MPR broadcasts live from Cardinal Club

On Monday, April 26, Minnesota Public Radio did a live broadcast from the Cardinal Club on the Winona campus which featured a performance by the Parker Quartet. MPR host Steve Staruch interviewed Michael Charron, dean of the School of the Arts and chair of the Minnesota State Arts Board; Dr. Janet Heukeshoven from the Department of Music; and Mary Schaefle, executive director of the Minnesota Music Educators Association.

This spring Saint Mary’s sponsored MPR’s statewide music instrument drive, Play it Forward, which collected used instruments around the state for needy music students.
