    EIU Music Faculty Rebecca Johnson and Magie Smith present a duo recital on Sunday, October 11, 2015 at 2 p.m. in the Doudna Fine Arts Center Recital Hall. The recital is free and open to the public. The recital inclues performances of the music of Robert Muczynski (1929-2010), Malcolm Arnold (1921-2006), Bela Kovacs (b. 1937), Michael Colquhoun (b. 1951), Eugene Bozza (1905-1991), Charles Koechlin (1867-1950), Armando Ghidoni, and Daniel Dorff (b. 1956)

    Rebecca Johnson and Magie Smith are active faculty members of Eastern Illinois University's music department. Their mixed chamber music programs have been heard not only throughout the Midwest (including a performance at the National Flute Association's 2014 convention in Chicago, IL), but also across the world at the Convención Internacional de Flautistas in Quito, Ecuador. They have presented their clinic, “Flute and Clarinet Chamber Music for Young Musicians” at both regional and national conferences, including The Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic (2012). The duo strives to support compositions by new and emerging artists and also enjoys performing and promoting obscure works for their ensemble. This concert is one of six being performed all over the country during the fall of 2015.

    “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War,” a national traveling exhibition that focuses on Abraham Lincoln’s struggle to meet the constitutional challenges of the Civil War, will be on display at Booth Library from Sept. 4 to Oct. 16, 2015.

    Abraham Lincoln was elected the 16th president of the United States in 1860, at a time when the nation was falling apart. By the time he took the oath of office, seven states had already seceded from the Union. The exhibition vividly evokes Lincoln’s struggle to resolve the basic questions that divided Americans at the most perilous moment in the nation’s history: Was the United States truly one nation, or was it a confederacy of sovereign and separate states? How could a country founded on the belief that “all men are created equal” tolerate slavery? In a national crisis, would civil liberties be secure?

    The National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office organized the exhibit with the help of a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH): great ideas brought to life. The traveling exhibition is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the National Constitution Center.
