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!

About the film:
"In what becomes a discourse on American life, these overeducated parking 
attendants wax profoundly about car culture and capitalism, seek vengeance 
against entitled patrons and thieves, and make fun of drunken jerks. If the intersection between the status quo and the quest for freedom is their ultimate challenge, could a slab of asphalt be an emotional way station for 

The American Dream?"

Assassins castPerformed as a revue in one act, ASSASSINS offers up nine sharply drawn sketches of people who killed presidents of the United States – or gave it their best shot. The winner of multiple TONY Awards, Sondheim’s glimmering and flavorful score gives a nod to the all-American sounds of Foster, Sousa, and Copland. It remains provocative, innovative, riveting, and timely as ever in this election year. Directed by USM’s Ed Reichert. Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by John Weidman.

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/

40th Anniversary Celebration

Franco-American archives at USM LAC celebrates 40 years of existence

It was four decades ago that the Franco-American Collection, a trove of local French history and heritage, got its start, and the public is invited to celebrate its 40th anniversary at a festive event set for this Saturday, Nov. 3, from 2 to 4 p.m. at USM's Lewiston-Auburn College.

In the spirit of down-home Franco hospitality, attendees will be treated to crêpes and coffee while being entertained by traditional French Canadian “jigs & reels” music performed by a multi-age ensemble of local fiddlers and other folk musicians.

Special guest speaker for the occasion will be Doug Protsik, co-founder and director of the Maine Fiddle Camp, located on True's Pond in Montville. Protsik will share his perspectives on what gives French Canadian music its unique infectious appeal and how this music came to be an important part of the Maine contra dance repertoire which is taught to students of all ages and backgrounds at the fiddle camp each summer. He will also demonstrate samples of tunes of both Quebecois and Acadian origin.

This will be followed by a brief presentation by James Myall, coordinator of the Franco-American Collection, on the Collection's 40-year history, its significance to Maine's Franco-American community, and what the next 40 years may hold for the Collection and the community.

According to Myall, the collection began in 1971 as a history project undertaken by students at St. Dominic's High School under the direction of teacher JoAnne Lapointe. The assemblage of photographs, newspaper clippings, family recipes, etc., soon outgrew Madame Lapointe's classroom, and, after being housed temporarily at several locations throughout the Twin Cities, it finally found a permanent home in 1988 at USM's newly established Lewiston-Auburn College campus. Today, with over 6,000 books and 3,000 photographs in addition to a vast assortment of musical recordings, sheet music, newspapers, scrapbooks, journals, artifacts and other items, the Collection serves as a valuable resource for scholars, genealogists, and anyone of Franco heritage or with an interest in local history.

The Franco-American Collection reading room is open to the public, free of charge, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and from 9 a.m. to noon on Thursday and Friday.

The Collection's anniversary celebration will take place in room 170 of USM LAC, with doors scheduled to open at 1:30 p.m. The campus is located at 51 Westminster St. in Lewiston, and attendees are encouraged to use the Westminster Street entrance. The event is free, with no reservations necessary. For more information, contact USM’s Franco-American Collection at 753-6545 or franco@usm.maine.edu, or visit the Collection's website at www.usm.maine.edu/franco.

Assassins castPerformed as a revue in one act, ASSASSINS offers up nine sharply drawn sketches of people who killed presidents of the United States – or gave it their best shot. The winner of multiple TONY Awards, Sondheim’s glimmering and flavorful score gives a nod to the all-American sounds of Foster, Sousa, and Copland. It remains provocative, innovative, riveting, and timely as ever in this election year. Directed by USM’s Ed Reichert. Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by John Weidman.

Lauren Murphy

Lauren is a senior music education major in the USM School of Music. She has been a voice student of Judith James since 2007, when she was still in high school in Old Orchard Beach, and was also greatly influenced by Jaye Churchill, director of Musica de Fila in Portland.

