The Marquette Regional History Center Special Exhibit: Logging Marks
November 1—December 30, 2017
Logging was a large and powerful industry that shaped the landscape of our backyards and forests. Michigan law required logs to be marked on both ends to reduce the theft of timber. Rod Smith, education coordinator with the Michigan DNR, collected many of these log marks. Study these logs from around the Upper Peninsula and learn about the logging companies they represent. This exhibit is sponsored in part by the Rod Smith Family. Open during regular Museum Hours and included with admission. Please visit or call 906-226-3571 for more info.

Peter White Public Library, Community Room, Marquette, MI
Have you ever wondered what is really going on beneath the surface of your favorite music? Do you wish you could hear into the music, hear it skillfully? Would you enjoy having an awareness of how music is constructed and what makes it "great?"
Beginning Monday, October 30, retired NMU professor Floyd Slotterback will present a six-session "how-to" in becoming a skilled music listener. Classes run from noon to 1:00 pm in the Peter White Public Library’s Community Room. After 40 years of music teaching, Floyd will share his enthusiasm and teaching skills to help you know what it is you are hearing, and how to organize an appreciation for it.
Becoming a good listener is possible if you know how to listen for and recognize structure. All great music (pop to jazz to classical) is built by the composer out of recognizable chunks of meaning. With no music reading skills, you can learn to hear and organize these chunks.
You will benefit more from the sessions if you have paper and pencil. Bring a friend and "have your ears cleaned!" You will never listen to music in the same way again. The class meets weekly Mondays 10/30, 11/6, 11/13, 11/27, 12/4, and Wednesday 12/6. It is open to the public at no charge and no registration is required.

Call 226-4318 or visit for more information.
