Versipel New Music’s director Kari Besharse and assistant director Philip Schuessler visited WTUL on Sunday to discuss their budding classical music organization and upcoming Friday concert. Now in its first season, Versipel New Music is dedicated to presenting concerts of contemporary classical music to the New Orleans area. With a focus on late 20th and early 21st century works, Veripel offers performances of pieces by living composers in Louisiana, the U.S., and around the world.

On Friday, April 3, at Cafe Istanbul, Versipel presents Chicago-based pianist Mabel Kwan, who will perform world premiere works by Besharse and Schuessler, as well as a piece by local composer Ray Evanoff. Also included in the program are new works by Evan Johnson and Rebecca Saunders and selections by Baroque composers Girolamo Frescobaldi, J.S. Bach, and Johann Jakob Froberger. The concert, presented in conjunction with New Orleans-based contemporary arts organization FOCI Arts, begins at 8 p.m.

Here, Kari and Philip talk about Versipel, their own composing careers, and pianist Mabel Kwan. They also discuss their New Music Series, which present concerts performed by a group of local musicians called the Versipel Collective.

A problem with caustic water at Joe Brown Park Pool recently is generating increasing concern about the chemicals that caused the swimmers at Joe Brown to become ill. Amy Stelly, and residents of Treme who care deeply about their neighborhood and NORD facilities, have requested the City to provide list of all chemicals used in the pool, along with the expiration dates. The information is needed to provide the injured parties with more accurate information to share with their medical professionals. So far, there has been no response from the City’s Health Department.

Even though the swimmers began to fall ill last Thursday, a photo of Joe Brown pool, shows that the City knew something was terribly wrong before then. The photo shows the normally clear, blue water of Joe Brown pool as cloudy and green. And gallons of water are being pumped in, in a futile attempt to dilute the polluted mess! Sadly, the NORDC management continued to permit the public to swim in the contaminated soup until this past Monday, allowing the situation to fester for at least five (5) days. Once again, as with Treme, the City knowingly exposed staff and the public to hazardous conditions.  

There will be a prayer vigil at the Treme Center [900 N. Villere St] - Friday April 3 at 7PM. Organizers would like folks to bring their own candles.

13min WTUL News and Views, Access and Empowerment Series, Episode 1 features a local event “Beneath the Womb Veil: a forum on early female healthcare” from the Cachet Arts & Culture Program and the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum.

Rachel Speck, resident artist at Cachet, and member of New Orleans Community Print Shop, poses the question,

Looking at the historical development of pharmaceuticals it seems that there has been a tremendous shift where originally only upper class could afford pharmaceuticals, while lower class and slaves relied on herbalism and alternative practices. This changed at some point, with over the counter medicines and pharmaceuticals used heavily by the lower classes and alternative medicines used heavily by the wealthy. What do you think enabled this shift? What really do you feel happened and why?  

Panelists Kate Paxton, certified nurse midwife, Elizabeth Seleen, student of historical anthropology, working in the excavations at Storyville, and Jen Stovall, herbalist and one of the owners of Maypop Herb Shop, respond.

Welcome to a new series for WTUL News & Views called “Access and Empowerment” that sheds light on the contemporary convergence of crises through the historical enclosure of the commons and the internalized oppressions. I’m your host Nora and I’ll be offering this series to explore what feeds capitalism? Where is primitive accumulation still happening? How do we experience enclosure in our lives? How do we understand the relationship between access and empowerment? Where, and who by, is community being reproduced? What aspects of community are visible and valued? Where do internalized capitalisms show up in today’s movements? How have we come to experience capitalism in our bodies? The Access and Empowerment series by WTUL News and Views will pose these questions by talking with local community members and exploring academic texts.

WTUL News and Views, Access and Empowerment Series, Episode 1 features a local event “Beneath the Womb Veil: a forum on early female healthcare” from the Cachet Arts & Culture Program and the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum. Cachet Arts & Culture Program celebrates the launch of their first in a series of podcasts this morning, visit cachetprogram.org to listen to Hysteria Podcasts Part 1.

Listening today at 4:15pm (Wednesday March 4th), there was a kind of psychedelic song about summertime, but your air logs don't list the artist or title. Any help? Thank you for the good music.

This radio station is run by people whom sacrifice their own time to keep WTUL on air. I believe criticism is good, it doesn't have to be unkind. WTUL has given us years of enjoyment, the DJ's are cool, and more importantly, they play Echo & the Bunnymen when I kindly ask them to.

Thanx for the lousy Rock-on-Survival Marathon that was run last year. Not only did you absentmindedly retrieve my donation, You refused to answer on why I was not accommodated on the donor's swag. This is second radio marathon of yours that I gave to and was gipped. One year my donation was double billed, and the manager said that she could do nothing to reimburse me for the ineptness and incompetence @ your end.
