A Spanish Fiesta with Mark Sebastian Jordan

In today's episode, you will once again hear from Mark Sebastian Jordan, music historian of the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra.  This discussion, just like all of Mark's discussions, is absolutely loaded with facinating facts, like did you know the theme from Chabrier's Espana became a 1950's hit for Perry Como called Hot Diggity (Dog Ziggity Boom)?  Well, that is just the beginning on this Spanish journey with Mark.

What it’s like to be a Ren Intern with Nik Demers

Every non-profit relies heavily on two things:  1) their volunteers and 2) their interns.  Nik Demers came to be an intern at the Ren this summer as the Assistant Director of Newsies, but ended up adding to his resume the title of Marketing and Development Intern.  This episode is inspiring as Nik talks about not only what it was like to intern at the Ren, but why he took on so many roles...oh, and Nik was born in a corn field, too.
