Cosmosis with University Singers and Wind Ensemble

In Cosmosis, by Susan Botti, the final 2013 SOAC FOCUS Series Event, musicians and scientists explored how failure could empower us to pursue knowledge and success.

The three-part event took place in Lagerquist on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 8 pm. The performance used projected images on the walls next to the glorious Gottfried and Mary Fuchs organ and concluded with a musically inspired science lab with PLU science professors Brett Underwood and Justin Lytle. 

A Passion for Bagpipes - Sam Horn '15

Horn, who began playing the bagpipe at the age of 11, has been forced by the demands of collegiate life, to ease up on the time he can allot to playing. “Going to college has really limited me in my ability to practice,” he says, in the same way someone might describe having not seen a good friend in a long time. As the kicker for PLU’s football team, sports writer for the Mooring Mast, tubist in PLU’s Wind Ensemble, and a full-time student majoring in communications, he stays busy. 

In 2008, Horn, was a member of a Northwest Junior Pipe Band from Shorecrest, Wash., that placed fifth in the World Bagpipe Championships. Teams from not only Scotland, but various other countries–Canada, Turkey, Iran, and New Zealand, to name a few–competed by playing a series of pieces as a collective.
