Craig Sylvern, Music, was the guest artist at the 2016 Florida State University SaxoFest, hosted by Professor Patrick Meighan (2nd from right in photo). Dr. Sylvern performed a recital of works composed for him as well as works he has adapted for saxophone. The final selection of the recital was one of his own compositions, Et Ha’Masah, performed by the FSU Graduate Saxophone Quartet. In addition to the recital, he held a master class for FSU College of Music saxophone students and presented a lecture entitled, “Keep Your Eye on the Prize—Collecting skills on the way to your goal.” The SaxoFest concluded with a performance by the Jason Kaplan jazz quartet.

Jose Lezcano, Music, is making his debut as performer in Havana, Cuba, during the Identidades International Guitar Festival, Feb. 1–6. He’s scheduled to perform a solo recital set, and also appear as soloist in his second double concerto for guitar, flute, and string orchestra, “Sojourners,” at the Basilica de San Francisco de Asisi, Feb. 3, with Swiss soloist Antipe da Stella, flute, and Orquesta Solistas de La Habana (directed by Iván Valiente). The venue is the Basílica Menor del Convento de san Francisco de Asís in the historic center of Havana. His solo guitar recital set will include works by Fernando Sor, Celedonio Romero, Antonio Lauro, and some original compositions of his own. The Dúo Con-Trastes will also give the premiere of Lezcano’s Key West Suite for two guitars, composed during his artist residency at the Studios of Key West in June 2013.

Melanie Adams and Wanda Swiger, both Physical Education, co-edited a textbook, Epidemiology for Athletic Trainers, that will be released at the end of February. Jeff Timmer and Scot Ward also contributed. The idea was developed after Adams couldn’t find an athletic-training-specific text for a Keene State course, PE 340 (Epidemiology of Illness and Injury).
