3:30 PM - 4:30 PM Benjamin Felzer Seminar
Benjamin Felzer, an assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., will speak on the “Effect of Climate Change, Land Use Change, Elevated Carbon Dioxide, and Air Pollution on Ecosystem Services in the U.S. Mid-Atlantic Region” on at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday April 2, in room 3131 Life Sciences Building. Felzer is an ecosystem modeler whose work focuses on coupling biogeochemistry, climate, land-use and water. According to Felzer, climate change is occurring in a context of rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, atmospheric pollutants, and continued human land use change. Ecosystem services involving provisioning of food, wood, and fresh water, as well as the supporting roles of nutrient cycling and primary production, are subject to how vegetation responds to these changes to the land and atmosphere. “Climate change not only includes changes to the hydrological cycle in a context of warming, but also possibly an increase in extreme events like floods and droughts,” Felzer explained. “Vegetation response to warming is generally positive unless offset by limited moisture, while soils release more carbon to the atmosphere as a result of enhanced microbial decomposition.” Elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide levels enhance vegetation growth for C3 plants, but only up to a point. “Direct human change of the land surface, through increased urbanization, agricultural conversion or abandonment, or timber harvest, is obviously the most direct impact on vegetation,” Felzer said. “Air pollution involves surface-level ozone, which is detrimental to plant growth, and nitrogen deposition, which fertilizes plants.” Felzer’s talk will explore the role of each of these historically as well as into the 21st century. His approach involves a biogeochemical model of carbon, nitrogen and water cycling between the land and the atmosphere. The model is used to explore the role of each of these factors on forest growth, crop yield, available water, nitrogen cycling, and carbon sequestration within the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States.

This biographical drama shows Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda during the 1970s, at the peak of their heated rivalry. Both on the track and off, Hunt and Lauda couldn’t have been more different. Yet as much as Englishman Hunt’s showy public persona clashed with Lauda’s reputation for tightly-controlled perfectionism, both men remained bound together by one undeniable fact—they were both among the best drivers ever to grace the racetrack. When a horrific crash during the 1976 Grand Prix at the Nürburgring nearly claims Lauda’s life, however, a grudging respect begins to develop between the two racers as Hunt realizes just how devoted his greatest adversary is to the sport they both love.

In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.

The Victorian Magic-Lantern Show, a free event for the Community presented by The Royce J. and Caroline B. Watt's Museum, the Children's Discovery Museum of West Virginia and the Morgantown History Museum Get ready to travel back in time—with a Magic-Lantern Show. National Public Radio says, “It’s an incredible experience… If they come to your town, don’t miss them. They’re a living national treasure.” A hundred years ago, everyone joined in the fun of watching these Magic Lantern Shows on the big screen, clapping and stomping one minute, moved to tears the next. Colors swirled, animated cartoons cavorted, dramatic stories unfolded. And everyone joined in singing “Froggie Would A Wooing Go” as a dashing young frog met disaster on the road to love. An early movie? Not at all. This was a Magic Lantern Show, the great grandpa of the movies. It came before the silent films, yet it was in color, and had sound and spectacular special effects. Now the American Magic-Lantern Theater (www.MagicLanternShows.com) has recreated this popular entertainment, and is bringing its “Victorian Magic-Lantern Spring Show” to Morgantown. The Children’s Discovery Museum of West Virginia is hosting this free event for the whole community on April 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the Metropolitan Theater. Adults and children will be amazed at the feeling of being transported back in time, experiencing a Victorian era event like no other. The Victorian Magic-Lantern show is free and open to the public. Doors to the Metropolitan Theater, located at 373 High Street, will open at 6:30 p.m. This program is recommended for adults and children 3 and up. For more information, call 304-292-4646, visit the children's museum’s website at www.cdmwv.org or contact Julie Bryan at director.cdmwv@gmail.com For more information on the American Magic-Lantern Theater, visit their website at www.magiclanternshows.com Support for this program was provided by the Weldon Foundation. Additional support was provided by the Royce J. and Caroline B. Watts Museum and the Morgantown History Museum. The Children’s Discovery Museum of West Virginia is located in the Mountaineer Mall at 5000 Greenbag Road. It is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. General admission is $4 per child over 12 months, adults and children under 12 months are free of charge.
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Rush (FREE Movie)
This biographical drama shows Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda during the 1970s, at the peak of their heated rivalry. Both on the track and off, Hunt and Lauda couldn’t have been more different. Yet as much as Englishman Hunt’s showy public persona clashed with Lauda’s reputation for tightly-controlled perfectionism, both men remained bound together by one undeniable fact—they were both among the best drivers ever to grace the racetrack. When a horrific crash during the 1976 Grand Prix at the Nürburgring nearly claims Lauda’s life, however, a grudging respect begins to develop between the two racers as Hunt realizes just how devoted his greatest adversary is to the sport they both love.

