Here is a great article about Vang: A Drama about Recent Immigrant Farmers. It includes some wonderful reactions from people who have seen the show.

Americans, including Iowans, have more in common with immigrants to this country than they may have imagined. That’s the message reflected in the production of “Vang: A Drama About Recent Immigrant Farmers.” The play, written by Iowa Poet Laureate Mary Swander, tells the story of four immigrant fami...

"As they were drawn into the dramatic stories in VANG, our students experienced how immigrants make their way to today's Midwest, create new American lives, and act as a dynamic force in their communities."

"Our audience was very pleased, Dr. Coley’s musical skill is off the charts and his repertoire selection was eclectic and served as a great introduction to a traditionally “obscure” instrument. I was particularly pleased with the way he took time after the performance to connect with our patrons. That speaks volumes of his professionalism and personality."

-John Cook, Westminster Presbyterian Fine Arts Series

"Coley plays the concerto with a dance-like sense of urgency on a variety of non-traditional percussion instruments, including glass bottles and glass and stone xylophones. The result is a crisp, cool, crystalline sound."

We're all kinds of international this booking season! Matthew Coley will be heading up to Alberta March, 2014. So all of you with fake girlfriends in Canada should be sure to share this news :)
