Rigoberto Gonzalez, Hunter Diamond, Laughing In The Darkness

This week, conversations with a poet, a multi-instrumentalist, a documentary filmmaker, and a guitarist.

Annie Corrigan sits down with senior jazz major and tenor saxophonist Hunter Diamond to figure out why he’s spending so much time learning how to play the flute and clarinet.

Also on the program,

Rachel Lyon speaks with poet Rigoberto Gonzalez about his work, and asks him to read selections from his book “Black Blossoms.”

We’ll speak to the director of a new documentary film about the famed Yiddish writer Sholem Aleichem that’s going to be screened this week at the IU Cinema.

And a local guitarist joins forces with a string quartet to “conjure up sounds and experiences that are Latin American and Spanish and Gypsy, and really just be a bit of fun.”
