Yesterday, April 9th, was my personal blog’s birthday. The website turned three and I always make a point of honoring her birthday by baking a cake. The first year I remember like yesterday. I created a pineapple upside-down cake, but you know how baby blogs are on their first birthdays- a little frazzled and they sure don’t eat much. Technically, the last two years’ birthday “cakes” have been big stacks of birthday waffles, because they’re delicious and so easy to freeze. Don’t look at me like that, they still had birthday candles!
Why am I telling you this? I don’t know, couldn’t think of anything else today.

The Arts and Communication Department will showcase fine art work, performances, and demonstrations during Arts Week 2014 from Monday, April 21 through Friday, April 25, on the East Peoria Campus.
The week kicks off Monday, April 21 at 9 a.m. with a demonstration by the Central Illinois Fiber Artists in the Atrium. This session is the first of more than 30 events scheduled throughout the week, including demonstrations, performances, art gallery displays, lectures, and more.
“Illinois Central College has a strong arts program with a diverse, rich history and offerings in many artistic areas,” said Chris Gray, dean of the arts and communication department at ICC. “Arts Week is an opportunity to showcase for the public both the arts and artists from a variety of disciplines in our department.”
A variety of events are slated for different times each day. Scheduled events include free portraits drawn by student artists; free lectures on a variety of art-related topics (such as “Saving Europe’s Cultural Heritage: The Monuments Men During World War II” and “Photographing Work for a Portfolio”); concerts and recitals by performing arts groups; a gallery crawl; and faculty demonstrations on stained glass, stage makeup, painting, origami, and ceramics.
All events are open to the public. For a full listing of the schedule for the week, visit the ICC Arts and Communication web site at www.ArtsAtICC.com, or call the ICC Performing Arts Center Box Office at (309) 694-5136.
The Philharmonic Chorale, completing its 89th year as a local performing group, presents An Afternoon of Music with the Philharmonic Chorale on Sunday, May 4, at 3 pm, in thePerforming Arts Center.
Tickets cost $12 for the general public and $10 for students and senior citizens. Tickets may be purchased online at www.ArtsAtICC.com or by calling the box office at Ext. 5136.
The concert will open with Haydn’s lively Gloria from his “Heiligemesse” of 1796, and continues with two more pieces from the great masters: the hauntingly beautiful Agnus Dei by Edward Elgar and the joyful motet, Exultate Deo, composed by Alessandro Scarlatti. Also included in the opening section is the stirring and poignant Navy Hymn, Eternal Father Strong to Save. The next part of the program features three rhythmically driving spirituals, including Soon Ah Will Be Done, which starts with a conventional opening but soon kicks into a fun and funky gospel groove.
The concert continues with three beloved American folk songs, including Peace Like a River and a beautiful Irish ballad, Red Is the Rose, which was written by an anonymous poet in County Kerry, western Ireland. It is sung to the familiar Scottish air “Loch Lomond.” The concert concludes with a humorous excursion into the Forest of Loo, and a foot-stomping version of another American folk-tune, The Unclouded Day.
A reception will follow in the studio theatre of the Performing Arts Center.
