  • - Frostburg State University student Marse Romero will present her junior recital, titled “I’ll Be Seeing You,” on Sunday, April 23, at 7 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. She will be accompanied by Joseph Yungen on the piano. The recital is free and open to the public.
    Guest artists will include Gregory Hays on guitar, Mirto Dorcil on the piano and Grant Stryckning on electric guitar.
    The program concerns the five stages of grief as described by psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in her book “On Death and Dying” in 1969: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
    Romero, a soprano, will first address denial and isolation in “Gretchens Bitte” (“Grethchen’s Plea”) and “Gretchen am Spinnrade” (“Gretchen at the Spinning Wheel”) by Franz Schubert, which find a restless Gretchen sitting by the window waiting for her love, Faust, to return. Next, anger is represented in “E gelosia” (“And Jealousy”) by George Frideric Handel, then bargaining in “Extase” (“Ecstasy”) and “Soupir” (“Sigh”) by Henri Duparc.
    After intermission, Romero will perform “Come Again” and “Flow My Tears” by John Dowland, signifying depression. Many of Dowland’s best-loved songs are those telling of the pain of unrequited love or of life’s other tribulations, with images of tears, darkness, sorrow and death.
    Finally, there is acceptance in “My Heart Belongs to Daddy” by Cole Porter and the closing song “I’ll Be Seeing You” by Sammy Fain. “My Heart Belongs to Daddy” was written for the 1938 musical “Leave It to Me!” The sentimental ballad “I’ll Be Seeing You” was written for the 1938 Broadway musical comedy “Right This Way.” The song became an emotional hit during World War II, in a country where many loved ones were serving far away overseas.
    Romero studies music under Lawren Hill at FSU. She is a member of Sigma Alpha Iota and has been on the dean’s list. She is a winner of the Department of Music Choral Assistantship, Betty Jane Phillips Scholarship and the Marguerite Witwer Richards Endowed Scholarship. Romero anticipates graduating in May 2018 with a bachelor’s in music and plans to become an opera or classical singer. A graduate of Grace Brethren Christian School in Clinton, she is the daughter of Orvin and Miranda Watson of Temple Hills and Jose Romero of District Heights.

  • - The Frostburg State University Department of Music Opera Workshop will present a potpourri of famous operatic scenes from Georges Bizet’s “Carmen,” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Cosi fan tutte” and George Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess” for its opera theatre concert on Monday, April 24, and Tuesday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. This event is free and open to the public.
    Directed by Victoria Browers, the performance will feature sopranos Marse Romero and Kayla Elsaesser, mezzo-soprano Pateley Bongiorni, tenors Gabriel Harper and David Cook, and baritone Khalil Bishop. Joesph Yungen will accompany the group on piano.
    “Carmen” was first performed in Paris in 1875, where its breaking of conventions shocked and scandalized its first audiences, but has since become one of the most popular and frequently performed operas in the classical canon. It was written in the genre of opéra comique with musical numbers separated by dialogue. Set in southern Spain, “Carmen” tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. José abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts from his military duties, yet loses Carmen’s love to the glamorous toreador Escamillo, after which José kills her in a jealous rage. The depictions of proletarian life, immorality and lawlessness, and the tragic death of the main character on stage broke new ground in French opera and were highly controversial.
    Mozart’s “Così fan tutte, ossia La scuola degli amanti” (“Thus Do They All, or the School for Lovers,” often translated into English as “Women Are Like That”) is an Italian-language comic opera in two acts that was first performed in Vienna in 1790. The libretto was written by Lorenzo Da Ponte. Mozart and Da Ponte use the theme of “fiancée swapping,” which dates back to the 13th century; elements from Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” are also present as well as elements of the myth of Procris as found in Ovid’s “Metamorphoses.” “Così fan tutte” revolves around a bet made among three men: Don Alfonso, the older and more cynical of the bunch, bets Ferrando and Guglielmo that he can prove that their girlfriends, Fiordiligi and Dorabella, are unfaithful like all women. The subject matter did not offend Viennese sensibilities of the time, but throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, it was considered risqué, vulgar and even immoral. The opera was rarely performed until after World War II, when it regained its place in the standard operatic repertoire.
    “Porgy and Bess” is an English-language opera composed in 1934 by Gershwin, with a libretto written by DuBose Heyward and Ira Gershwin from Heyward’s novel “Porgy” and later play of the same title. It tells the story of Porgy, a disabled street-beggar living in the slums of Charleston, S.C., and deals with his attempts to rescue Bess from the clutches of Crown, her violent and possessive lover, and Sportin’ Life, her drug dealer. The opera was first performed in Boston in 1935 and featured an entire cast of classically trained African-American singers – a daring artistic choice at the time. After suffering from an initially unpopular public reception due in part to its racially charged theme, later “Porgy and Bess” gained new popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed operas.
    All selections will be performed in English.

