News in Brief

This Sunday, a new concert series will make its appearance on the roster of Lawrence events. The series, called New Music on Sundays, will feature hot-off-the-press pieces of music by both current Lawrence students and faculty. The first program presents two faculty composers and three student composers and performances of both electronic and acoustic music. Since the composers will be attending the performances, the concert series affords audiences a unique opportunity to talk to the composers about their music. The first New Music on Sundays concert will be held in Harper Hall, this Sunday, February 8, at 8 pm. Lawrence women’s basketball coach Amy Proctor appeared as a contestant on the popular television gameshow The Price is Right. Proctor, who was selected from the audience to “Come on Down,” attended the taping of the gameshow with her team while out in California to play a tournament over the Holiday break.Not only did Proctor participate, she eventually made her way to the “Showcase Showdown.” Proctor walked away the victor with a camper and a trip to Hawaii priced just over her final guess of $20,000.
