The Muslim Student Association at MTSU will co-sponsor a Poetic Vision Tour concert from 6 to 10 p.m. in the T. Earl Hinton Music Hall of the Wright Music Building.
This national traveling concert tour features “spiritually infused, inspired music,” states www.poeticvisiontour.com. “The Poetic Vision Tour believes that music as an art form should not merely instruct but should inspire, not merely educate, but express.”
School of Music has spent decades providing a stellar education for its students, and its last decade as one of only 140-plus “All-Steinway Schools” in the world has cemented its international reputation for excellence.
“We do our best to help our students achieve the highest possible quality education, which means providing our musicians with access to the best artist-level instruments available," said Dr. George Riordan, director of the MTSU School of Music.
When the Soviet Union splintered two decades ago, one of the biggest U.S. worries was how to ensure that the vast Soviet arsenal of nuclear weapons was kept secure.
The American response was the Cooperative Threat Reduction program of 1992. The U.S. provided money and expertise to lock down and track weapons of mass destruction and make sure they stayed out of the hands of rogue regimes or terrorists.
The program has been hailed as a great success, with thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons dismantled over the years.

Willow Tufano became a homeowner earlier this year. This was newsworthy because Willow was 14 years old. She raised money to buy the house by selling stuff on Craigslist.
I spoke to Willow again last week and got an update. She's 15 now, and her life over the past few months was sort of surreal. She got caught up in two dramas: America's housing market and America's media circus.
Two days after the United States Anti-Doping Agency's release of the evidence it says shows that cyclist Lance Armstrong was part of "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen," the head of the Tour de France has said the world's most famous race will officially have no winners of the seven Tours that Armstrong won if he is stripped of those titles.
