For Sister Riley, the teaching of music is more about an education of the soul, and that music has the power to heal and fill with courage those she is trying to guide and teach. Her commitment, and the combination of career tracks that she has pursued for decades, is also about fulfillment. ´´I simply love what I do,” explained Riley.´´ ´´Sister Carole is an excellent musician with a special gift for helping students and faculty by bringing effective processes into fruition. Most importantly, Sister Carole Riley offers extraordinary commitment to enriching the spiritual growth and well-being of our musical community, and we are deeply enriched through her perspectives,´´ said Dr. Edward Kocher, dean of the Mary Pappert School of Music.

As the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame says, ´´Before the world heard of KISS, the New York Dolls, Marilyn Manson, or Ozzy Osbourne, there was Alice Cooper, the original shock-rock band.´´ When Alice Cooper became the stuff of legend in the early ´70s, their shows were monuments of fun and invention. Riding on a string of hits like ´´I´m 18´´ and ´´School´s Out´´, they became America´s highest-grossing act, producing four platinum albums and hitting number one on the US and UK charts with Billion Dollar Babies in 1973. Their utterly original performance style and look, known as shock rock, was swiftly copied by countless bands. Dennis Dunaway, the bassist and cosongwriter for the band, tells a story just as over-the-top crazy as their (in)famous shows. As teenagers in Phoenix, Dennis Dunaway and lead singer Vince Furnier, who would later change his name to Alice Cooper, formed a hard-knuckles band that played prisons, cowboy bars, and teen clubs. Their journey took them from Hollywood to the ferocious Detroit music scene, along the way adding new dimensions of rock theater. From struggling for recognition to topping the charts, the Alice Cooper group was entertaining, outrageous, and one of a kind. Snakes! Guillotines! Electric Chairs! is the riveting account of the band´s creation in the ´60s and strange glory in the ´70s and the legendary characters they met along the way. 1. Language: English.
