Each year, Anne Nicholson, host of Arts Scene, looks forward to meeting two members of the current graduating class from the Clinton School of Public Service. This is the 10th class, since the first in 2004. That year, Anne had guests before the course had begun. Four came onto the program: two students escorted by Senator Pryor (Jean Pierre Bekolo and Greg Holyfield) and then two as graduates (Erika Hall and Jennifer Flowers). In the years since, there has been a wonderful mix of backgrounds and countries.

When it was announced this past January that Bob Hupp was to step down as producing/artistic director of the Arkansas Rep, it was "Front Page News" for the state of Arkansas, Little Rock, and all of those who benefited over the past 17 years from the remarkable variety of programs everyone has enjoyed. It is also important to mention the equally remarkable actors that have showcased their talents on the Rep's stages. Ann Nicholson, host of Arts Scene, bided her time and when Bob became available, he came into the studio and gave the interview attached above.

In this episode of Arts Scene, Dr. Andrew Morgan, Choral Conductor at Hendrix College in Conway, AR, comes on the air to discuss his career, as well as Hendrix's upcoming production of Carl Orff's famous cantata, "Carmina Burana."

The following biographical information on Dr. Morgan was obtained from hendrix.edu:

Since the age of four when he sang “Away in a Manger” at a Christmas Eve church service, Andrew Morgan’s life has revolved around music.
