Host Lisa-Marie Napoli welcomes Craig Brenner, Special Projects Coordinator for the City of Bloomington’s Community and Family Resources Department. He is a key figure in city projects celebrating and advocating diversity in our community, including the annual Martin Luther King Junior birthday celebration and MLK service project program. Brenner is also an accomplished jazz pianist and composer with several albums to his credit. Topics include Craig’s history of work and music since his arrival in Bloomington; his affiliations with other musicians; his support of and past involvement with WFHB; some of his upcoming musical performances; his involvement with the City of Bloomington’s plans for “Be Accessible” month in March; and, finally, how Craig integrates both the “art” of his music with the “science” of his work for the City. Also featured on the program are three of Mr. Brenner’s compositions: “Brenner’s Boogie”, “Aimlessly He Floats”, and “Backstage Boogie”.