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM Art Up Close! WVU Alumnus Michael Slaven

The Art Museum of West Virginia University and The Friends of the Museum announce the next “Art Up Close!” event of the spring semester, focusing on individual works of art from the museum collection. The April 8 presentation will feature WVU alumnus Michael Slaven discussing an early modern print produced by Heironymous Cock’s print shop and attributed to Heironymous Bosch.

Titled ““The World Turned Upside Down: Early Modern Carnivalesque Inversions in Heironymous Cock's Temptation of Saint Anthony,” the lecture will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Museum Education Center (formerly the Erickson Alumni Center) adjacent to the WVU Creative Arts Center. All the events are free and open to the public.

The print to be examined, “The Temptation of Saint Anthony” (1561) is rich with imagery that slyly subverts the usual social boundaries that held the sacred from the profane, that separated high and low culture, and that kept violence and order in their respective places.

According to Dr. Slaven, this is a strategy that is also found in the early modern carnival, where kings and servants reversed roles, when saints and sinners jostled together, where all the boundaries of ordinary life blurred, dissolved, and were later reinvented. The “world turned upside down” in carnivalesque disorder created an outlet for criticism and even the expression of revolutionary sentiments.

Slaven received his doctorate from WVU in 1993 and is currently professor of European Cultural and Social History and chair-elect of the Department of History and Political Science at California University of Pennsylvania.

He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, a member of the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences Advisory Committee for WVU, and also teaches a summer course at WVU entitled “Print, Propaganda, and Art” in the School of Art and Design.

His areas of expertise include propaganda, printed imagery, 17th-century France, Early Modern Europe, art, and critical theory.

His recent publications include “Relational Art and the Appropriation of the Public Sphere,” in the International Journal of Arts and Sciences, which is an examination of Habermas’ idea of the communicative public sphere in the Relational Art movement.

He has recently presented papers at national and international academic conferences in Toronto, Greensboro, N.C., Philadelphia, and Miami.

His research has included: an examination of French cultural critic Nicolas Bourriaud's concept of postproduction; the role of the bourgeois public sphere in the Relational Art movement; the role of carnival and festival in revolts in 17th-century France; and political pamphlets published during the regency of King Louis XIV.

The Art Up Close! presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session and light refreshments. Audience members will have the opportunity to view the actual work of art.

8:00 PM - 10:00 PM Movie and Munchies - Lone Survivor
Based on a true story, director Peter Berg's Lone Survivor stars Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, and Emile Hirsch as four Navy SEALs whose sensitive mission into the Afghan mountains is unexpectedly compromised, leading to a fierce skirmish with a small army of Taliban soldiers. The year is 2005. In the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks, the War in Afghanistan is well under way when military intelligence learns that a senior Taliban member is hiding out in a remote village deep in the Hindu Kush mountains of the Kunar Province. Convinced that his capture or killing could turn the tide of the difficult war in favor of the United States, the Navy SEALs hatch Operation Red Wings. The goal is simple -- send a select team of soldiers to stake out the village from the surrounding mountains, and move on their target when the time is right. Under the leadership of Lieutenant Michael Murphy (Kitsch), Marcus Luttrell (Wahlberg), Matt Axelson (Foster), and Danny Dietz (Hirsch) reach their checkpoint, and quickly realize that another nearby hill will provide a better vantage spot. Shortly after arriving at that new location and getting a positive ID on their target, however, the soldiers are caught off guard by three wandering shepherds, including a young boy. Ultimately, a heated vote over what to do with the captured shepherds leads Lt. Murphy to decide that the best course of action is to abide by the rules of engagement, meaning that the soldiers will abort the mission, release the captives, and retreat to their extraction point. Shortly after the shepherds are set free, however, the four SEALs find themselves surrounded by dozens of Taliban soldiers, and engaged in a fierce gunfight that -- with the aid of some truly brave villagers -- only one of them will make it out of.

