TROY "Groovin’ with the Stars"
Claudia Crosby Theater
“Thriller” drummer Ndugu Chancler to perform at TROY’s “Groovin’ with the Stars”
“Thriller” drummer Ndugu Chancler will take the stage with TROY students when Troy University’s John M. Long School of Music hosts “Groovin’ with the Stars,” a musical showcase featuring student group POPulus and the TROY Jazz Ensemble.
The showcase will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13 in the Claudia Crosby Theater. POPulus will use the date to release its newest digital production, “Who You Are.”
Chancler is a drummer, percussionist, producer, composer, clinician and educator, and will speak on aspects of the music industry to students, faculty and guests at 10 a.m. Oct. 13 in the Long Hall Band Room. His drumming can be heard on popular recordings such as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and many Santana hits. A native of Shreveport, La., Chancler is an adjunct assistant professor of music in the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music.
POPulus’ “Who You Are” EP consists of six original songs and was recorded at TROY and Starke Lake Studios in Orlando, Fla. It’s the group’s third EP, said Robert W. Smith, professor of music and coordinator of the school’s Music Industry Program.
“The title track of the EP is a representation of being who you truly are and never losing sight of what makes you special,” he said.
The performance and lecture is free and open to the public.

SEACT Presents "Dearly Departed"
Cultural Arts Center
Cost? = $18.00 and $16.00 for military and senior citizen
When the patriarch of the Turpin family keels over dead, the struggle to get him buried involves the whole clan, including the not-so-grieving widow who wants to put "Mean and Surly" on the tombstone. In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, this beleaguered family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the funeral. SEACT presents Dearly Departed on the Cultural Arts Center stage Oct. 20-24.
