New sonata evokes Muskoka experience

A recital by a trio of faculty members in the School of Music will feature the world premiere of a sonata that draws on the composer’s time in Canada’s cottage country.

Clarinetist Trevor Pittman, pianist Gregory Butler and violinist Lillian Scheirich will perform in recital Sunday, November 13, at 2:30 p.m. in Assumption University Chapel. The program includes sonatas by Johannes Brahms and César Franck and the Trio for violin, clarinet and piano by Aram Khachaturian, as well as a new work by former UWindsor instructor Robert Rival.

Earth and environmental sciences students mine for gold in northern Manitoba

Mike Glendenning and his colleagues were prospecting for gold in the far reaches of northern Manitoba this summer, but may have inadvertently picked up some new knowledge in the field of entomology.

“There’s mosquitoes there, blackflies, horseflies, moose flies and new breeds of flies I’ve never even heard of,” the geology major and graduate student in Earth and Environmental Sciences said of the bugs he encountered during one of several two-week work rotations he’s done in the remote mining town of Lynn Lake.
