UPC International Film: Forever Enthralled 

Tuesday March 15, 2011

7:00 PM

Lane University Center 111

FREE AND OPEN TO FSU CAMPUS & COMMUNITY! 

 

Forever Enthralled (Mei Lanfang) - Trailer (hungarian subtitle)
Forever Enthralled (Mei Lanfang) - Trailer (hungarian subtitle)

Inevitably recalling director Chen Kaige's 1993 masterpiece, the international smash Farewell, My Concubine, the sumptuous period epic Forever Enthralled (originally and more elegantly given the eponymous biographical title Mei Lanfang) dramatizes the life of Lanfang (Leon Lai), widely regarded as one of the most legendary opera performers in all of Chinese history. Though a male, Lanfang built his reputation on the basis of outstanding performances as female characters, and in fact, lived out his private life buckling under the weight of repressed emotions.Kaige

structurally divides the epic into segments. The film commences with a 70-minute sequence that depicts Mei's reaction to a letter from his uncle, cautioning him against the dangers of an operatic career; in the years that follow, Mei recoils from social rules (wrought by his chosen profession) that severely restrict his actions. The narrative then moves forward in time by a decade, to a point where Mei has somehow managed to bound over the said limitations and establish himself as the single most popular opera star in all of China. Conflict lingers, however -- present in Mei's repeated on-stage duels with the performer Swallow 13 (an apocryphal character who represents a composite of several real-life figures), whose style is the polar opposite of his own. Kaige

then moves ahead in time to explore Mei's efforts to juggle a second marriage to Fu Zhifang (Chen Hong) and his relationship with his manager, Oju Rubai (Sun Honglei), whose passion for Mei's on-stage craft (and, possibly, a desire for Mei himself) know no bounds. Sadly, a pitfall to Mei's familial security soon presents itself in the form of a young female admirer, Meng Xiaodong (Zhang Ziyi) with whom he lapses into a love affair.

Celtic Crossroads

Sunday March 13, 2011  

7:30 PM 

Mountain Ridge High School
Main Street, Frostburg 

  

TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT!!!

 

It's time to take the stereotypes of traditional Celtic music and toss them aside. Celtic Crossroads revitalizes traditional Irish music and takes it to the next level. The name Celtic Crossroads stems from a time in Ireland when neighboring communities met at crossroads between towns and villages to socialize before the pub tradition began. Blending a mix of inventive arrangements and bass-driven grooves with traditional Irish acoustic music, the Celtic Crossroads performance travels to new territory. Seven musicians play over 20 instruments (including whistles, harps, fiddles, banjos, mandolins, accordions, drums and others) to present Irish tunes influenced by other musical styles, including European gypsy, North American bluegrass, classical and jazz. Celtic Crossroads presents Irish music like never before, set to do to Irish music what Riverdance has done to Irish dance.

 

"Without a doubt, the most exciting music show to come out of Ireland in decades,"

- Frank McNamara, originator of The Irish Tenors

 

 

Jon Spelman Presents "Grimm n' Grits"jspelman

Thursday March 31, 2011

4:30 PM

Lane University Center 232 Atkinson Room

Tickets:  

General Public - $7

FSU Student - FREE!!!  

Purchase tickets from Lane University Center Box Office 

 

The afternoon presentation of "Grimm 'n Grits" will be targeted to an audience of elementary school children and educations from throughout the tri-state region, including students from the 21st Century Afterschool Program in Cumberland. In this program, Spelman transforms the fun of the Grimm fairy tales into exciting Southern rural stories, including two stories: a version of the Bremen Town Musicians, called Jack And The Varmints, and a story called Grass Cape, which is a combination of Cinderella and the old folktale that inspired Shakespeare's King Lear.

 

 

Jon Spelman Presents "Digging into Shakespeare"jon spelman

Thursday March 31, 2011

7:30 PM

Lane University Center 232 Atkinson Room

Tickets:  

General Public - $10

FSU Student - FREE!!!

