As the Director of Events at the Kemp Auto Museum in Chesterfield, there’s one question that Lisa Roberts, ’06, is used to fielding: what kind of a car does she drive?

“My clients ask me that all the time,” she says with a laugh. “It’s a 2012 (Jeep) Grand Cherokee.”

And her dream car? Well, she’s rather partial to the 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing that’s part of the museum’s impressive collection.

The Kemp Auto Museum , which was founded in 2005 and opened in 2006, focuses on early Mercedes-Benz vehicles, though there are many other well-known cars like a 1973 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow in the collection. The museum explores at the lasting influence of European design and technology on subsequent generations of cars.

Roberts, a St. Louis resident who studied earned her bachelor’s of marketing at Maryville, is responsible for the museum’s publicity and coordinating more than 100 special events a year.

The sounds of taiko drums resonated through the corridors of the Donius University Center during a recent International Fair to celebrate the many cultures and countries of Maryville students. The event included a special Maryville connection, as not one, but two, of the performers with the St. Louis Osuwa Taiko group were Maryville alumni.

Both Junsei Itoh, ’89, and Julie Wiese, ‘ 06, perform with the group. Taiko is the Japanese art of drumming associated with religious ceremonies and festivities. Performers often, but not always, play on large drums, as they use choreographed movements. “St. Louis has an interesting tie to the origins of taiko,” explained Wiese. Modern taiko was created in Suwa, Japan, a sister city to St. Louis. While taiko dates back to ancient times, it was reinterpreted in the 1950s by jazz drummer Daihachi Oguchi. He began playing taiko drums in an ensemble in Suwa, giving rise to taiko’s modern popularity. Oguchi visited St. Louis in 1986, and later donated taiko to the community. It led to the creation of St. Louis Osuwa Taiko.