6:30 PM - 9:30 PM WVU Muslim Students’ Association To Show Award Winning Documentary “Five Broken Cameras”
An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, “5 Broken Cameras” is a personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil'in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. Co-directed by Palestinian Emad Burnat and Israeli Guy Davidi, the documentary was shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, Structured around the destruction of Burnat's cameras, the filmmakers' collaboration follows one family's evolution over five years of turmoil. Burnat watches from behind the lens as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify, and lives are lost. "I feel like the camera protects me," he says, "but it's an illusion." This film won the 2012 Sundance Film Festival Award and the Golden Apricot at the 2012 Yerevan International Film Festival in Armenia for Best Documentary Film, and was nominated for a 2012 Academy Award.

In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.

7:30 PM Darius Rucker True Believers Tour
Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Darius Rucker will bring his True Believers Tour featuring Eli Young Band with special guest Corey Smith to Morgantown Thursday, April 10. Showtime at the West Virginia University Coliseum is set for 7:30 p.m.

Darius Rucker first attained multi-platinum status in the music industry as former lead singer and rhythm guitarist Hootie & the Blowfish. Since Rucker crossed genres to country and bluegrass, he has earned a whole new legion of fans. In 2013, Rucker reached incredible heights with his cover of Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel,” taken from his latest album “True Believers.” The song shot to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country chart and has been nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance at this year’s awards.

Joining him on the tour are four musicians who met during their college days in Texas. The Eli Young Band has emerged from nights spent performing in small clubs before hundreds to concert venues in the thousands. Their group earned their first platinum record with 2013’s “Crazy Girl.” The single is a perfect introduction to “Life At Best,” their latest album that takes the band’s wide-ranging multi-genre influences and distills them into a focused, engaging vision: edgy country with hints of heartland rock bands such as Tom Petty and classic Eagles. 

Morgantown favorite and down-to-Earth singer-songwriter Corey Smith will open the True Believers tour. Born and raised in the town of Jefferson, Ga., just a few miles northwest of the musical hotbed of Athens, Smith has carved out a successful career by writing and singing, not about the idealized country imagery of trucks and bonfires, but instead his lyrics paint the experience of growing up far from big-city sidewalks.

WVU students receive $10 discount with a valid Mountaineer Card at the campus box offices and at 304-293-SHOW. Limit: One discounted ticket per I.D.

The Hunger Games saga continues in this sequel that finds a revolution brewing as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) take a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts, and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) plots their downfall during preparations for the Quarter Quell, which only occurs every 25 years in celebration of the Capitol’s victory over the districts. Hoping to put an end to the growing threat of rebellion, President Snow announces that the Quell’s tributes will be reaped from the existing pool of victors—guaranteeing Katniss a place in the arena. Though Katniss vows to keep Peeta safe even if it means sacrificing her own life, her fellow tributes have a different plan.

9:15 PM - 11:30 PM The Hunger Games (FREE Movie)
In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.

Start Time 11:45 PM Erin Brockovich (FREE Movie) (Multi-Day Event)
Julia Roberts won an Academy Award in this legal drama based on the true story of a woman who helped win the largest settlement ever paid in a direct-action lawsuit. Erin Brockovich (Roberts) is a single mother of three who, after losing a personal injury lawsuit, asks her lawyer, Ed Masry (Albert Finney), if he can help her find a job. Ed gives her work as a file clerk in his office, and she runs across some information on a little-known case filed against Pacific Gas and Electric. Erin begins digging into the particulars of the case, convinced that the facts simply don’t add up, and persuades Ed to allow her to do further research; in time, she discovers a systematic cover-up of the industrial poisoning of a city’s water supply, which threatens the health of the entire community. Erin Brockovich was directed by Steven Soderbergh; Julia Roberts earned a $20 million payday for her work on the film, the highest salary paid to a female film star up to that time.

