Who's on TA(P)? Sarah Bruggemeier, Seryn Croswhite, Karalie Potter, Todd DelGiudice

This week's episode of the Thursday Arts (P)review — where the "p" is parenthetical because we look both forward and back — features the following:

  • Sarah Brueggemeier, a music specialist at Frances Scott Elementary in Spokane. She talks about the school’s Arts Gala event tonight (March 16). The annual event features interactive activities and performances for students and their families.
  • Seryn Croswhite and Karalie Potter, two Poetry Out Loud regional finalists from different schools in Rathdrum, ID. The two high-schoolers are headed to the Idaho State Poetry Out Loud final in Garden City on March 18 to compete for a spot at the national level.
  • Woodwind musician and jazz artist Todd DelGiudice, who spoke to our Friday Afternoon Jazz host Rachel Bade-McMurphy ahead of his appearance with the Spokane Jazz Orchestra last weekend to perform the music of the Beatles at the Bing Crosby Theater. In this excerpt, Todd talks to Rachel about his album Human Element.

The Thursday Arts (P)review airs every Thursday at 12pm on KPBX with a roundup of arts-related news and information from across the Inland Northwest.
