Afghanistan-Indiana, Buselli-Wallarab’s ‘Mezzanine’, Stage Fright

This week on the program: finding fearlessness in performance, the Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra "Mezzanine," and photos link IU to Afghanistan.

This week on Artworks:

Jimmy Canary speaks about an exhibition of photos connecting Indiana University to Afghanistan, currently on display at the Wells Library. Yaël Ksander speaks with Canary and journalist Doug Wissing about how this exhibition came together.

Also on the program, David Brent Johnson introduces us to the latest CD from the Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra.

And playing a successful concert takes more than spending hours in the practice room. It takes fearlessness.  And for some musicians, performing means finding ways to overcome paralysing stage fright.  We’ll hear from some performers who are working to conquer their fears.
