About the Performers:

Gary Sperl is an Associate Professor of Clarinet in The University of Tennessee School of Music and also the Principal Clarinetist with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Sperl received a Master of Music in Woodwinds Degree from Indiana University and a Bachelor of Music Education from The University of Wisconsin - River Falls. His primary teachers have been Robert Samarotto, Russel Dagon, and Bernard Portnoy.

Mr. Sperl has been active in summer music festivals for the past 32 years. He is currently the clarinetist in the Assisi (Italy) Performing Arts Festival and is also the Principal Clarinetist in the Bear Valley Music Festival, a position he has held since 1986. From 1980 to 1997 he was a clarinetist and bass clarinetist with the Spoleto Festival Orchestra in both Charleston, South Carolina and Spoleto, Italy. From 1998 to 2002, he served as the Orchestra Manager for the Spoleto Festival and from 2002 until 2004 he was the Principal Clarinetist with the Missouri Chamber Orchestra. In addition to his summer activities, he has performed with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, the Buffalo Philharmonic, the Columbus (Ohio) Symphony, the Savannah and Charleston Symphony Orchestras.

Mr. Sperl has performed regularly with the Wild Basin Winds, a professional chamber music ensemble based in Austin, Texas. With this ensemble, he has performed in the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, Argentina and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. He has recorded a Christmas CD with the Wild Basin Winds called “A Wild Basin Christmas”.

At the University of Tennessee, Mr. Sperl teaches clarinet to performance majors as well as music education majors. He also coaches the clarinet chamber ensembles at UT. In July of 2005, a clarinet quartet from his studio was selected (from an audition process) to perform at the International Clarinet Association Conference in Tokyo, Japan. The same quartet performed in Puerto Rico at a major conference the following year. In March of 2011, the UT Clarinet Choir toured The Peoples Republic of China for 12 days, including concerts in Beijing, Xian, and Chengdu.

In addition to his chamber music and orchestral experiences, Mr. Sperl regularly performs solo recitals. He has also performed theConcerto for Clarinet by John Corigliano with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra and Gnarly Buttons by John Adams with the Knoxville Chamber Orchestra.

Mr. Sperl plays Buffet Tosca clarinets with a Pyne PK model mouthpiece and Vandoren V12 reeds.

Outside of music, Mr. Sperl enjoys two passions: cats (he has 3 Maine Coon Cats!) and long distance running. To date, he has completed 17 marathons and 4 Full Ironman Triathlons (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and 26.2 mile run).

Thomas Parchman, clarinetist and associate professor of clarinet at USM, came to Maine in 1984 as a result of a joint search between the University of Southern Maine and the Portland Symphony Orchestra. He holds the rank of Associate Professor at USM, and has been the Principal Clarinetist with the PSO since his arrival. Dr. Parchman holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Southern California, a Master of Music from Northwestern University, and a Bachelor's degree in both Music Education and Performance from Southern Methodist University. His principal teachers have been Clark Brody (Chicago Symphony), Larry Combs (Chicago Symphony), Robert Marcellus (Cleveland Orchestra), and Mitchell Lurie (Chicago Symphony and soloist). As a clarinetist and saxophonist, Dr. Parchman performs music in a variety of styles from concerti, sonatas, chamber music, orchestra, ballet, and opera. He has been a member of the Spoleto Festival Orchestra since 1982, regularly performing with the finest musicians in Europe and the Americas.

Dr. Parchman teaches courses for the Music Education program and music appreciation to non majors. He also teaches private clarinet and coaches chamber ensembles.

IBEX: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

An omni-dome (full dome) presentation about the IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) probe.      Launched in 2008, the IBEX craft collects energized neutral particles emitted from the heliosphere: the "bubble" enclosing the solar system.   These collections enable the IBEX probe to construct an image of the membrane surrounding us.  The same membrane that protects the solar system from harmful galactic particles.

How does the IBEX probe work?    How does it communicate with Earth?

Join us for this fascinating full-dome show about the IBEX probe and its bold mission to explore the solar system's final frontier. 

Show duration:  31 minutes

(Note: show presentation includes a night sky tour, so the entire program is approximately 45 minutes.)

For more information about this probe, visit http://ibex.swri.edu/

Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!

Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!

October 12, 2012
7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

The popular "Eight Planets and Counting" program in Omni-dome format. Embark on a visually fantastic odyssey through the solar system.

  “Musicians  United for Marriage”

 

   On Friday October 12 (7pm), four powerful performers will merge in a spirited concert entitled “Musicians United for Marriage.” On board for this exciting event are Cidny Bullens, Lynn Deeves, & Trina Hamlin. The show will be held at the Wishcamper Center, Room 102, at 34 Bedford Street at the University of Southern Maine, Portland, Me. The event is sponsored by U.S.M.’s Women and Gender Studies/ Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity. Partial proceeds benefit Mainers United for Marriage-the campaign to win the freedom to marry for all loving, committed couples in Maine.  www.mainersunited.org/musicians   

Tickets are free for USM Students with their student ID.  $20 all others.