In her freshman year of high school, she sang with the United States Youth Ensemble (USYE) and toured 7 countries singing a variety of great choral music. She was also a participant in Regional Fine Arts, and sang the role of Adele in Die Fledermaus in both her sophomore and senior year under Melissa Manseau. She has known she would study music since 8th grade, and finally settled on becoming a music education major upon entering USM.

At USM, Lauren has participated in Opera Workshop, Chamber Singers, Chorale and Jazz Choir. In addition, she has played trombone in the Concert Band during her senior year.

As a music educator, Lauren has taken every opportunity to be involved in teaching while a student at USM. She has been an active member of Collegiate chapter of the National Association for Music Educators (cNAfME) throughout her university career, serving as secretary in her freshman and sophomore years. She will be student teaching in the next academic year, and plans to remain in the greater Portland area following graduation.

Outside of music, Lauren is cultivating a tiny farm of chickens and bunnies. She's always had pets, and has always known she wanted to do something with either animals or music, and has found a way to ultimately do them both.

Lauren's senior recital program was influenced by her hobby. She has selected a program of bird songs, in addition to a variety of sacred songs and early music repertoire from a variety of composers spanning the style periods. Her recital will be Sunday, November 4th at 8 p.m., in Corthell Concert Hall on the USM Gorham campus.

Student recitals are free and open to the public.

On Friday, November 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., members of the University of Southern Maine Enactus team, formerly known as Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), will be at the Scarborough Sam's Club to host the Let's Can Hunger Food and Fund Drive in support of Good Shepherd Food Bank.

The team will be hosting the drive as part of its participation in the Campbell’s Let’s Can Hunger Project Partnership, an initiative sponsored by the Campbell Soup Company. Let’s Can Hunger mobilizes Enactus student teams in the United States to measure and demonstrate a comprehensive approach to addressing hunger. Enactus teams will be organizing and executing food drives for urgent hunger relief to empower those in need to defeat the cycle of hunger.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 14.7 percent of Maine households, or approximately 200,000 individuals, and one in every four children are food insecure. Maine is among the highest states in the nation, and second worst in the northeast, for its rate of food insecurity.

Individuals and businesses may support the food drive by donating a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods, such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice, or cereal. Monetary donations will be accepted as well. All proceeds from the drive will benefit Good Shepherd Food Bank.
For more information about the Campbell’s Let’s Can Hunger initiative, visit www.letscanhunger.com.



Enactus is an international, non-profit organization that brings together student, academic, and business leaders who are committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. Guided by academic advisors and business experts, the student leaders of Enactus create and implement community empowerment projects around the globe. The experience not only transforms lives, it helps students develop the kind of talent and perspective that are essential to leadership in an ever-more complicated and challenging world. Enactus teams are active on more than 1,600 academic institutions in 39 countries. For more information, visit www.enactus.org.

David Wojahn

David Wojahn,

Winner of the 2012

Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize

David Wojahn is one of American poetry’s most thoughtful examiners of culture and memory. His poetry reflects political and social issues in American life, usually through significant popular culture events, such as the poem written about John Lennon. Wojahn’s original contemporary poetry made him the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation. Linda Gregerson said, "David Wojahn's World Tree is a book of consummate vision and artistry. Exquisitely cadenced, politically astute, large of heart, and keen of mind, these are poems of extraordinary moral penetration. They are also a joy to read: David Wojahn is working at the height of his powers." For more information on Professor Wojahn, visit his website at www.davidwojahn.net.

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!

USM Chorale performs Handel's MessiahThe University of Southern Maine School of Music will present Handel's Messiah featuring the USM Chorale directed by Robert Russell. The concert will be held at 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 10, 2012 at Woodfords Congregational Church, 202 Woodford Street, Portland. Tickets cost $6 general public; $3 students, seniors, USM employees and alumni, and will be sold at the door.

