The first project of this 4 in 1 project, Identity Access Management- is stable. We had to build the base or foundation of the technology structure. This includes a single-sign-on- authentication throughout CSI's various application with just one login.

StageDoor Stage Door Presents "Something Special: The Legacy of RJ Baxter and the Ineffable Power or Radio"

The CSI Stage Door Series will present "Something Special: The Legacy of RJ Baxter and the Ineffable Power of Radio" on December 14.  The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. 

The intimacy of radio lends itself to stories, both in music and speech. For more than one hundred years, radio broadcasts have captured listeners' imagination and emotion, and radio remains today one of the most powerful communication media. Join Jeff Fox at the next Stage Door for a live radio "broadcast," an exploration of the ineffable qualities of radio, of listening to music from the 20s through the 50s and the evocative power of voice and recorded music as connection to the imagination and heart of the human condition.

Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for CSI or high school and under students and are available at the CSI Box Office, by calling 732-6288, at the door, or by going online to http://tickets.csi.edu. Seating is limited to 100 people.

The CSI Stage Door Series, intimate arts experiences where both performers and audience members are on the stage itself, are designed to be thought-provoking and a little out of the ordinary in different ways - whether it's because of the intimate setting, the material performed,  the way they are presented, or the collaborations involved. 

For more information, contact the CSI Fine Arts Center at 732-6788.