9:15 PM - 11:40 PM The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (FREE Movie)
The Hunger Games saga continues in this sequel that finds a revolution brewing as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) take a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts, and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) plots their downfall during preparations for the Quarter Quell, which only occurs every 25 years in celebration of the Capitol’s victory over the districts. Hoping to put an end to the growing threat of rebellion, President Snow announces that the Quell’s tributes will be reaped from the existing pool of victors—guaranteeing Katniss a place in the arena. Though Katniss vows to keep Peeta safe even if it means sacrificing her own life, her fellow tributes have a different plan.

Start Time 11:45 PM Erin Brockovich (FREE Movie) (Multi-Day Event)
Julia Roberts won an Academy Award in this legal drama based on the true story of a woman who helped win the largest settlement ever paid in a direct-action lawsuit. Erin Brockovich (Roberts) is a single mother of three who, after losing a personal injury lawsuit, asks her lawyer, Ed Masry (Albert Finney), if he can help her find a job. Ed gives her work as a file clerk in his office, and she runs across some information on a little-known case filed against Pacific Gas and Electric. Erin begins digging into the particulars of the case, convinced that the facts simply don’t add up, and persuades Ed to allow her to do further research; in time, she discovers a systematic cover-up of the industrial poisoning of a city’s water supply, which threatens the health of the entire community. Erin Brockovich was directed by Steven Soderbergh; Julia Roberts earned a $20 million payday for her work on the film, the highest salary paid to a female film star up to that time.

Keb' Mo, Joan Osborne, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Tommy Malone as part of Mountain Stage

Keb' Mo'

Keb' Mo' is a tour de force in the blues genre. The guitarist and singer-songwriter has won three Grammy Awards for Best Contemporary Blues album (along with multiple additional nominations). 

Joan Osborne

Considered one of the great voices of her generation, Joan Osborne is a multi-platinum selling recording artist and seven-time Grammy nominee. Her debut album, "Relish," wove together strands of American roots music, poetic lyrics and impassioned vocals, and produced the international hit "(What if God Was) One of Us." 

Dirty Dozen Brass Band

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band effortlessly flows between jazz, funk and soul all while incorporating the flavor of New Orleans. Celebrating its 35th anniversary, the band is releasing "Twenty Dozen," its first studio release in six years. It's an upbeat effort that seamlessly blends R&B, jazz, funk, Afro-Latino grooves, some Caribbean flavor, and even a Rihanna cover. 

Tommy Malone

Tommy Malone has had a musical love affair with fans for over 30 years. As front man of the legendary Americana act The Subdudes, he has carved his way as a gifted singer, player and songwriter with a distinctive musical voice. Tommy's self-assured exterior masks a writer who mines heartache and elation, the surreal and the everyday, and who crafts these experiences into instantly memorable tunes. He is an artist who exudes a laid-back, down-to-earth, instantly familiar style that epitomizes Americana Rock Music. In Tommy's solo band, as lead guitarist and singer, he punctuates soulful, heart-felt vocals with playing that is at turns joyful, incendiary and melancholic.

In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM WVU Tech April 2014 Brown Bag Lecture
Come hear Mr. Mark Jones, Lecturer in the WVU Tech Department of Physical Education, give the April Brown Bag Lecture, "Societal Trends and Youth Sport" In the United States youth sports is a highly popular activity that is assumed to have important physical, psychological and social development consequences for those millions of children and youth involved. Furthermore, given the contemporary widespread of inactivity and obesity in American children, youth sports is thought to play a major role in improving children’s health and welfare for years to come. Despite these perceived benefits, youth sports has its critics that see this highly popular children’s activity as plagued by major problems. Concerns have been voiced regarding the highly competitive nature of youth sports and it is often argued that young athletes become injured or burnout as a result of excessive stress and pressure. Still others are thought to learn inappropriate behaviors such as aggression or poor sportspersonship from their involvement. One problem facing society is a lack of understanding relative to the scientific knowledge on children involved in sport and physical activity that has evolved over the last 30 years. This Brown Bag Lecture will explore how current and future parents, guardians and grandparents of youth can respond to these changes.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM Wind Symphony Concert

The Wind Symphony is conducted by John Hendricks, III. He will be joined by Christopher J. Nichter, assistant director of the WVU Marching Band and the WVU Basketball Pep Band, who teaches in the WVU School of Music, and graduate student conductor Chelsea Corrao, who holds a bachelor’s degree in music education from WVU and is currently studying for a master’s degree in applied conducting.

