  • - On December 7, 1941 at 7:55AM (local time), "a date that will live in infamy," nearly 200 Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, long considered the US "Gibraltar of the Pacific." The raid, which lasted little more than one hour, left nearly 3,000 dead. Almost the entire US Pacific Fleet was at anchor there, and few ships escaped damage. Several were sunk or disabled, while 200 US aircraft on the ground were destroyed. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought about immediate US entry into WWII, a declaration of war being requested by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and approved by Congress December 8, 1941.

  • - The Frostburg State University Chorale and Chamber Singers will present their fall choral concert, “The Season of Joy Through Musical Meanderings,” on Friday, Dec. 9, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. The concert will feature many works examining music as inspiration for life’s journey through love, happiness, sadness, the seasons, everyday life and death.
    Under the direction of Dr. James Reddan, and accompanied by Joseph Yungen, the University Chorale will begin the concert with a South African call and response, “Hlohonolofatsa,” arranged by Daniel Jackson, featuring a procession with use of the djembe and conga drums, followed by the traditional “Carol of the Bells,” a popular Christmas carol by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych. These opening pieces will be followed by “Glow” by Eric Whitacre; “Ride on King Jesus,” arranged by Moses Hogan; “J’entends le moulin” by Donald Patriquin; and “Lux Beatissima” by Joshua Rist. The well-known text of the opera “John Brown” is then featured in Kirke Mechem’s “Blow Ye the Trumpet.” The chorale will finish its performance with Michael Englehardt’s “Gaudete,” featuring the choir accompanied by FSU percussion students.
    The FSU Chamber Singers will perform the second half of the concert, including a varied repertoire of choral works that begins with “Hard Times Come Again No More” by Stephen Foster, arranged by Keller. This will be followed by “Dieu, qui la fait” by Claude Debussy and the Czech folk song “Jede sedlák” by Jaroslav Krček. Both of these pieces examine love in everyday life from two very different perspectives. These will be followed by “My Spirit Sang All Day” by Gerald Finzi and “Verbum caro factum est” by Hans Leo Hassler. Following this will be “Sleep,” also by Whitacre. The text examines sleep in literal and metaphorical meanings and the relationship among many emotions. The ensemble will finish the evening with a performance of “O Magnum Mysterium” (“O Great Mystery”) by Moreten Lauridsen, a composition meant to depict the profound joy displayed and felt on a deep personal level during the season.
    Tickets can be purchased at the door (cash only) and are $10 for general admission, $5 for seniors, $3 for students and free for children 12 and younger.

  • - Join together this holiday season in a toast to human kindness as Frostburg State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Directed by Chris McCabe, this family-friendly production will take place Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2 and 3, and Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 8 to 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Drama Theatre of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. Matinee performances will be held on two Sundays, Dec. 4 and 11, at 2 p.m.
    After being visited by ghosts from his past, present and future, the notoriously grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge has a true meaning-of-life question on his hands. Should he continue to live as a wretched miser or join the world around him as a decent, caring human being?
    Adapted from Dickens’ novel by Tony Reich, an ensemble cast will play such memorable characters as Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the Christmas Spirits. “A Christmas Carol” is the perfect gift for families and friends to enjoy together.

  • - Help inspire the children of Western Maryland with some of your favorite stories during the 2016 Holiday Book Giveaway, a Frostburg State University Center for Literary Arts program. Through Friday, Dec. 9, CLA, in partnership with Toys for Tots and the Family Crisis Resource Center, is collecting new and like-new children’s books to distribute to kids of all ages, from newborns to teenagers, across Western Maryland.
    “The stories people fall in love with as children can make a lifelong impact. From ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ to ‘The Velveteen Rabbit’ and countless others, children’s literature sends kids on grand adventures of the mind to explore fascinating new places, concepts and cultures,” said Jennifer Browne, CLA’s director. “The gift of books offers children inspiration and possibilities.”
    CLA seeks beloved picture books, beginner chapter books, young adult novels and everything in between. Parents at FCRC will be able to select books for their children, so donated books should not be gift wrapped.
    Books can be donated in the Center for Literary Arts at 22 E. Main St., Main Street Books at 2 E. Main St. and on the Frostburg campus in Dunkle Hall room 312 or the Ort Library.
    The 2016 Holiday Book Giveaway is sponsored in part by FSU’s Office of the President, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Office of the Provost, ASTAR! AmeriCorps, the Maryland State Arts Council and the Allegany Arts Council.
    For more information about the book giveaway, contact the Center for Literary Arts at cla@frostburg.edu or 301-687-4340.
