Canadian Brass, An American Evening, Terence Lankford

On the next Artworks, an in-studio performance from the Canadian Brass, students chisel away at the art of stone carving, and IU Ballet's "An American Evening."

This week on Artworks-

We’ll speak with the Canadian Brass about their forty-year history of serious music and serious laughs and hear a special performance live in the WFIU studios.

Also on the program, students at Binford Elementary School get lessons in making art from what is most likely southern Indiana’s most abundant natural resource.

Then we’ll find out how archivists and researchers are preserving recorded heritage at Indiana University’s Black Film Center and Archive.

And finally, a conversation with one of the stars of the IU Ballet Theater’s spring production An American Evening.