For those yet unfamiliar with this famous work by George Frideric Handel, here's a brief description from the program notes of Linda Russell, which will be provided at the concert:

With the exception of Messiah, all of Handel’s biblical oratorios are based on Old Testament stories. Most are sacred dramas (actually unstaged operas on a sacred subject) with the chorus representing either the Israelite nation or their foes. Only Israel in Egypt and Messiah stand apart because neither has a plot in the traditional sense, and they are the only oratorios whose words are taken exclusively from the Bible. For these reasons they became the most popular. “The greatness of Messiah,” writes Winton Dean, “derives on one level from its unique fusion of the traditions of Italian opera, English anthem and German Passion, and on another from the coincidence of Handel’s personal faith and creative genius to express, more fully than in any other work of art, the deepest aspirations of the Anglican religious spirit. It remains, nonetheless, an ‘entertainment’ designed to recall the audience to their obligations as members of a Christian society.”

The marvelous solos that weave throughout the work will be sung by the following USM School of Music students:

Marydel Ambe, soprano, is a sophomore voice performance major at USM studying with Ellen Chickering.  She is from New York City where she attended the Professional Performing Arts High School.  While there, she performed the role of Sister Constance in Poulenc's The Dialogues of the Carmelites. She was a guest soloist for the Armenian Youth Ceremony in Carnegie Hall.  

Jane Clukey, a soprano from Portland, Maine, was homeschooled and in high school sang with the Greater Portland Christian School Chorus and the choir of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Portland. Currently a junior vocal performance major at USM, Jane has sung with the USM Chorale, the USM Chamber Singers, the USM Opera workshop, and the Portland Symphony Orchestra. She hopes to go on to graduate school for vocal performance and music history.  

Jenna Guiggey, a senior music education major at USM, has been involved in many performing ensembles including the USM Chamber Singers, USM Chorale, Vocal Jazz ensemble, and Opera Workshop.  Her most memorable experience was performing in the amazing cathedrals and churches of Spain with the Chamber Singers.  After graduation in the spring, she hopes to find work teaching abroad!

Virginia Hudak, a junior music education major at USM, currently studies classical voice with Bruce Fithian and musical theater with Ed Reichert. This is her third year singing with the USM Chamber Singers; she participated in the European tour to Spain in 2011.

Kristen StearnsThe USM School of Music presents Kristen Stearns, soprano, in her senior recital. She has been a student of Christina Astrachan for the five years she has been at USM, and is a music education major.

The recital program will include works by Purcell, Haydn, Mozart, Barber, Bizet, Délibes, and Lloyd Weber. Kristen will be assisted by Kathleen Scott, piano, Molly Massa, soprano, and Justin Roux, Baritone.

Kristen's decision to study music education came after working with Peter Stickney, the choral director at Massabesic High School. She has always enjoyed teaching others and working with kids, especially after having two nieces of her own. She says it's such a rewarding field to help young people find their creative outlet. Mostly, though, it was Stickney's influence, making his work look like it was filled with enjoyment while helping the kids reach their potential.

At USM, Kristen has sung with the USM Chamber Singers for two and a half years, participating in the 2011 Spain tour, and she sang with the USM Chorale for two years. Outside of USM, she has been a cantor and choir member at St. Phillips Catholic Church in Lyman. At Massabesic High School, she was in the choir and chamber singers for four years, and sang at the District 1 festival for three years and All State for two.

All student recitals are free and open to the public.

Elise Aurbach, Iran Specialist for Amnesty International, USA, calls Education Under Fire "One of the most powerful human documentaries I have ever seen... [exposing] an outrage that until now has received little attention -- the systemtic denial of an entire religious community of the right to pursue higher education in their own country."

On Tuesday, November 13th at 7 PM in Talbot Auditorium, a screening of Education Under Fire will be presented by the USM Baha'i Campus Association.  The film will be followed by a discussion including community members who have been directly affected by the oppressive actions of the Iranian government.

Imagine if you could not pursue your dreams of higher education simply because of the religion you belong to. The Bahai's in Iran have been denied access to higher education for years and after developing their own underground education program are now being imprisoned for their attempt to learn. Come learn about what is happening and how you can help your fellow students around the world!

