Jeremy TurnerOn Saturday, December 1 at 5 p.m., vocalist Jeremy Turner will present his junior voice recital. All jazz majors at USM have requirements to fill in classical performance. So, while the community has only heard Jeremy singing jazz, this recital is an opportunity to hear a very different technique in music making with the human voice.

Jeremy explains, "Classical singing is more straight forward and strict, while jazz is more open and free. I've enjoyed doing both, giving me an opportunity to work with other styles and develop more musical skill." Professional vocalists are often expected to audition in various styles, so these requirements assist USM students in persuing professional opportunities.

Jeremy has been singing since he was six years old, and began taking formal lessons in college. His first singing experience was with the Boy Singers of Maine for 2 - 3 years. He has continued singing in choruses through middle and high school, as well as in church and community choirs, where male voices are often difficult to find. Jeremy likes the "power of music--being able to hear something and feel it at the same time, and perform it yourself." He admits that music does as much for the performer as it does for the audience.

The program will include a set of Italian songs, a set of songs in English, and a mixed set including French, German and Spanish. With no particular theme, this is a representation of the classical repertoire that Jeremy has focused on in his academic career at USM.

Student recitals are free and open to the public.

Members of the press, and those needing special accommodations to participate fully in this program, contact Lori Arsenault, (207) 780-5142, larsenault@usm.maine.edu. Hearing impaired: call USM's telex / TDD number (207) 780-5646

Silent Spring: 50 Years Later

Public event to recognize legacy of Rachel Carson’s book in Portland on December 6th

Cornerstones of Science, a Maine-based non-profit organization, announced a year-end celebration in recognition of the 50th anniversary of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, a classic in science literature and often named most influential book of the 20th century.  The event, Silent Spring: 50 Years Later, will be held on December 6, 2012 at the Portland Public Library in downtown Portland, Maine, from 7:15–9 pm.

In honor of Carson’s significant legacy to the environmental movement and science journalism, the evening will open with a presentation by Bridget Besaw, a Portland-based author and photographer, Besaw, an “environmental documentarian” who chronicles the interrelationship between people and nature through her striking images, will share her a 15 minute slideshow and readings from Rachel Carson's work.

Following the opening, Jennifer Rooks, host of MPBN’s Maine Watch will facilitate a panel discussion to explore the impacts and implications of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring then and now. Maine scientists and scholars include:

  • Paul Anderson, Maine Sea Grant - current issues, including climate change and fisheries
  • Susan Shaw, Marine Environmental Research Institute - ocean pollution, health and policy issues
  • Elisabeth Stokes, Colby College - life and legacy of Rachel Carson from the literary perspective
  • John Wise, University of Southern Maine Wise Lab - current research in human and marine health and toxicology
  • Ben Twining, Bigelow Lab - fifty years of ocean science, challenges then and now

The panelists will discuss the legacy of Silent Spring from a multi-disciplinary approach, including scientific, historical and literary perspectives, such as:

1. Scientific: "What progress have we made?", "What challenges still remain?”, "What new environmental issues have arisen since then?” and "What can we do now to address these challenges?"

2. Historical: What was the legacy of Rachel Carson's work on the environmental movement and ocean literacy? What was her influence on scientists, writers and policy makers?

3. Literary: What can we learn from the evolution of Rachel Carson's work - from observation to advocacy - through her earlier books, Edge of the Sea, Sense of Wonder, etc. to Silent Spring.

A reception will be held in the gallery before the event, from 7:15-7:45 pm.  The December 6th event is part of a year-long program to recognize the 50th anniversary of Silent Spring, in partnership with Maine libraries and research institutions, including: Bigelow Labs, Colby College, Maine Sea Grant, Marine Environmental Research Institute, and the University of Southern Maine. 

This program is funded in part by a National Science Foundation grant to the Center for Ocean Science Education Excellence – Ocean Systems, Grant No. OCE-1038737.

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!

December 7, 2012
8:30 PM to 9:30 PM

Little Star That Could

THE LITTLE STAR THAT COULD

Full dome show

(Presented in the memory of Steve Innes 1955-2011)

Produced by the Audio Visual Imagineering Company and based on the popular planetarium show of the same name, "The Little Star That Could"  is an engaging and fun show that introduces your child to the wonders of stellar astronomy.

A splendid star show for the entire family!

This omni-dome show uses the entire dome as the screen for a visually immersive experience.

$5.50 - adults;   $5.00 children

Justice Policy Program Brown Bag Lunch Series:
Sexual Assault in the Military - Film and Discussion

Join us for a screening of the groundbreaking, investigative documentary “The Invisible War,” which reveals the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The screening will be followed by a brief discussion. This event is free and open to the public.