  • - Frostburg State University alum Zoë Hanley, whose doctoral research is focused on evaluating wolf-livestock interactions, will speak on “Wolf Restoration in the Western United States: Challenges and Virtues in Conserving a Large Carnivore” at FSU on Tuesday, April 25, at 7 p.m. in the Compton Science Center room 226. This event is free and open to the public.
    The presentation will cover the restoration of gray wolves in the western United States. The restoration has been applauded by many as a conservation success story, but to others it is a disaster for deer, elk and moose populations. Many involved in the ecotourism industry have prospered financially by money spent by tourists coming to Yellowstone National Park primarily to participate in “wolf watching,” but ranchers in the surrounding area complain about financial losses caused by wolves killing and eating livestock. The presentation explores the fascination with and hatred of the wolf by different groups and the challenges of conserving this iconic symbol of the western wilderness given these disparate perceptions.
    Hanley graduated from FSU with a master’s degree in applied ecology and conservation biology through the Department of Biology. She is currently completing her doctorate in wildlife ecology as a member of the Large Carnivore Conservation Laboratory at Washington State University. Hanley has worked on multiple mesocarnivore projects for the IUCN River Otter Specialist Group and the U.S. Forest Service and is developing research projects involving carnivores in East Africa.

  • - The ‘History in your Attic’ exhibition, at Allegany Museum, Pershing St Cumberland MD, features photographs from the Herman and Stacia Miller Collection, and will be available during Museum Hours, Sundays 1-4, and Tuesdays through Saturdays 10-4, from April 1 to April 30, 2017. Admission is free.
    The photos on display are a sample of the images that were preserved because of the efforts of Herman Miller and his wife, Stacia. Due to the couples' passion for collecting photographs that others felt had little value, we now have unique documentation of events, institutions, and conditions that have shaped Allegany County's heritage.
    The exhibit pairs images from the Miller collection with information on preservation, and on how to read a photograph. It will be displayed in conjunction with the Allegany Art's Council's Photography Month. The Photography Exhibit judge from the Arts Council will present a talk at the Museum on April 7.

  • - Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development will be offering a Dog Obedience course at their main campus in McHenry on Tuesdays, April 4 to May 16, 6-6:45 p.m.

    This class is for new and experienced dog owners and focuses on the training that dogs need for good manners at home and in public, particularly when meeting new people and dogs. The class teaches people (not their dogs) the basic techniques of dog training and allows them to practice these techniques with their dogs in class. Over the course of the seven weeks’ students will learn how to train their dogs more effectively. Please note: not all students should expect to see dramatic changes in their dogs’ behavior over this short time period. They will need to continue to train their dogs regularly for many months after the class is over in order to realize significant changes. Instruction will be given in polite walking on a leash, sit, down, stay, recalls and help with behavior problems. Dogs must be six months old. Please note, dogs do NOT attend the first class on 4/4. Handlers ONLY.

    Instructors Susan and Tom Hertz have been training dogs for more than 25 years. Throughout that time, they have been members of the Capital Dog Training Club of Washington, D.C. (CDTC) where they trained their own dogs for AKC obedience competition and taught dog obedience classes. Tom is a past president of CDTC. After moving to Garrett County at the end of 2005, they began teaching dog obedience classes at Garrett College. Both are certified as AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluators and Susan is an evaluator for Therapy Dog International, Inc. Their current dogs, a greyhound and an Irish wolfhound, are therapy dogs who have worked with children and make weekly visits to Garrett Regional Medical Center.

    For additional information on this course, persons may contact Terry Beachy at 301-895-4700 or terry.beachy@garrettcollege.edu. To register for this course, contact Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development at 301-387-3069.