The program will include:

Overture to “Colas Breugnon” by Dmitri Kabalevsky, a brisk, brilliant, and high-spirited overture written as the curtain-raiser for Kabalevsky’s opera based on Romain Rolland’s lusty novel of life in Burgundy, France, during the 16th century.

“Echoes and Elegies” by David Williams, a graduate of WVU where he earned degrees in music education, music history, and music composition. He is a music specialist for Kanawha County Schools, conducts the West Virginia Youth Symphony’s wind ensemble, and has been the classical music critic for The Charleston Gazette since 1990. 

“Circus Polka” by Igor Stravinsky is a brief, light and charming work that was composed in 1942 for the Ringling Brothers Circus to accompany a ballet of elephants.

“Variants on a Mediaeval Tune” by Norman Dello Joio. “In dulci jubilo” is a melody that has been used by many composers, including J.S. Bach. Dello Joio composed five variations of this mediaeval melody through five true metamorphoses, strongly contrasting in tempo and character.

“A Festival Prelude” by Alfred Reed is a spirited work is built entirely from one main theme and two fanfare-like figures that occur throughout the score. The brasses are separated into three distinct color groups and the woodwind writing centers around the clarinet choir.

“Easter Monday on the White House Lawn” by John Philip Sousa was composed to depict the colorful Easter egg roll that occurs annually in Washington, D.C. on the day after Easter Sunday. 

“Shortcut Home” by Dana Wilson is a rousing and rather elaborate fanfare that features each section of the ensemble. Drawing upon various jazz styles, the music proclaims and cascades, always driving towards the final chord.

“The Frozen Cathedral” by John Mackey is an elaborate and sensational new work that depicts the grandeur, glacial construction, and mysterious darkness of one of the tallest mountains in the world – Mount McKinley in Alaska (or as the natives refer to as “Denali,” meaning “the great one”). Unique percussion, harp, and keyboard sounds, along with a bass flute, all contribute to a composition that pays tribute to one of the most awesome spectacles in the world.

When she successfully tracks down the owner of a box of boyhood treasures that she found in her house she begins to believe she might have the power to influence more of the people around her. This fairy-tale style film follows the heroine until she finds love and her place in life even though everyone around her has always underestimated her.

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM WVU, City to host solution-based dialogue on underage and high risk drinking
WVU, City to host solution-based dialogue on underage and high risk drinking An important discussion on underage and high risk drinking and possible solutions for this national issue will take place on the West Virginia University campus Wednesday, April 16, from 5:30-7 p.m. in Room G20 Ming Hsieh Hall, Downtown Campus. The community at large – from students and parents to school officials and health care professionals – are encouraged to attend and participate in the dialogue. The town hall-style meeting is being co-sponsored by WVU and the City of Morgantown with support from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It will feature representatives from the health care profession, law enforcement, student organizations, elected officials and the alcohol beverage commission. Scheduled panelists at the town hall meeting titled “Underage and High Risk Drinking: A Solution-Based Town Hall Dialogue” include: - Evan McIntyre, WVU Interfraternity Council President - Bob Roberts, WVU Police Chief - Jenny Selin, Mayor, City of Morgantown - Dr. Charles Whiteman, M.D., Emergency Medicine Physician, Ruby Memorial Hospital - Tom Valencia, Enforcement Director, WV Alcohol Beverage Control Administration - Helen Stubs, Vice President for Higher Education, EverFi (an organization devoted to the health and development of college students) L. Christopher Plein, associate professor of public administration and Eberly Family Professor for Outstanding Public Service, will moderate the dialogue. “Substance abuse in children ages 12 and older is growing, placing our young people’s health at risk,” said Cathy Yura, assistant vice president, WELL WVU. “This is not just a college-age issue, but one that we must all be concerned about as parents, as school officials as health care professionals and as enforcement agencies. We hope this dialogue will help all of us look for additional ways to curb this type of destructive and unhealthy behavior that begins at an early age.” Morgantown Mayor Jenny Selin added, “Alcohol consumption by area youth contributes to many of the issues we have in our community – injuries, destruction of property, DUIs – and while much is being done to curb this type of unhealthy and risky behavior, we can do more. I encourage the community to partner with us on ideas and solutions.” Morgantown Police Chief Ed Preston, school board members, senior University leaders, elected officials and others are expected to be on hand for the discussion. Parking in Lot 5, below the Business and Economics Building, that evening is free.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM "Henry IV" by William Shakespeare