The Invisible War cover photoIn 2010, more than 19,000 male and female service members are estimated to have been assaulted, and the number of military sexual assaults in the last decade is believed to be in the hundreds of thousands. Near equal numbers of men and women screen positive for military sexual trauma. The film traces the powerfully emotional stories of several male and female veterans and features interviews with military officials and members of Congress.

This screening is part of The Invisible War campaign to tell survivors of military sexual trauma that they are not invisible, and to urge civilians, veterans, and active-duty military across the country to hold the U.S. military accountable for creating responsible, comprehensive, and just policies for preventing and prosecuting rape and sexual violence among service members.

More information on the film and campaign can be found at www.notinvisible.org.

If the university is closed due to inclement weather, the screening will be rescheduled for Monday, December 17.

This event is sponsored by the USM Muskie School of Public Service, the USM Veteran's Resource Center, and the USM Campus Safety Project.

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO HEAR
Curtis Bohlen
Director, Casco Bay Estuary Partnership
speaking on
“Casco Bay at USM: Towards
Place-based Academic Excellence”


Friday, December 14th, 2012
11 AM
Glickman Library
Events Room, 7th floor

Please join us after the talk for a brown bag lunch session and informal conversation on ideas raised during the talk.


SYNOPSIS:
Curtis will share his vision on strengthening the relationship between
USM and the Casco Bay Estuary Partnership (CBEP). Part of this strength and service to the greater community involves providing experiential learning opportunities for our students and expanding research and scholarship opportunities for faculty. A stronger relationship also would allow CBEP access to expertise in intellectual realms where their existing structure
offers less strength.

The CBEP is an excellent example of interdisciplinary scholarship – the integration of the physical and natural sciences with social science, humanities, arts and public policy. 

Strengthening USM’s relationship with CBEP will allow us to better serve the needs of the southern Maine community. The CBEP is devoted to protecting and restoring the water quality, and fish and wildlife habitat of the Casco Bay ecosystem, while ensuring compatible human uses. They currently partner with local, state and federal government organizations, non-profits, local businesses, citizens, universities and more.

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!

On Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 5:00 p.m., the USM School of Music will present graduate music student Derek Herzer in his graduate piano recital. The recital will take place in Corthell Concert Hall on the USM Gorham Campus. Derek has been a student of Laura Kargul for two years, since arriving at USM. He earned his undergraduate degree from Western Michigan University.

True to the nature of this performer to walk other than the beaten path, Derek's December 15th recital program will feature more obscure 20th century works than we often hear, including York Bowen's Second Ballade, Nikolai Medtner's Sonata Romantica, George Enescu's First Sonata, and Leopold Godowsky's Passacaglia.

Student recitals at USM are free and open to the public.

Members of the press, and those needing special accommodations to participate fully in this program, contact Lori Arsenault, (207) 780-5142, larsenault@usm.maine.edu. Hearing impaired: call USM's telex / TDD number (207) 780-5646.

"MID WINTER'S EVE AT STONEHENGE."
Friday, December 20, 2013
7:00 p.m.
at the Southworth Planetarium
Admission by donation (Suggested - $5.00)

Twice a year, we offer a Stonehenge program.  "Mid Summer's Eve at Stonehenge," and "Mid Winter's Eve at Stonehenge."    We started these Stonehenge lectures in 2008 and they have proven to be the most consistently popular of all our live presentations.    As we prepare for the Winter Solstice (12:11 p.m. December 21, 2013), we embark on a tour of Stonehenge, arguably the world's best known megalithic structure.   Work on it started more than four thousand years ago and required two millennium to complete.   Yet, we know precious little about those who built it.  They devoted considerable time and expense to its design and construction:  generations of people whose lives centered on a structure they never lived to see completed.   What was its purpose?   How did they build it with such heavy stones, many of which were quarried more than a hundred kilometers from the Stonehenge site on Salisbury Plain.   Was it religious?  Astronomical?  Both...or neither?

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!

Little Star That Could

THE LITTLE STAR THAT COULD

Full dome show

(Presented in the memory of Steve Innes 1955-2011)

A little yellow star travels through the galaxy in search of planets that will give it its special name.  During his journey, this star learns about the many types of stars that live in the galaxy.    Hot blue stars; cool red stars; double stars, large stars and much more.

Produced by the Audio Visual Imagineering Company and based on the popular planetarium show of the same name, "The Little Star That Could"  is an engaging and fun show that introduces your child to the wonders of stellar astronomy.

A splendid star show for the entire family!

This omni-dome show uses the entire dome as the screen for a visually immersive experience.

$5.50 - adults;   $5.00 children
