Distance, illness and weather can no longer prevent friends of Samford arts from enjoying concerts and recitals. A project developed by student Sarah Cole is making School of the Arts events available free-of-charge online.

Cole, the school's arts marketing intern, has posted 12 events at the ustream.com site (follow link below) and will add dean Joseph Hopkins' "Figaro" recital after the Feb. 21 performance. That performance also will stream live at the site starting at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 21.
