, SAHS Saints are turning into UCI Anteaters.

“This collaboration has never been about developing musicians, it has always been about developing young people who have been valued and encouraged in a way that they can now see themselves going to college, continuing their education and taking advantage of opportunities. Music is how we are connecting with them, but this is bigger than music,” said Dr. Tucker.

UCI Drama explores the price of truth-telling in Ibsen’s AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

UCI DRAMA EXPLORES THE PRICE OF TRUTH-TELLING IN IBSEN’S AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

IRVINE, Calif. (March 24, 2016) – UC Irvine’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts Department of Drama presents Henrik Ibsen’s classic An Enemy of the People, an examination of societal dynamics that is perhaps even more relevant today than when it was written in 1882. At the heart of this story is individual truth-telling versus popular opinion, the ulterior motives of economic interests, and the question of whether truth is ever absolute. In Ibsen’s words, spoken by the play’s idealistic Dr. Stockmann, “Truth shifts. You don’t seem to realize that over the centuries what were truths reconfigure as lies.”
