Kirsten Day's essay "Classics Rewritten in Stone: The Art of Anita Huffington" was published in the spring 2010 issue of the American Philological Association's "Amphora." This essay is an examination of the influence of Classical mythology on the life and art of a prominent contemporary artist, which research she initially presented at the Southwest Texas Popular/American Culture Association Conference in February of 2007.

Adam Parboosingh designed the lighting and projections for The Curtain Box's production of W;t by Margaret Edson at the East Davenport Village Theatre.  This production was directed by Broadway director and Augie grad Philip Wm. Mckinley. Student Ryan Lundeen, class of 2013, helped with the installation of the lights.  This production ended a three week run on August 29 to a sold out show with many Augie students in attendance. 

Adam also implemented the projection design for Circa 21's production of A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline.  This musical review opened September 3rd and runs until November 6.

Janet Stodd, Augustana flute instructor, performed a concert on August 15, 2010, with the Professional Flute Choir at the National Flute Convention in Anaheim, California. The 22 member flute choir was chosen by taped audition.  They met each day of the convention to rehearse together under the direction of Steven Byess and Pamela Youngblood.  Instrumentation in the flute choir included the whole range of flutes from piccolo to contrabass flute.  Stodd played alto flute in the group.  The Professional Flute Choir performed several premiere works and had the opportunity to play with jazz flutist Jimmy Walker at the convention's closing concert.
