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.

The United Way Stone Soup Philanthropy Corps of Ithaca College is proud to announce that it completed its inaugural allocations cycle on November 15, 2009.

One recipient is Finger Lakes ReUse, who will use their grant to kick-start their Computer ReUse program and help provide the facilities for a showroom to sell recycled computers and make Ithaca more eco-friendly. The other recipient is Challenge Industries, who will use their grant to assist with the foundation of a healthy eating, whole foods program for local residents with physical and cognitive disabilities.

Founded in late 2007, Stone Soup is the first student United Way organization at Ithaca College, and throughout the 2008-2009 school year, the group raised nearly $3,000 by drawing on various funding sources. These included the Ithaca College faculty-staff United Way campaign, the annual family carnival and other campus opportunities.
