See ‘Brigadoon’ musical this week

Opera Workshop will present “Brigadoon” at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 23, 24 and 25 in Neumann Auditorium. The musical, by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, features Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas, tourists from New York who get lost on a vacation in the Scottish Highlands. The two stumble into Brigadoon, a mythical village that appears for a single day once every hundred years. Tommy, who is engaged back in New York, falls in love with Fiona, a young woman from Brigadoon.

Adult tickets are $15, and K-12 youth tickets are $5. The musical is FREE for Wartburg students with valid ID. All tickets are general admission. Wartburg student tickets will be given at the door when ID is presented. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the show start time.


More than 30 Wartburg students are involved in the production, and the Wartburg College Opera Workshop is led by Wartburg professors Brian Pfaltzgraff and Jennifer Larson. The workshop runs year-round and is open to students with an interest in singing and performing. For more information about “Brigadoon” or to purchase tickets, visit www.wartburg.edu/musical/.

Wednesday, Oct. 6, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

The shots are covered in full for employees and spouses on the Wartburg health insurance plan. Those who are not covered by Wartburg insurance can pay out-of-pocket or check with their insurance carrier.

Student employment job posting procedural change

Effective Oct. 1, all student employment job openings are required to be posted on Handshake, Wartburg College’s online job board, for a minimum of five days before being filled. (*Exceptions to this rule would require the respective Cabinet member’s approval and may include positions that need to be immediately filled for an event/program due to unexpected circumstances.) The Student Employment Office will be committed to posting job openings on behalf of departments within three business days of receipt of the job posting form and job description. All on-campus job postings are reviewed and posted by the SEO to ensure that discriminatory language is not used and there is consistency in the formatting/processing of the job postings. All students have 24-7 access to view and apply for current job postings on Handshake utilizing their Wartburg login credentials.


This procedural change will:

Uphold Wartburg College’s dedication to being an equal opportunity employer – allowing all eligible students to view and apply for on-campus job opportunities.
Support the College’s latest inclusion and equity initiatives.
Diminish barriers students have experienced in applying for on-campus jobs in select departments on-campus (i.e. positions filled via networking/internally within departments).
Allow on-campus employers to have a more extensive pool of qualified applicants.
Advantageously provide more students with the real-world experience of drafting their resume, completing an application, and participating in an interview in a nurturing environment.
Organ concert to celebrate 25th anniversary

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the installation of Wartburg College’s Dobson organ, Dr. Karen Black, the college’s Rudi Inselmann Professor of Organ, will offer an anniversary concert on Sunday, Sept. 26, at 3 p.m., in the Wartburg Chapel. The organ, which was installed in the summer of 1996 by Dobson Pipe Organ Builders of Lake City, has become an important part of the Wartburg music community.