Two Men Ten Suns

Two Men Ten Suns
is set during the aftermath of Pearl Harbor and follows the lives of an American scientist, Chet Warren, and a Japanese admiral, Shigeru Yamakota. Each man battles his personal demons to win the first nuclear arms race. Doubts plague both, but neither can stop as their governments push them to develop the deadliest weapon.

A handful of the world's most powerful men knew of this desperate competition and buried all evidence deep in top secret archives. Some historians believe Japanese scientists were on pace with those of the Manhattan Project and were ready to test. Truman dropped the bomb to beat Japan to the punch.

History has criticized Truman's decision, but perhaps he knew a deadly clock was ticking as he gave the order to destroy Hiroshima. If intelligence had warned him Japan was close to using its Genzai Bakudan (atomic bomb) on an American city, he could not have risked delay.

Two Men Ten Suns is a gripping fictional account of this perilous episode.

 

About the Author:

Jeff Foltz has an MFA in creative writing from USM's Stonecoast program. His first novel, Birkebeiner, A Story Of Motherhood and War received an honorable mention award for fiction from the 2011 New England Book Festival. Foltz lives with his wife Sue in Camden, Maine.

About Guest Speaker: Thomas Lovejoy, Ph.D.

Dr. Thomas Lovejoy

Photo courtesty of Dr. Thomas E. Lovejoy

We are honored to host Dr. Thomas E. Lovejoy as the featured speaker for our 2012 presentation. An innovative and accomplished conservation biologist, he helped establish much of our understanding of biodiversity.

Dr. Lovejoy holds the Biodiversity Chair at the Heinz Center for Science, Economics, and the Environment in Washington, D.C., and was elected University Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at George Mason University in 2010. Spanning the political spectrum, he served on science and environmental councils under the Reagan, Bush, and Clinton Administrations. He was the World Bank’s Chief Biodiversity Advisor and Lead Specialist for the Environment for Latin America and the Caribbean as well as Senior Advisor to the President of the United Nations Foundation. At the core of Dr. Lovejoy’s many influential positions are his seminal ideas, which have formed and strengthened the field of conservation biology. For example, in the 1980s, he brought international attention to the world’s tropical rainforests, particularly to the Brazilian Amazon where he has worked since 1965. He also developed the now-ubiquitous “debt-for-nature” swap programs and led the Minimum Critical Size of Ecosystems Project. He founded the popular long-term television series, Nature. The recipient of numerous prestigious awards, Dr. Lovejoy has influenced a wide spectrum of fields: from science and science education to environmental policy and decision making on a global scale.

Following her talk, she will sign both August Gale and her children's book, Sammy in the Sky, which is illustrated by painter Jamie Wyeth. Books will be for sale at the talk.

In August Gale, Walsh—who has interviewed killers, bad cops, and crooked politicians in the course of her career — takes readers on two heartrending odysseys: one into a deadly Newfoundland hurricane and the lives of Irish Catholic fishermen who relied on God and the wind to carry them home; the other, into a squall stirred by a man with many secrets: a grandfather who remained a mystery until long after his death.

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!

The dreams of a woman living in a fantasy world and a woman living in the past clash and create spectacular dramatic lightning. The fragile and radiant Laura Wingfield is one of theatre’s most memorable characters.

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/

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

Joel Babb is an artist well known for his large panoramic cityscapes and for his large paintings of forest interiors, brooks and streams, and the impressive rocky coast. For many years he taught for the Boston Museum School, and for Harvard University Extension. His work can be seen in public spaces including the lobby of the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA, Baker Library at Harvard Business School, Countway Medical Library at Harvard Medical School. He is represented by Vose Galleries in Boston where he will be having a solo exhibition beginning October 5 this year.  A book about his work—written by Maine author Carl Straub—will be published by University Press of New England this fall.

November 26, 2012
5:00 PM to 6:30 PM
Lewiston campus, Room 170
An artist’s perception of nature is paradoxically informed by artistic cultural traditions. Artist Joel Babb will tell the story of how his move from the city to rural Maine began his rediscovery of nature as a force in art.

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!

November 30, 2012
8:30 PM to 9:30 PM
