a Master Works Recital featuring classical art songs about the world of childhood
at 7:30 p.m. Friday, February 20, in the Little Theater.
“The Children’s Hour: British and American Art Songs about Childhood” will be presented by two SUNY Broome Music Program faculty members: mezzo-soprano Julia Grella O’Connell and pianist Pej Reitz.
The concert, to be performed entirely in English, features works by 20th-century composers Charles Ives and George Butterworth, as well as pieces by the acclaimed Scottish composer James MacMillan, born in 1959, and a recent song cycle, “brutal arithmetic,” by American composer Delvyn Case. The songs use poetry – by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, A.A. Milne and A.E. Housman, among others – that reflect upon various aspects of childhood, from the lighthearted to the solemn, and ultimately to the inevitable leave-taking of adulthood.
Julia Grella O’Connell has performed with Syracuse Opera, ConcertOpera Philadelphia, and Opera at Caramoor, and has toured the U.S. and Europe with the chamber ensemble she founded, The Risorgimento Project. She has taught on the music faculties of Hunter College and The City College of New York, and holds a doctorate in voice performance from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Pej Reitz, well-known to music-lovers of the Southern Tier, is an acclaimed soloist, educator and collaborative pianist who has performed both throughout the area and throughout the world. O’Connell and Reitz serve on the music faculty at SUNY Broome.
“The Children’s Hour” will take place at the Little Theater, located in the Student Center on the SUNY Broome campus. Tickets are $7 for the general public and free for students, and are available at the door.

Substitutes United in Broome
In the U.S., K-12 schoolteachers who are “not engaged” or are “actively disengaged” at work miss an estimated 2.3 million more workdays than teachers who are “engaged” in their jobs.
Why are so many teachers disengaged? What does 2.3 million additional loss of work days mean to a student’s education? How do you ensure you are among the 30% who are engaged?

The Center and the President’s Taskforce will hold a

(for more details see the full article in the FOCUS)
As future educators, understanding, respecting, and embracing diversity is critical to student success.
This deliberation is a great opportunity to build awareness and engage with others in the conversation of racial and ethnic justice.
