As the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance's Music Alive Composer-In-Residence, Stella Sung has been developing The Book Collector, a new one-act opera that combines the talents of Dayton Opera, Dayton Ballet and Dayton Philharmonic.  Sung returned to the WYSO studios, joined by director Gary Briggle, for a conversation with Niki Dakota about this world premiere event. 

The Book Collector with Carmina Burana will be presented on May 20th at 8pm and May 22nd at 3pm at the Schuster Center.  More information at daytonperformingarts.org

In the course of her first live radio interview to promote the band, Niki’s keen excitedness manifest itself in extreme chattiness. At the conclusion of the segment, the DJ closed the mic and said, “You need to be in radio."  That was in 1990. In 2002, Niki’s radio career brought her to WYSO where she continues to enjoy a love of music and shares that love with the Miami Valley weekdays on Excursions.
