I am so proud...
of our quality academic programs and our outstanding faculty. This newsletter is the result of my desire to share recent exceptional achievements of our faculty.

Thank you to all who submitted materials for our first quarterly newsletter.

Ms. Stacy Barelos, Assistant Professor of Music, released her second solo pianoCD, Henry Cowell: Piano Music. Cowell (1897-1965) earned early notoriety in the teens and 20s both in New York and San Francisco. "I chose this music because of the way it pushes the piano to 'new' limits (even though much of the music is almost a century old)," Ms. Barelos says. Several of the tracks on this CD have never been recorded. She will present a "better late than never" CD release and concert at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 12 in Corley Auditorium in Webster Hall. Dr. Cheryl Cifelli, Associate Professor of Music, performed as principal clarinet with the Keystone Winds at the 50th Anniversary of the American Harp Society in New York.
Dr. Joey Brown, Professor of English, has had eight new poems accepted for publication in national literary journals. The poems will soon appear in several journals including Oklahoma Review and Cybersoleil Journal.
