    Dear Charlie- informative and interesting podcast about what was happening at Storrs during the Vietnam war. Earthtones vocal ensemble, a student group that I direct, will be doing a concert of songs from this period accompanied by the UCONN Rock Ensemble. Not sure if some of the information you have can be included but please contact me if you are interested in exploring this option. Concert is Saturday, April 23, 2016 von der Mehden Recital Hall. 8:00 PM. Mary Ellen Junda, Professor of Music.
