StageDoorStage Door Presents "Intersections: New Art, New Music"


The CSI Stage Door Series will present "Intersections: New Art, New Music" on October 27. The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for students and will be available at the CSI Box Office, by calling 732-6288, at the door, or by going online to http://tickets.csi.edu. Season tickets are also available, which includes admittance to all eight Stage Door productions for $70 adults or $35 for students. 
 
Join the Brava Piano Duo - Sue Miller and Allison Bangerter -  in a concert of music written for two pianists by composers who are still living. Upon entering the stage door, audience members will enjoy a display of new art by local artists. While Bach and Beethoven will always have a place in musicians' hearts, this program presents the work of some of the most exciting new and upcoming composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Highlights include the rhythmically provocative set of latin dances called "Recuerdos" by William Bolcom and Ned Rorem's "Six Variations for Two Pianos" which explores contemplative and rhythmically exciting variations. Commissioned specially for the Brava Piano Duo, this concert includes the world premiere of "Alternance" by composer David Batchelor. Be prepared for an intimate evening of new music and new art. 
 
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. Follow up productions include Untitled., featuring the work of Mike Youngman, Soiled Doves, Inside Inspirata, TBD: To Be Devised featuring Flying Bobcat Theater, and Sentences.

How Much Does a Dental Cleaning Cost?

By Caroline Jacobson on Oct 10, 2017 08:00 am
How much does a dental cleaning cost? What you'll pay for a teeth cleaning varies depends on a number of factors, but here's what you can expect based on your specific situation: If you don't have dental insurance. $80-$100 Between the tools, X-rays and polishing, there's a lot of work that goes into a dental cleaning! 

Anita Tatge

SustainabilityCSI Sustainability Council Quick Facts

Quick facts: Did you know?

1. Photosynthesis is the process plants and algae use to absorb energy from sunlight. They are solar-powered life forms.

2. Most of the oxygen in the air we breathe (50 - 85%) is produced by algae floating on the surface of the oceans (phytoplankton).

3. When plants and algae grow they are removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Globally this amount has been estimated to be more than 100 billion tons of carbon per year.

4. Pop Quiz: What percentage of calories in your diet originally came from sunlight energy that was captured by photosynthesis?

5. Scientists have been working to engineer a "bionic leaf" which can convert water into hydrogen gas to be used as an alternative fuel. The advancing technology of "artificial photosynthesis" also may require the use of genetically-engineered bacteria.

ShakeOutThe Great Idaho Shake Out
It's that time of the year again for the Great Idaho Shake Out. Information can be found at https://www.shakeout.org/idaho/ and is available to  promote the event throughout your respective areas and organizations. Earthquakes are one of the three main natural disasters here in Idaho (along with fires and floods), and ShakeOut is a great way to engage and protect Idaho's citizens. The recent earthquake swarm in Eastern Idaho is a good reminder that earthquake safety is important, even if we don't encounter them every day.
 
The drill is simple, educational, and fun. At 10:19 AM on October 19th, participants will stop what they're doing and take cover under their desk or something sturdy. When the "all clear" signal is given, they will resume their activities. There can be education about earthquakes before or after the drill, and the amount of time and energy dedicated to the drill is up to the people conducting it, but it is a great opportunity to discuss emergency preparedness and taking responsibility for your own safety in the event of an emergency.
 
About 30,000 Idahoans are already registered. Please encourage your organizations to register and spread the word about ShakeOut, https://www.shakeout.org/idaho/register/. Thanks for your time and participation!
