Page Series presents Irish band Danú March 10

Just in time to gear up for Saint Patrick’s Day, Danú will present a spirited musical and cultural journey through Celtic history on Wednesday, March 10, as part of the Page Series. This event will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Page Theatre.

Hailing from County Waterford, Ireland, Danú has received worldwide acclaim. Named the Best Traditional Live Act by Irish Music Magazine and praised for their “precise, spirited musicianship” by the Washington Post, this septet gets raves for its fresh, dynamic take on Irish traditional music. A lively group on stage, Danú — named for the mother of all ancient Irish gods — features gorgeous vocals paired with accordion, fiddle, bouzouki, bodhran, guitar, uilleann pipes, flute and whistles.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for students and seniors and are available at the SMU Box Office, Ext.1715, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday or online at

Make your evening an event and enjoy a pre-show Irish-themed dinner catered by Chartwells in the nearby President’s Room. Tickets are $22 for adults and $14 for children and seating begins at 6 p.m.

Support for the performance by Danu is provided in part by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008, and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Student production ‘Talking With …’ is March 4-8

A collection of 11 quirky female characters will take the stage Thursday through Monday, March 4-8, as the Department of Theatre and Dance presents “Talking With …” The production, under the direction of Dr. Gary Diomandes, begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Valéncia Academy Theatre, located at 10th and Vila streets.

Written by Jane Martin, “Talking With …” features 11 very different women including: a young woman who tests her Christian faith by handling poisonous snakes; a baton twirler who sees the face of Jesus 30 feet in the air; a destitute woman who wants to live in McDonald’s, where the sick are cured by Big Macs and no one ever dies; and a housewife who escapes to Oz every day.

They make us laugh and they make us think. And even when their challenges and crises appear larger than life, the characters embody universal issues: unbearable loneliness, crises of confidence, bereavement, loss of hope and struggles with faith. Their idiosyncratic characters amuse, move and frighten audiences while always speaking from the depths of their souls.

Tickets for adults are $10 and $5 for students and seniors and are available at the box office, Ext. 1715, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday or online at

The SMU community is invited to learn about the College of Saint Teresa, life coaching, spiritual partners and many other ways in which OSF’s Ministry of Education has touched and improved the lives of thousands in Minnesota. A reception follows. The event will run 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 2, in the Common Room.

• All members of the SMU community are invited to celebrate 40 years of women students at Saint Mary’s at the annual Women’s History Month reception from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, March 11 in the Toner Student Center Lounge.

Each March, Saint Mary’s joins groups from across the Untied States in honoring women through Women’s History Month activities and celebrations. The national theme in 2010 is a reprise of the first national theme “Write Women Back into History” and, as such, it fits well in honoring the women students at SMU since 1969-1970, the year that SMU became a coeducational college.

Good food, good music, good conversation, historical displays and door prizes will enhance the opportunity to honor the first women students at Saint Mary’s and to remember their contributions as well as the contributions of all women to the vitality of SMU.

Women alumnae from 1969-70 until the present have been invited to submit their written recollections and reflections on their college experience. SMU photographs and other memorabilia from 1970-2010 will also be on display at the reception.

These event are part of a series of spring events that are being held to commemorate and celebrate the 40th anniversary of women at Saint Mary’s.

SMU offers ‘Tri Swimming’ clinic March 1 – June 9

Saint Mary’s is offering “Tri Swimming,” an open-water swim training and triathlon clinic March 1 through June 9. This clinic is for beginning or advanced swimmers who are looking for a swim clinic to complement their triathlon training goals.

Many people are hesitant about triathlons because they lack confidence in their swimming abilities. This course is designed to complement the already-training tri-athlete’s workout, and also to encourage those who are intimidated by swimming, especially in open water. Participants will build skills, techniques, confidence and endurance for their next triathlon or open-water experience.

Specific open-water swimming drills, activities and simulations are planned. Participants will have an opportunity to see themselves through the use of an underwater video camera. As the weather gets warmer, the group will go outside for an open-water swim.

Every other Saturday, participants will learn about the running, cycling and transition portions of triathlons. Also during the Saturday clinics, self-maintenance and bike maintenance issues will be discussed. Participants will also have the opportunity to ride the Trinona course and run outdoors.

Athletes must be 18 or older and able to swim one length of the pool without the assistance of a flotation device.

The group meets three days a week, Monday from 6 to 7:15 p.m., Wednesday from 6 to 7:15 p.m. and Saturday from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Every other Saturday, the clinic runs 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Out-of-pool time may vary according to the activity. The clinic will be held at the eight-lane Jules Gernes Pool at Saint Mary’s. Instructors are Jami Severson, assistant swimming coach at SMU with competitive and open-water swimming experience, and Robyn Wangberg, professor of physics and an IronMan Hawaii qualifier and participant.
