Cut & Paste — "St. Louis Sound"

Authors Amanda E. Doyle and Steve Pick discuss their book "St. Louis Sound: An Illustrated Timeline." They talk about key figures from St. Louis music history, from Chuck Berry to Nelly. They also explain the legendary origins of songs "St. Louis Blues" and "Stagger Lee."

Cut & Paste — IN UNISON Chorus and Robert Ray's "Gospel Mass"

The chorus specializes in music by African-Americans, from 19th century spirituals arranged for 120-voice chorus, to contemporary gospel and pieces by black composers. The melding of black-American and European classical styles is heard vividly in the path-breaking "Gospel Mass" by IN UNISON's founding director, Robert Ray. We hear from chorus members Gwendolyn Wesley and Brittany Graham, and Ray reveals the origins of his opus. Its different flavors are heard in excerpts from performances by Morgan State University Choir with orchestra, Angeles Chorale, Chorus of the Medical School of Białystok(Poland) and a rehearsal of the mass by IN UNISON Chorus.

She'll fill monthly, two-hour sets with instrumental pieces she's writing in response to the art on display at the museum, beginning with Christine Corday's cosmic-minded sculpture collection "Relative Points."

Cut & Paste: Justin Phillip Reed

Justin Phillip Reed published his first collection of poetry ("Indecency," Coffee House Press) earlier this year — and it won the National Book Award for poetry. "Indecency" is in large part a product of the 29-year old's time in St. Louis. His work foregrounds his identity as a queer black man in America, and examines the complex social calculus he's navigated as he earns literary accolades and is celebrated by traditionally white institutions.