 

    Cid Bullens is a two-time Grammy nominee with a career that’s gone from            singing back-up with Elton John and lead vocals on the “Grease” movie soundtrack-- to having eight critically acclaimed solo albums. Guests include friends Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Delbert McClinton and Sir Elton. Cid is one-third of “super-group”- The Refugees- with Wendy Waldman and Deborah Holland.

  Lynn Deeves came to the stage via the New England top-40 rock circuit in “spandex and spiked hair.” She has released four independent CD’s and performed with Chris Williamson/Tret Fure, Suede and Catie Curtis. Portland Press Herald says: “…5 star stage presence…this gals’ got a set of pipes…” Deeves was recently invited to contribute a track to the “Pink Album”- a compilation CD to benefit the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition.

Minneapolis-born songwriter, Trina Hamlin attended Berklee School of Music. After singing voice-overs for commercials, she gained the national spotlight with songs featured on TV’s “Dawson’s Creek”, television with Conan O’Brien and radio with Rick Dees. She tours with Susan Werner’s band and has opened for Rickie Lee Jones and John Hiatt. Hamlin’s trademarks are her soulful harmonica-wailings and fun presence.

 This dynamic and entertaining foursome will unite for the cause with joy and power, using soaring harmonies, guitars, harmonica, flute and percussion to create a “joyful noise.”  FMI: call #(207) 780-5767.

USM's Lewiston-Auburn College continues its Monday evening lecture series with guest speakers, free and open to the public. This lecture features Todd Watts.

Todd Watts is a photographer whose work explores environmental change, unconventional printing techniques and image manipulation. For the past thirty-plus years, he has pushed the edges of his chosen medium, recombining the language of painting, sculpture, and film with photography.  According to a review in the New York Times, “The artist's pictures, which look as if they were air-brushed with glowing veils of color, are as gorgeous as photographs conceivably can get.”  His work has been exhibited and collected internationally, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Graphic Collection Albertina, Bibliothèque National, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, and others.

October 15, 2012

Albebaran makes robots. They will be at the Ci2 Lab on October 17th at 11am to show off the great humanoid robots they make. Thier vision states that...

"According to the United Nations, robotics will be the technological revolution of the 21st century, just as the automobile was at the turn of the 20th century. As populations age, rapid changes in demographics are taking place. The ultimate dream of creating an artificial companion to assist humans is no longer science fiction. It is a realistic response to the needs of an aging society.

The convergence of technologies such as voice and visual recognition is leading to a new generation of interactive devices. Nonetheless, although robots are already common in the industrial sector today, there remain major challenges to overcome before robots become true personal assistants.

To provide the robotics industry with the platform, software, and tools to explore and develop the applications of tomorrow, Aldebaran Robotics designs, produces, and commercializes autonomous humanoid robots."

... and Aldebaran is making robots today such as the--

NAO a programmable, 57-cm tall humanoid robot with the following key components:

  • Body with 25 degrees of freedom (DOF) whose key elements are electric motors and actuators
  • Sensor network, including 2 cameras, 4 microphones, sonar rangefinder, 2 IR emitters and receivers, 1 inertial board, 9 tactile sensors, and 8 pressure sensors
  • Various communication devices, including voice synthesizer, LED lights, and 2 high-fidelity speakers
  • Intel ATOM 1,6ghz CPU (located in the head) that runs a Linux kernel and supports Aldebaran’s proprietary middleware (NAOqi)
  • Second CPU (located in the torso)
  • 27,6-watt-hour battery that provides NAO with 1.5 or more hours of autonomy, depending on usage

Check Aldebaran's robots out at: NAO H25

Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!

Great Romantic Sonatas

Laura Kargul, Great Romantic SonatasCritically acclaimed pianist Laura Kargul, of the University of Southern Maine School of Music, will present a program of two masterpieces from the Romantic piano sonata literature on Friday, Oct. 19, at 8 p.m. in Corthell Concert Hall, College Avenue, USM Gorham.

Part of the USM School of Music’s Fall 2012 Spotlight Concert series, tickets cost $15 general public; $10 seniors/USM employees; $5 students/children. Reserve tickets at the Music Box Office: online at www.usm.maine.edu/music or by phone at 780-5555.

The concert is sponsored by Dr. Dahlia and Arthur L. Handman.

The performance will be repeated at The Opera House in Boothbay Harbor on Sunday, Oct. 21 at 2:00 p.m.  Tickets and information are available through the box office at 633-5159, or online at http://www.boothbayoperahouse.com/calendar

Kargul will perform the Sonata in B-Flat Major, D. 960 by Franz Schubert, and the Sonata in B Minor, Op. 58, by Frédéric Chopin.  

"I have chosen these particular works because they so fully embody the mature styles of Schubert and Chopin, two composers with whom I feel an extremely strong connection," says Kargul.  "These are their last sonatas, and they were written within only 16 years of each other.  But Schubert and Chopin are so vastly different in character, culture and their use of musical language that these works seem worlds apart.  What they do share is a profound metaphysical quality, manifested in meditative, highly expressive passages, contrasting with dramatic outbursts of great exuberance and fire. 

