The School of Rock: Taking it to the Stage

Students of The School of Rock: Tyler Murrin, Jacob Snow, Jessica Bennett and Jacob Davidson share the stage

The School of Rock in Mason is founded on the principle that the best way to learn music is to play music.

The faculty of The School of Rock is associated with several notable Cincinnati bands such as The Rusty Griswolds, Wussy, Fairmount Girls and Afghan Whigs.  They take students of all ages from the lesson room to the stage by developing their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels.

Gladys explores her new home.
Cincinnati Zoo

Just in time for "Zoo Babies" at the Cincinnati Zoo, the three-month-old Western Lowland gorilla named Gladys got to explore her new home for the first time in public Tuesday.

Kate Olukalns, Zoo Wild Encounters Coordinator, says over the course of the next few months, Gladys will be gradually introduced to the other gorillas, including several potential mother surrogates.

Currently, Gladys is being handled by a team of keepers who bottle-feed her and interact with her while wearing fur suits to encourage the idea of bonding with other gorillas.
