A recent episode of Thinking Out Loud featured a pair of previews of upcoming holiday performances in Mid-Missouri. We look ahead to Jefferson City's Southside Philharmonic Orchestra's weekend performances of the Nutcracker and the Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre's ongoing staging of A Christmas Carol.


Today Paul Pepper visits with MERIDETH LEHMAN, Child Life Program Coordinator at MU's Children's Hospital, about "Beads of Courage" and "Caleb's Pitch," two programs that let children with a chronic illness be children without a chronic illness, if only for a little while. At [4:51] PATRICK CLARK invites everyone to the Southside Philharmonic Orchestra's production of "The Nutcracker," starring Dancers' Alley! You've only got two chances to see this classic Christmas story come to life on stage at the Miller Performing Arts Center in Jefferson City! December 12, 2017

Today Paul Pepper welcomes back PATRICK CLARK, founder of Jefferson City's Southside Philharmonic Orchestra. Patrick is joined by JESUS GOMEZ, a violinist in the Southside String Quartet. He performs a shortened version of a sonata by Handel at [3:12]. Their next concert is this Friday at Central United Church of Christ - watch for details! September 13, 2017

Today Paul Pepper asks DR. CB CHASTAIN, MU's College of Veterinary Medicine, his thoughts on giving a puppy as a present this holiday season. General consensus is that it's a bad idea, and CB agrees, adding, "unless you know that the person that's going to receive the puppy is going to contribute the time and the effort" it takes to raise a dog. At [4:50] DR. PATRICK CLARK invites everyone to the very first performance of the Southside Philharmonic Orchestra TONITE in Jefferson City. Enjoy works from Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and more! On today's show, we talk about how the program as a whole came together in a very short amount of time. December 16, 2016