Theatre Production: “Henry IV,” by William Shakespeare

April 16-17 & 22-27

In one of the most beloved of Shakespeare’s historical plays, we follow young Prince Hal, an rebellious and free-spirited son who spends his days and nights in the taverns of Eastcheap, a rough, working-class district in London. Hal is befriended by ribald Sir John Falstaff—one of Shakespeare's great comic characters—a rotund braggart with the charm of a snake-oil salesman. His disappointed father, Henry IV, is not pleased by his son's errant ways, and Prince Hal has to compete for his father’s attention with a rival, the fiery Hotspur, who better fits his father’s ideal of a worthy son. And it is with Hotspur that Hal must eventually do battle, as he seeks to prove himself a valiant successor to his father, the King.

The Forest Ecosystems Research Collaborative (FERC) of the WVU Division of Forestry and Natural Resources proudly presents “The Integrated Ecosystem Model (IEM): An Interdisciplinary Tool to Assess the Responses of Natural Resources to Climate Change” by A. David McGuire, Professor of Ecology, Alaska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, Department of Biology and Wildlife Institute of Arctic Biology, University of Alaska Fairbanks. The physical and biotic components of arctic and boreal ecosystems (permafrost, hydrology, vegetation, biogeochemistry, and disturbance) in Alaska and Northwest Canada are tightly linked and sensitive to climate change. It is important to represent interactions among the components to comprehensively assess how landscapes in this region may respond to climate change. Such an integrated model has the potential to provide resource managers the ability to better visualize potential future landscapes resulting from the interaction of biological and physical processes. In this study, an integrated framework was developed to couple (1) a model of disturbance dynamics and species establishment (ALFRESCO), (2) a model of soil dynamics, hydrology, vegetation succession, and ecosystem biogeochemistry (TEM), and (3) a model of permafrost dynamics (GIPL). We asynchronously coupled the three models to evaluate the long term effects of changes in climate and fire regime on vegetation distribution, soil organic horizons, and permafrost dynamics at kilometer-squared resolution for Alaska and Northwest Canada. The simulated changes in landscape structure and function have important implications for the management of natural resources in Alaska and Northwest Canada. The lecture will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday April 17, in 316 Percival Hall on West Virginia University's Evansdale Campus.

8:15 PM - 10:00 PM Symphony Orchestra Concert

Note: There has been a change in the start time for this concert. It will begin at 8:15 p.m.

The nationally acclaimed WVU Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Mitchell Arnold, will perform its final concert of the 2013-2014 school year with remarkable program that includes a new work by retiring WVU composer John Beall, as well as the WVU choirs and faculty soloists performing Schubert’s “Mass in G Major.”

The concert will be held Thursday, April 17, at 8:15 p.m. in the Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre at the Creative Arts Center. For tickets and information, call 304-293-SHOW.

 According to Dr. Arnold, who is director of Orchestral Studies at WVU, a new work, “Autumn Fire,” by Composer-in-Residence John Beall, was composed for the occasion of his retirement and will be performed at this concert.

 Directing the WVU Choirs in Schubert’s work will be guest conductor and WVU Director of Choral Activities Jeffery Redding.

Another special performance will be a new violin concerto by Christopher Jones, a composition student of Dr. Beall’s and also a member of WVUSO’s cello section.

 Also featured the varied program will be Leoš Janáček’s “Sinfonietta,” as well as the quick, sparkling “Slavonic Dance” by Antonín Dvořák.

“In ‘Sinfonietta,’ Janáček makes a deeply personal musical statement about nationality, liberty, and love,” said Dr. Arnold.  “It is remarkable how Janáček’s musical characters swing from exuberant folk dance, to surpassing beauty, to humor, and even grotesquerie before reaching a blazingly triumphant ending. 

“This ending will feature a brass fanfare played by nine trumpets, two bass trumpets, and two tenor tubas that join the orchestra at the close and are featured in the first part of the ‘Sinfonietta,’” he said. “We know that the fanfare heard at the beginning will come back at the end, and yet we all get chills when the music, at the most grotesquely chaotic moment, is ‘rescued’ by the returning fanfare. A more exhilarating ending to a piece, and a concert, is hard to imagine!

