Attending a Public Night

To attend a public night, just show up in front of the Park School building (O lot entrance). A shuttle van will make regular runs to convey people up to the observatory and back down. There is no parking available up at the observatory. The access road is NOT lighted, so please do not walk up.

Bad Weather Plan

The "go/no-go" decision for any public night will be made at 3:30 p.m. on the scheduled date. Our web page and the recorded message at the observatory will be updated shortly thereafter to reflect the decision for that evening. So if you check our site or call the observatory at 274-3012 after about 4:00 p.m. (to give me time to update things) you will get the final decision for that evening.

During the final week of the fall semester, the AiRES Saxophone Quartet (Rachel Kininger '12, Allyce Barron '11, Erika Friedman '12, and Sara Emery '12), traveled to local retirement centers and performed holiday classics for the residents to enjoy. This "Christmas Tour" included performances at Bridges-Cornell Heights, Oak Hill Manor, the Beech Tree Care Center, and the Lakeside Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Freshman Eric Troiano joined AiRES on three of their concerts. This act of community outreach is the main focus of the Ithaca College Saxophone Society, a new organization formed in Fall 2008. The ICSS plans to continue implementing outreach programs, including student clinics at local public schools, providing low-cost lessons, and performing for charity functions.

The society will be presenting a saxophone concert on Saturday, February 21 at 3:00 p.m. in Ford Auditorium. This concert, which will feature music for saxophone quartets and a large saxophone ensemble, is free and open to the public.
