Mercurynews.com posted a list of its picks for the the best Classical CDs of 2009, which included Steven Hartke: "The Horse with the Lavender Eye:  Piano and Chamber Music."  Featured performers on the recording include School of Music clarinetist Richard Faria. 

The critic wrote:  "With each encounter, I'm taken with the sparkle and virtuosity, the rhythmic vitality, melodic invention and overall alertness of Hartke's music. .... The performances here, by the Los Angeles Piano Quartet, clarinetist Richard Faria, violinist Ellen Jewett and pianist Xak Bjerken are exceptional; they breathe this music."

In this wonderful holiday season, the example of IC's own Stone Soup Philanthropy Corps made a wonderful contribution of their hard work to two United Way Agencies (Finger Lakes ReUse and Challenge Industries).  I hope you read of their allocation of over $3000 to assist with specific programs for these agencies (12/16 Intercom).  Our own IC faculty and staff helped make this a success by donating to the Stone Soup effort through United Way contributions.  The effort of these students is nothing short of fantastic!  Their hard work, planning, and belief in helping others makes the United Way come alive in our community.  For more information about Stone Soup, email unitedwaystonesoup@gmail.com.