Purchase tickets from Lane University Center Box Office 

 

"Digging into Shakespeare" explores his comical, entertaining, and often calamitous experiences in performing Shakespeare throughout his acting career. The Washington Review wrote, "He (Jon Spelman) lifts the audience onto the stage and sends them laughingly back to their seats." Spelman will take the works of William Shakespeare and weave soliloquies from his plays, including two from "Richard III," along with a little "Romeo and Juliet," some "Titus Andronicus" for the blood sport lovers in the audience with his own self-deprecating recollections of disastrous performances and the star-crossed love affairs they begat, or vise versa.  He will even retool "Venus and Adonis" as a blues number featuring musician Tina Chancey on the viola de gamba, a sort of Renaissance-era guitar played with a bow. Appropriately, "Digging into Shakespeare" wraps up with Spelman's recollection of taking his daughter, Anna, at age 15 to see "The Tempest," which features one of the Bard's great father-daughter relationships. Shakespeare buffs will enjoy it as will people who think they don't get Shakespeare, or at least, haven't yet.

Tenor jazz saxophonist Javon Jackson gained international recognition when he performed with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. But Jackson has quickly established himself himself as a leader in jazz music and has toured with the Javon Jackson Band throughout the world. Playing professionally in clubs since the age of 16, Jackson met and was mentored by jazz great Branford Marsalis. After graduating from Boston's prestigious Berklee School of Music and later getting his master's degree in music, Jackson became a sought-after entertainer. Over the years, his style of jazz has grown to reflect his influences form the funk, R&B and rock worlds. He often departs from his hard bop jazz and adds a mix of soul/funk to produce a sound that is daring and honest.

recyclemania


Frostburg State University is once again competing in the annual RecycleMania Tournament, and we need everyone's help to recycle the most and take the title!! RecycleMania is an 8-week competition between over 600 colleges across the country and around the world that started on February 6th and ends on April 2nd. FSU is competing to have the highest percentage of recycled materials, the largest number of pounds of recycling per person on campus, and the lowest number of pounds of garbage per person. Below are tips that will help every FSU student, faculty, and staff member ensure a Bobcat Victory in RecycleMania!!

 

START RECYCLING if you haven't already!! Recycling bins are located on every floor of every building on campus. Recycling stations have bins for plastic and glass bottles, cans, and mixed paper (office paper, newspaper, magazines). Instead of throwing your plastic bottle in a trash can, carry it the extra two or three feet to a recycling bin.

 

ONLY RECYCLE materials listed on the bins. Trash or items that do not match the label contaminate the recycling load and disqualify the bag from the competition. In order to be able to count all of our recycling it is CRITICAL that you follow the labels on the bins.

 

GET INFORMATION on how FSU is doing in the competition by visiting the Learning Green, Living Green Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/frostburglglg. Recycling information is updated weekly as we submit our results to RecycleMania. You can find out more about RecycleMania at www.recyclemania.org.

 

TELL YOUR FRIENDS about the competition and encourage them to start recycling.

Earn $ tutoring local kids!

Read to Succeed! is seeking volunteers to tutor K-8 students in reading and math during the Spring 2011 semesters.  Read To Succeed! is a decade-old service learning project directed by the Office of Leadership and Civic Engagement.  RTS! offers FSU students and community members the opportunity to tutor students as little as one night a week and, in turn, offer tri-state elementary and middle school students FREE math and literacy tutoring.  With 4 nights of tutoring at FSU Pullen Hall 149 and 1 night of tutoring at the South Cumberland Library, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in the community, gain important teaching experience, secure hours for service learning projects in your major, and potentially earn $10 per hour through work study.   It's a great experience and resume builder!  Training included. Everyone is welcome, though applicants should check with the Financial Aid office for Federal Work Study eligibility (call 301.687.4301). This is a great opportunity for Education and Social Work majors to earn service hours.  Training workshops will be held.
