Eugene Opera is reinventing itself, after canceling half of its previous season due to financial difficulties. New executive director Erika Rauer [rhymes with “tower”] outlines the organization’s new creative and financial vision, with KLCC’s Eric Alan. 

Soprano Renee Fleming is one of music’s most accomplished vocalists, with her accolades including multiple Grammy Awards and the National Medal of Arts, bestowed upon her by President Obama.

Thirty-five years ago, the Hult Center in Eugene opened its doors, forever changing the city’s cultural landscape. In celebration, the venue will host a day of free events on September 16th. Joining KLCC’s Eric Alan to look ahead and look back are general manager Theresa Sizemore, and ticket office manager Marcia James, who has worked at the Hult Center since 1982.

Socio-Political comedian W. Kamau Bell is the host of the show United Shades of America on CNN, the author of the new book The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell, the host of three podcasts, and star of the stand-up special and comedy album Semi-Prominent Negro. He’ll bring his stand-up comedy show to the Hult Center in Eugene on Friday, May 19th; he speaks with KLCC's Eric Alan from the CNN studios. 

Ira Glass has been a master storyteller for over twenty years, as host and creator of This American Life. In an in-depth interview with KLCC’s Eric Alan, he shares his thoughts on what makes for a compelling story, including examples ranging from the power of unstoppable delusions to what it’s like to discover that your mother is secretly running guns into Africa.