This concert also serves to celebrate the tenure of John Beall, Composer-in-Residence at WVU, who will retire at the end of this school year.

“Performing his newest work ‘Autumn Fire,’ is a fitting tribute to John, his years of teaching, and his output of wonderful music,” said Arnold. “As a demonstration of his impact on WVU and the world of music, we are also including a new work by one of his current students, Christopher Jones, featuring student violinist Taylor Giorgio and student conductor Eleanor Aban.

“While saying “goodbye” to Dr. Beall, the concert says “hello” to one of the most recent additions to our faculty, Dr. Jeffery Redding, WVU’s director of Choral Activities since January 2013. Redding will be conducting a performance of Franz Schubert’s ‘Mass in G Major’ for chorus, soloists, and orchestra. Faculty members Mandy Spivak, soprano, Nicholas Perna, tenor, and William Koehler, bass, join the ensembles as soloists.

“The sheer beauty of this setting of the Latin mass is remarkable especially considering its brevity. The closing Agnus Dei section begins in darkness but ends in sweetly soothing calm,” Arnold said.

For concert tickets and information, call the WVU Box Office at (304) 293-SHOW.

9:00 AM - 3:00 PM Kiddie Days at the Farm
Come for the chance to see a working farm that also functions as a center for teaching and research. Stay for the adorable baby animals. Thousands of youngsters from area elementary schools, Head Start programs, and child care centers will get a closer look at West Virginia University’s Animal Sciences Farm during Kiddie Days Tuesday, April 22, to Friday, April 25. Hosted by the Division of Animal and Nutritional Sciences in WVU’s Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Design, Kiddie Days gives kids (and adults) in the region the chance to learn more about where the food on their table comes from. “We will plan to have chickens with eggs hatching, and mothers with young sheep, swine, dairy and beef cattle,” said Matt Wilson, interim director of the Division. “Our farm personnel, students and faculty will be on hand during this four-day period to lead the tours, answer questions, and provide assistance as needed.” Tours will start each day at 9 a.m. with the last tour of the day beginning at 3 p.m. Admission is $2 per person. To schedule a tour for a group of 10 or more, call 304-293-2631 between 8:30 a.m. and noon and 1 and 4 p.m. to make a reservation. Individuals or small groups do not need to make reservations in advance. The farm is located on Stewartstown Road east of the intersection with West Run Road. “Biosecurity measures are very important and we are asking for visitors’ cooperation to maintain animal and human health standards,” said Wilson. “We are asking anyone, including chaperones, children, parents or other companions, who has traveled abroad in the last 10 to 14 days to please not accompany your group to the farm. We will have hand sanitizing solution stations placed along the tour, and we ask that visitors use them before leaving the farm.” Persons needing a disability-related accommodation to participate in this event should contact Denise Hunnell in the Davis College’s Office of the Dean at 304-293-2383 or at dhunnell@mail.wvu.edu.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM "Henry IV" by William Shakespeare

Theatre Production: “Henry IV,” by William Shakespeare

April 16-17 & 22-27

In one of the most beloved of Shakespeare’s historical plays, we follow young Prince Hal, an rebellious and free-spirited son who spends his days and nights in the taverns of Eastcheap, a rough, working-class district in London. Hal is befriended by ribald Sir John Falstaff—one of Shakespeare's great comic characters—a rotund braggart with the charm of a snake-oil salesman. His disappointed father, Henry IV, is not pleased by his son's errant ways, and Prince Hal has to compete for his father’s attention with a rival, the fiery Hotspur, who better fits his father’s ideal of a worthy son. And it is with Hotspur that Hal must eventually do battle, as he seeks to prove himself a valiant successor to his father, the King.

Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues east.

