SFA to stage student-directed 'The Other Son'

The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Theatre will present a student-directed production of Luigi Pirandello's "The Other Son" at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24, and at 2 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25. All performances are in the Downstage Theatre located on the first floor of the Griffith Fine Arts Building.

Set in post World War I Sicily, where men are leaving for South America and abandoning their families, the one-act play follows the story of a woman stricken with grief from the abandonment by her own sons and her rejection of her third son who remains, explained Copperas Cove senior Miguel Maymi, the play's director.

The play is recommended for mature audiences. More

Faculty members of the Stephen F. Austin State University School of Music will be the featured performers during the annual Pi Kappa Lambda Recital at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 21, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus.

"This always-popular concert showcases our diverse faculty and their talent," said Dr. Deborah Dalton, SFA associate professor of voice and president of the local chapter of Pi Kappa Lambda, the national music honor society. "In addition, all proceeds benefit the Pi Kappa Lambda scholarship we give each year to the sophomore music major with the highest grade point average." More

 

Mr. and Miss SFA award nominations due Nov. 1

The deadline to nominate SFA seniors for the Mr. and Miss SFA honors is Monday, Nov. 1. Nomination forms are available online at www.sfaalumni.com and at the SFA Alumni Association office in the Tracie D. Pearman Alumni Center.

Nominations may come from faculty, staff members or from an officer of a student organization of which the nominee is a member. Selections are made by a committee of faculty, staff, students and alumni. Finalists will be contacted for interviews.

To be eligible, SFA seniors must have completed 90 credit hours, with 48 of those hours completed at SFA, and must have a minimum 2.5 grade-point average. Candidates also must be within 12 months of graduating from SFA and enrolled in the 2011 spring semester. Also, candidates must not have received this type of award from SFA or any other college or university.

The Mr. and Miss SFA title is an award presented each year by the SFA Alumni Association to exemplary students who well represent and promote SFA. Recipients are selected based on their scholarship, participation and leadership in academic and co-curricular activities, citizenship and service and loyalty to the university.

The Mr. SFA Award was established in honor of the late Stan McKewen, a 1934 SFA graduate. The Miss SFA Award was established in honor of Arnodean Covin, who was named Miss SFA in 1940, 1941 and 1942.

The awards are scheduled for presentation at an SFA basketball game during the spring semester. For more information, contact Katy Crawford with the SFA Alumni Association at (936) 468-3407.

Accomplishments

Dr. Mario Ajero, assistant professor of piano, performed and gave a teaching demonstration for the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School in Midland, Penn., from his office in the Griffith Fine Arts Building. This was made possible by videoconference and technology that connected the Yamaha Disklavier piano at SFA to the Disklavier piano on stage at the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center over 1,200 miles away. Ajero gave a long-distance lesson to one of the music composition students and was able to demonstrate ways to interact with students in this online environment. Ajero also gave a collaborative performance as he accompanied one of the student singers from the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School. Among the audience members was the Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, who was visiting the school to learn more about this leading developer and provider of digital education solutions aimed at meeting the needs of 21st century learners.
