How does a musician reach deep within to discover the language of a musical moment? This answer to this question is revealed in Saxophone and Piano: A Conversation.
Producer/director Bob Albers takes viewers inside the minds of three MSU College of Music musicians as they explore this question. A side excursion explores the connection between the musical moment and the instant the racquet strikes the ball in tennis.
The program airs Sunday, October 28, at 10:30 p.m. and Wednesday, November 21, at 4:30 p.m., on WKAR World.

Approximately 60 community members attended WKAR's Community Cinema screening of "As Goes Janesville" on October 18, and engaged in a discussion with four guests who addressed the similarities and differences of the issues presented in the film and those in Lansing when the General Motors plant threatened to close.
The Independent Lens film followed the events in Janesville, Wisconsin after the city's GM plant closed. Lansing faced this situation as well, but the GM plant in Lansing remained open, if reduced in scope.