Thousands of youngsters from area elementary schools, Head Start programs, and child care centers will get a closer look at West Virginia University’s Animal Sciences Farm during Kiddie Days Tuesday, April 22, to Friday, April 25. Hosted by the Division of Animal and Nutritional Sciences in WVU’s Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Design, Kiddie Days gives kids (and adults) in the region the chance to learn more about where the food on their table comes from. “We will plan to have chickens with eggs hatching, and mothers with young sheep, swine, dairy and beef cattle,” said Matt Wilson, interim director of the Division. “Our farm personnel, students and faculty will be on hand during this four-day period to lead the tours, answer questions, and provide assistance as needed.” Tours will start each day at 9 a.m. with the last tour of the day beginning at 3 p.m. Admission is $2 per person. To schedule a tour for a group of 10 or more, call 304-293-2631 between 8:30 a.m. and noon and 1 and 4 p.m. to make a reservation. Individuals or small groups do not need to make reservations in advance. The farm is located on Stewartstown Road east of the intersection with West Run Road. “Biosecurity measures are very important and we are asking for visitors’ cooperation to maintain animal and human health standards,” said Wilson. “We are asking anyone, including chaperones, children, parents or other companions, who has traveled abroad in the last 10 to 14 days to please not accompany your group to the farm. We will have hand sanitizing solution stations placed along the tour, and we ask that visitors use them before leaving the farm.” Persons needing a disability-related accommodation to participate in this event should contact Denise Hunnell in the Davis College’s Office of the Dean at 304-293-2383 or at dhunnell@mail.wvu.edu.

1:00 PM - 6:00 PM Day of Design
Students in West Virginia University’s Division of Design and Merchandising will share their work at the 2014 Day of Design from 1p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday (April 25) in Room 122 Agricultural Sciences Annex on the Evansdale Campus.

“This year students have designed and constructed innovative interdisciplinary exhibits that reflect their creativity and commitment to sustainable practices through the use of recycled and repurposed materials,” said Cindy Beacham, associate professor of interior design in the Division. Additionally students will display their individual creative and academic work as part of their exhibits.

Students in the program’s visual merchandising course will exhibit displays based on work done in the Fashion and Dress through History course.

“Displays will showcase knowledge the students have learned throughout the semester in both courses,” said Nora MacDonald, professor of fashion design and merchandising. “Student teams designed and are building display for decades throughout the 20th century.” Each display will focus on a historic outfit and a contemporary re-interpretation. Students were challenged to work with and promote a local business, non-profit agency, or educational unit as they developed their display themes.

The displays will be open to the public on 1-5 p.m. in the lower lobby of Percival Hall.

The Division of Design and Merchandising, a unit in the WVU Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, offers undergraduate degrees in design studies, fashion design and merchandising and interior design. At the graduate level, students can pursue a Ph.D. in Human and Community Development and a M.S. in Design and Merchandising.

The webinar will be moderated locally by Doolarie Singh-Knights, an assistant extension professor of agricultural and resource economics in WVU’s Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, an agricultural economics specialist with the WVU Extension Service and the local and regional foods scholar at the Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development.
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM Colloquium Presentation by Prof Margaret Wickens Pearce-University of Kansas
Modern maps of the United States are covered with place names assigned by colonists and settlers and derived primarily from European languages and surnames. However, long before these people arrived in what they called “The New World,” rivers, lakes, landforms, and population centers bore names reflecting the cultural knowledge of the millions of indigenous peoples who already inhabited the continent. This week Professor Margaret Wickens Pearce, of the department of geography at the University of Kansas, will discuss her work advancing the Native American voice in mapping tribes’ ancestral lands. The West Virginia University Geography Colloquium Series, the Native American Studies Program, and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology will host her colloquium presentation at 3 p.m. April 25, in room 325 of Brooks Hall on the downtown campus. The event is free and open to the public. - See more at: http://wvutoday.wvu.edu/n/2014/04/22/native-american-mapmaker-margaret-wickens-pearce-to-present-at-wvu-colloquium-april-25#sthash.LBOY98fd.dpuf

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM "Henry IV" by William Shakespeare

Theatre Production: “Henry IV,” by William Shakespeare

April 16-17 & 22-27

In one of the most beloved of Shakespeare’s historical plays, we follow young Prince Hal, an rebellious and free-spirited son who spends his days and nights in the taverns of Eastcheap, a rough, working-class district in London. Hal is befriended by ribald Sir John Falstaff—one of Shakespeare's great comic characters—a rotund braggart with the charm of a snake-oil salesman. His disappointed father, Henry IV, is not pleased by his son's errant ways, and Prince Hal has to compete for his father’s attention with a rival, the fiery Hotspur, who better fits his father’s ideal of a worthy son. And it is with Hotspur that Hal must eventually do battle, as he seeks to prove himself a valiant successor to his father, the King.
