Grammy Winner Bill Harley '77 Featured in The Boston Globe
Recent Grammy winner Bill Harley '77 was featured in a Boston Globe article (3/9/07) about his life as a children's entertainer. Harley's "Blah, Blah, Blah ...

Professor Norton to Present at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival
Dance faculty member Leslie Norton, with ballet celebrity Frederic Franklin, will appear on July 13, 2007 at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in Becket, MA as part of Jacob's Pillow's "Author Event Series," a series also known as "Pillowtalks." With the assistance of Mr. Franklin, Professor Norton has authored a book entitled Frederic Franklin: A Biography of the Ballet Star. The book will be published by McFarland & Co., Inc. in June of this year. A booksigning will follow the presentation and interviews of Mr. Franklin and Professor Norton. Mr. Franklin was a legendary star with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo from 1938-57. Subsequently, he was a prolific ballet master, staging the Ballet Russe classics for major ballet companies throughout North America and Europe. Remarkably, at the age of ninety-three, he continues to revive historically important twentieth-century ballets (most recently, for England's Royal Ballet) and to perform principal character roles with American Ballet Theatre. Jacob's Pillow ranks as one of the most acclaimed and prestigious dance festivals in the world. During its ten-week summer season, it books ballet and modern companies of lofty international renown and attracts tens of thousands of dance enthusiasts. The date for the Franklin/Norton presentation coincides with a Jacob's Pillow performance by the Royal Danish Ballet of Copenhagen, so there should be a large collection of balletomanes onsite.