"It’s always interesting to hear how post-Beethoven composers handled the sonata, that most classical of forms.  Beethoven’s impossibly high standard cast a shadow far into the nineteenth century. Some composers were intimidated, but not Schubert and Chopin. They embraced their innate Romantic sensibilities and made the sonata truly new and fascinating, poetic, exciting and stunningly beautiful.  Hearing these two monumental works back to back can be enlightening, inspiring, and, most of all, moving."  

Known especially for her playing of the virtuosic Romantic repertoire by composers such as Liszt and Chopin, Kargul has also garnered widespread critical acclaim for her mastery of Schubert:  

"How convincingly powerful and poetic, deeply lyrical and profound, will Kargul’s playing of Schubert's work be judged."  Wiesbadener Kurier (Wiesbaden, Germany)

"Laura Kargul performed the Schubert with great technical discipline and musical organization. She did the truly impossible: she downright sang on the piano."  Hessische/Niedersachsische Allgemeine  (Kassel, Germany)

Kargul is known as well for her informative and humorous comments from the stage.  “I love teaching as much as performing,” says Kargul.  “Audience members really seem to appreciate the opportunity to learn about this art form. Knowing more about the composers and their music vastly enhances the listening experience.”

Kargul has been the director of the keyboard program at USM since 1989.  A resident of Freeport, Maine, she has appeared as a soloist, chamber musician, adjudicator, lecturer and master class technician throughout Europe and the USA, as well as in Canada and the West Indies. Her solo performances have been greeted with critical acclaim in venues such as the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Schleswig-Holstein and Nordhessen Music Festivals in Germany, the Evian Music Festival in France, and the Lesvos Arts Festival in Greece.

IBEX: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

An omni-dome (full dome) presentation about the IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) probe.      Launched in 2008, the IBEX craft collects energized neutral particles emitted from the heliosphere: the "bubble" enclosing the solar system.   These collections enable the IBEX probe to construct an image of the membrane surrounding us.  The same membrane that protects the solar system from harmful galactic particles.

How does the IBEX probe work?    How does it communicate with Earth?

Join us for this fascinating full-dome show about the IBEX probe and its bold mission to explore the solar system's final frontier. 

Show duration:  31 minutes

(Note: show presentation includes a night sky tour, so the entire program is approximately 45 minutes.)

For more information about this probe, visit http://ibex.swri.edu/

Jennifer KennedyJennifer Kennedy is a music education major from Gorham, Maine with a concentration in voice.

An alumna of Gorham High School, Jennifer has grown up in Gorham all her life. She will be graduating from the University of Southern Maine's School of Music in the town that she loves the most. She says it makes this senior voice recital the gift that she can give back in order to say "thank you" for all the years that the people of Gorham have supported her.

After graduation, Jennifer hopes to go into elementary general music while still maintaining an avid participation in vocal performance on the side. This program will feature both classical and musical theater selections; Jennifer has performed and loved both genres throughout her musical career. She has been seen on the stage performing in USM's opera workshop as Mary Warren in The Crucible and Gretel in Hansel and Gretel, performing in the Maine and Boston Musical Theater NATS competitions, where she has won both second and third place.

Jennifer will be assisted by Jenna Guiggey, Christina Zahn, Virginia Hudak, Amanda Bottieri, Jimmy McDonald, Jesse Wakeman, Kellie Moody, and Nathaniel Gowen.

In her own words, Jennifer says "I am truly thankful and honored to be sharing the stage in some great songs with my dear friends and fellow musicians . I'm also excited about my choice for the closing number as Little Women is one of my favorite musicals." She says that people who have seen her perform in the past may recognize a certain reprise that might be familiar.

"A delicious array of food will be provided after the performance. Enjoy!"

All student recitals at USM are free and open to the public.

Boren Awards

Come to this information session to learn more about Boren Scholarships for studying abroad and the application process for this award.

Boren Scholarships and Fellowships, sponsored by the National Security Education Program (NSEP), provide funding opportunities for U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests, and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Boren Scholarships provide $10,000 for a semester abroad or $20,000 for a full year abroad. The Boren Fellowships provide graduate students $12,000 for a semester abroad, $24,000 for a year abroad, or $30,000 for a combination of domestic and overseas student.

Foreign language study in the proposed country or region must
be an integral part of each application. Students should incorporate opportunities to develop or advance language proficiency through instruction and application inside and outside of the classroom. With the exception of French and Spanish, there are no minimum
language requirements. However, applicants must demonstrate a commitment to the language and have a strategy for continuing
to study the language beyond the scholarship or fellowship period.

For more information about Boren Scholarships, attend this information session and visit their website at: www.borenawards.org.

Each Wednesday evening, Chaplains and Advisors from Religious & Spiritual Life offer opportunities for informal conversation on just about any topic with their TABLE TALK series in the Brooks Student Center, Gorham.  Look for the gold "Table Talk" sign in the dining room at dinner or downstairs near the snack bar later in the evening.  Sit down and say hello; ask the question that's been nagging you; try out your latest theory about the meaning of life...  We'll look forward to seeing you!
