RefleXions Music Series, a project funded by the University of Arkansas Chancellor's Grant for the Humanities and Performing Arts Initiative, has partnered with KUAF 91.3 to produce the new RefleXions Podcast, which is co-hosted by Ozarks at Large's Antoinette Grajeda and U of A Music Professor Lia Uribe, who is also the host of the weekly Sound Perimeter segment on OAL. The first episode of the podcast features Sing for Hope co-founders Monica Yunus and Camille Zamora, who also joined the U of A this fall for a virtual residency. The two then-Julliard School of Music students started the nonprofit organization following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 with the idea that music had the power to heal their community in the midst of chaos.
