This is A-State Connections on KASU.  I’m Johnathan Reaves.  Ever since its opening, the Fowler Center on the A-State campus in Jonesboro has hosted world-class musicians and performers from around the world.  The line-up of presentations in the 2019-2020 Fowler Series has been announced, and KASU’s Marty Scarbrough spoke with newly appointed Fowler Center director Dr. Marika Kyriakos and with Dr. Tim Crist, who coordinated the events for this year’s series.  For those people who have never before attended an event at the Fowler Center, Dr. Kyriakos described the facility.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.
