    - On January 21, 2017 we will unite in Washington, DC for the Women’s March on Washington. We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

    The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us--women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.

    In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

    We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all. HEAR OUR VOICE.

  • - CES at Frostburg State University continues its 60th anniversary season with a spring lineup of award-winning musicians and professional artists from around the world. Performers include French songstress Cyrille Aimée, contemporary violinist Daniel Davis, the Buddhist monks of the Drepung Loseling Monastery, the a cappella group The Filharmonic, the Irish musicians of the Brock McGuire Band, jazz musician Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Russian pianist Yuliya Gorenman, who will join the Maryland Symphony Orchestra in a celebration of Beethoven.

    Romance is in store with a LIVE! at StarScape club performance on Friday, Feb. 10, from magnetic singer Cyrille Aimée. Winner of the Montreux Jazz Festival’s Vocal Competition and the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition, Aimée displays her versatility with crowd-pleasing originals and new takes on old-time standards. This 7:30 p.m. Valentine’s Day celebration in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall in FSU’s Lane University Center features full bar service and a club menu. An additional dinner option offering a selection of entrées is served at 6 p.m.

    Contemporary violinist Daniel Davis performs on Thursday, March 2, at 8:15 p.m. in Lane Manicur Hall as part of the On the EDGE club series. With charisma and brilliant technique, Davis and his band offer a performance that takes the violin into the modern musical landscape by fusing elements of hip-hop, R&B, jazz and pop.

    The Mystical Arts of Tibet presents Buddhist monks of the Drepung Loseling Monastery, who arrive in March for a five-day residency endorsed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Events held Sunday, March 5, through Thursday, March 9, include the creation of a mandala sand painting and multiple lectures and workshops on Tibetan philosophy, art, meditation and culture. A public performance of “Sacred Music, Sacred Dance,” which combines multiphonic chanting, sacred music and dance, takes place March 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center.

    The On the Edge series hosts the youthful a cappella singing group The Filharmonic on Thursday, April 6, at 8:15 p.m. in Lane Manicur Hall. This talented group of young Filipino-Americans first gained national attention in the semi-finals of NBC’s competition show “The Sing-Off” and through their appearance in the popular movie “Pitch Perfect 2” as Team Philippines/Manila Envy.

    Traditional Irish music from the Brock McGuire Band is offered in a LIVE! at StarScape club performance on Saturday, April 8, at 7:30 p.m. in Lane Manicur Hall. The band is led by button accordionist and melodeonist Paul Brock and fiddler Manus McGuire and is supported by pianist Denis Carey and vocalist Garry O’Meara on banjo and mandolin. Their performance emphasizes traditional Irish music along with lively arrangements of American old-timey, bluegrass, French-Canadian and Celtic traditions.

    A LIVE! at StarScape club performance from iconic jazz musician Dr. Lonnie Smith takes place in Lane Manicur Hall on Saturday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m. After a 50-year career, this authentic guru of the Hammond B-3 organ is still making waves. National Public Radio says, “You can probably count on one hand the number of people who’ve mastered the Hammond organ in jazz. Dr. Lonnie Smith can claim that distinction and more.”

    The Maryland Symphony Orchestra, led by Musical Director Elizabeth Schulze, presents a Masterworks concert, “A Fifth of Beethoven,” on Friday, May 12, at 7:30 p.m. in PAC Pealer Recital Hall. Two Beethoven works will appear in the program: “Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat Major, Op. 73” and “Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, Op. 67.” Award-winning Russian pianist Yuliya Gorenman, who has been hailed as one of the most exciting Beethoven interpreters of her generation, joins the orchestra in the piano concerto.

    Tickets may be ordered by calling 1-866-849-9237 or 301-687-3137 or by visiting click for details. Tickets can also be purchased at the CES box office on the second floor of the Lane Center, which is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  • - Activities for Life at Frostburg State University will offer group fitness classes Mondays through Thursdays, Feb. 13 through May 11 (with no class on March 9 and 20 through 23), from 7 to 8 p.m. in Cordts Physical Education Center room 168.
    After paying a one-time semester fee, participants will be able to attend the following classes: Fusion with Erica Brinsfield on Mondays, Step Combo with Eve Schott on Tuesdays, Yoga with Leslee Wigfield on Wednesdays and Strength with Brinsfield on Thursdays. For a lesser fee, participants can instead choose one specific night of the week (not transferable to another night for missed classes).
    The fusion workout incorporates elements of barre, Pilates and yoga into a strength-and-stretch session. Step combo employs choreographed combinations using an elevated step to upbeat music. Yoga focuses on vinyasa (flow)-style yoga, building strength, flexibility and concentration while calming the mind. The strength training workout emphasizes toning and muscle definition using high reps and medium resistance and is designed to strengthen the cardiovascular system and boost balance, endurance and agility.
    The first week is free to sample. Payment must be made to continue beginning Monday, Feb. 20.
    For more information and registration, contact Amy Nazelrod, AFL coordinator, at 301-687-7934 or anazelrod@frostburg.edu.
