David Parks, voice faculty tenor in the School of Music, will sing at several performances before the end of the academic year.  Parks and the Ithaca College Bach Ensemble performed a program of J. S. Bach at Hamilton College on April 28. 

Parks appears as guest soloist at SUNY Cortland in a production of Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle and will sing the tenor solos in performances of Handel's Messiah with the Catskill Choral Society in early May. 

Since the licensing and trademark enforcement program was implemented last fall, Ithaca College and its partner, Strategic Marketing Affiliates, have successfully approved and partnered with more than 90 vendors as official licensees. There are two lists of licensed vendors. One list is sorted alphabetically by vendor name and the other by the type of product sold. The products offered by these vendors range from apparel to gifts and novelties. With over 90 vendors available—and more being added each month—there should be at least one vendor to meet your merchandising needs. If not, new vendors can fill out an application form to become an official licensee. Only official licensees may produce merchandise bearing Ithaca College’s name and protected terms.
