Inside Gustavus (October 24, 2013)

Volume 46, Number 8

Faculty/Staff Activities

Mark Lammers (Music) was quoted in the June 2013 issue of, WASBE World (World Association of Symphonic Band Ensembles). The article titled, "Csaba Deak, born 16th April 1932, Hungary", was written by Tim Reynish, a past president of WASBE. Much of the article is taken from, Nordic Instrumental Music for Colleges and Universities, a catalog published by Lammers in 1991. Csaba Deak was commissioned to compose a work for the Gustavus Band, Directed by Doug Nimmo and premiered here in 1989 with the composer present. The composition was tilted, Gustadolphony.

Ana Adams (MLLC) and Angelique Dwyer (MLLC) published an interview with Nicaraguan film director Florence Jaugey entitled "Cine nacional comprometido con la juventud nicaragüense: Una entrevista con la directora Florence Jaugey" (National Cinema Engaged with Nicaraguan Youth: An Interview with Film Director Florence Jaugey). The interview was published this fall by Confluencia, the journal of the University of Northern Colorado. The interview was made possible by the PRAGDA film grant that Adams and Dwyer obtained from Spain's Secretary of Culture to hold the spring 2013 Hispanic Film Festival on campus. It was during this festival that Jaugey's film "La Yuma" was screened along with a post screening Q&A with Jaugey. It was this skype interview that initiated the conversation between Jaugey, Adams and Dwyer. We thank all of the departments that graciously donated towards securing the PRAGDA grant. Without them this interview and publication would not have materialized.

Paul and Helen Baumgartner, emeritus professors of music, have been busy with four-hand piano performances of selections from Dvorak's "Slavonic Dances." In August they appeared at Morgan Creek Vineyard (along with Ben Marti '03, Helen's student). In September they played in St. Paul for Mu Phi Epsilon (International Music Fraternity), in October for a monthly book club meeting at the Gustavus President's House, and they were also featured on the Artist Series of Thursday Musical at the Bloomington Arts Center. Upcoming appearances include the Minnesota Valley Music Teachers Association annual Christmas brunch, and the GSR Fine Arts Festival at the Mankato Verizon Center in December.
