Sarah DavisI

It’s the first Friday of the month, time for “Central Stage.” Today, Judy Wagley welcomes MaryBeth Minnis, professor of bassoon at the Central Michigan University School of Music. On the program, Professor Minnis performs a variety of music including a traditional work by Gabriel Pierne, “Full Moon in the City” by Libby Larsen with the CMU orchestra, an evocative duet with Lindabeth Binkley, professor of oboe at CMU, and “Black Lion” by George Fetner an innovative work for amplified bassoon. WCMU listeners are in for a treat!

Judy Wagley is WCMU’s midday host, and is the producer of The Children’s Bookshelf from From the Ground Up! She guides listeners through their weekdays from 9am to 3pm.
